Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 68

I’m sharing “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas.

You can have them for free.

Be a Linchpin.  Develop something: ship, ship, ship!

Veggie:

No matter how much I think about sustainable living, it’s hard to get past the plant based diet.

Bill Maher (the comedian) is quoted as saying that the vegetarian in a Hummer trumps the Prius Hybrid driving customer in the McDonald’s drive through for minimizing their carbon footprint, and he’s right!

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

Meat as an industrial food source consumes an enormous amount of energy that gets wasted and subsidized nearly every step of the process (planting, fertilizing, and harvesting industrial feeds…then the slaughter, inspection, and transportation debacle…followed by the necessary cooking process) while consuming more energy as the nutrients dwindle away.  Even without the switch to a plant-based diet, improvements can be made by following the small-farm, grass-fed, grass-finished model with biodynamic principles in place.  Who will lead this revolution?

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Farming.  Sustainable!

In many ways, that’s a good thing–treating different people differently, rewarding good customers, adding fluidity to transactions. But for most buyers, most of […]
  • Ringing vs wringing
    Ringing is resonant. A small force causes sympathetic vibrations, and magic happens. Wringing requires significant effort and can even destroy the object it is applied to. When you ring a bell for your clients, you’ve delivered with care and empathy. But when you seek to wring every dollar out of a transaction, you’ve probably engaged […]
