Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! This is a great book that makes us all more aware of the situation of our world. We simply can not conduct business the way that we have in the past or live with oblivious actions. The earth is not a business in liquidation. The green trends that are occuring now and that are gaining momentum are vital to sustaining our earth. This is a global book with a global focus, we are all in this together. The time is ripe for change! Nicole Boles My Idea For Change
