Entrepreneurs wanted for feature news

Postby jeovana » Thu, 09 Feb 2012 9:56 pm

Hi there,

I'm a writer for an online biz news site. I'm working on a story on the top 10 green practices of business firms here in South-east Asia, would be more than happy if I could get some of you who have businesses that integrate GREEN elements into your systems/operations/products...etc

Would just like to get some quotes on this. Let me know if any of you are keen and just drop me a PM.

thank you! :)
Live life to the fullest!

Isn't it like "Green IT"? where you try and carbon neutralise your company?

Its about reducing the employees and companies Eco Foot print. Eg. using recycled paper in printers instead a new bleached paper, employees catching busses, trains to work, walking, riding, etc. rather than driving in a car by themselves, using recycled printed paper for note pads and scribbling, recycling materials like bottles, cans, cartons, print cartridges, general papers, etc rather than putting into general bins for landfill. (does Singapore have these concepts?? I know that in my apartment, we dont separate our wastes for recycling...we get 10c deposit return from where i come from on most cans, bottles, etc.) I think our survey for work a few years ago went down to what you eat for work lunch... aka do you have salads and raw fruit/veg, as opposed to cooked or high processed foods, which have a foot print due to energy use in cooking/preparation... but that is the basics that I remember.

Yes that is ultimately what the Green movement boils down to, a fascistic way to monitor, control and tax every facet of peoples' lives.

p.s. recycling is mostly bull. The only thing worth recycling is Alu, everything else the consumer pays additional taxes in order to recycle (i.e. recycling is a cost, and not a profit). Since none of the latter resources are limited, you could ask what is the point?

Grass-roots environmentalism is one thing, but the modern day green movement is quite another . 'Follow the money' and power, as they say.
