It takes holistic thinking to be green; understanding the environmental impact a product has from its inception to its introduction to the waste stream and every stop in between. Understanding and adopting sustainable business practices requires a new awareness of the world; the whole world, its natural systems and all of its species. It requires a deeper understanding of how the Earth works, and how man's processes affect natures's delicate balance. Understanding sustainability requires an awareness of how everything we do, everything we take, everything we make and everything we waste affects nature's balance, and how our actions will ultimately affect our children and the children of all species.
