"If you want to change the world, there’s nothing to it."
I believe Chipotle has a strong company culture around sustainability. After watching the video, please share your thoughts about Chipotle AND their company culture. What do YOU think?
“Food With Integrity is our commitment to finding the very best ingredients raised with respect for the animals, the environment and the farmers.” -Chipotle

Las Vegas is GREEN. Amazing but true.
I lived in Las Vegas for five years and never heard a word about sustainability in the 1990′s. However, I was always impressed and inspired with the innovative business practices of my employer, the Wynn properties (including Bellagio, The Mirage, Treasure Island and Golden Nuggets). I often wonder, if I still lived in Vegas, whether I’d be working for Zappos.com. Either way, it’s wonderful to know that even sin-city who thrives in lights, action and over-consumption is taking steps to ‘do good and do well.”
I am inspired to share this article I read this morning from Smart Planet, “Verde Las Vegas?” by Mary Catherine O’Connor. Ironically, I’m now in Las Vega$. Apropos. as we’ll be visiting the revamped downtown today.
Progress in Las Vegas
The following stats were excerpted from this inspiring Smart Planet article:
- Reduced its energy consumption by 22 percent since 2010.
- 8 percent of electricity comes from solar panels with plans to gain another 13 percent of energy from solar.
- Local government is prioritizing walkable communities.
- Waste oil from kitchens serving the nearly 40 million annual visitors is collected and used to help power city busses, running on biodiesel.
- Caesars has reduced its landfill contribution by 25 percent by managing their own recycling facilities.
- Water consumption has reduced about 40 percent since 1989, despite the city’s significant growth.
Looking forward to seeing more
Kudos to Las Vegas. Hoping they will inspire more cities to make positive changes for our future and prosperity for all.REGISTER FOR BLOG Read More »
Advertising at its’ best
Do you love smart humor as much as I do?
Natural vs. Organic
There is nothing natural about a “natural” labeled food. You may have bought these items thinking they were better for you and your loved ones. Sadly, that is not true.
