Consumers benefit their wallets and the planet by shopping secondhand first. If one in 100 American households shopped resale, they could collectively save over $1.6 billion and 1.1 billion pounds of CO2 emissions annually. By cleaning out their closets, they also could generate $270 million in resale earnings every year, which is enough money to cover a year's food expenses for over 43,000 families.

Nearly 1 billion people on Earth lack access to safe drinking water, resulting in disease, the inability of many women to work and children to attend school, and contributing political instability such as the Syrian refugee crisis.

I really love this story. Greg Block wanted to combat homelessness. So he founded a non-profit staffing agency in Atlanta that works to find jobs for the homeless, who are mostly veterans, former convicts and recovering drug addicts. IT WORKS. Not only do people find long-term, sustainable employment that allows them to move into permanent housing, but also First Step is self-sustaining, having just purchased a huge for-profit staffing agency in Atlanta and looking to expand to other cities. A great example of how one person can effect societal change.

“Businesses hold most of the resources in the world, and I believe they have a responsibility to be part of the solution to many of the world’s most pressing challenges: poverty, hunger, climate change, etc. The state of the world demands that businesses step up to do their part.”

If only more top-level executives at big companies like Timberland felt the way that Atlanta McIlwraith does, our world would be in far better shape! My latest for +Forbes
