I'm so happy to hear this! Granted, I didn't know that shark fins were so widely shipped, but I'm happy UPS is listening to their customers!

Cc: +Jim Clifford because you are my UPS friend! 
Global logistics giant United Parcel Service is banning shipments of shark fin amid worldwide pressure from conservationists. ...

EcoValutazione ti permette di misurare scientificamente la sostenibilità ambientale degli spazi della tua attività. Il risultato è EcoScore, un punteggio da 1 a 10, basato sui consumi energetici, i materiali usati e/o venduti, lo smaltimento dei rifiuti, le emissioni legate alla logistica. 
La tua attività sarà visibile sul portale e potrai esporre il Certificato di eco-sostenibilità con l'EcoScore ottenuto, che riceverai al termine della EcoValutazione.
Quanto devo essere ecosostenibile per partecipare?
The GreenWatcher si rivolge a tutte le attività, non solo quelle espressamente green. Lo scopo è mostrare le azioni, anche quelle invisibili al pubblico, che ogni azienda già compie nell'ottica della ecosostenibilità.
Misura la sostenibilità della tua azienda. Promuovi il tuo business eco-sostenibile.

EcoAssessment allows you to scientifically measure the environmental sustainability of the spaces where you carry out your business. . This results in the EcoScore, a score from 1 to 10, based on energy consumption, materials used and/or sold, waste disposal, and the emissions linked to logistics.

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders give me hope that there are politicians actually fighting for the American People and NOT the corporations poisoning our society and that of many across the globe. The Elite top 0.1% in wealth and power will never stop their relentless pursuit for global dominance. They will never grow a conscious and feel remorse for who the "profit over people" philosophy has harmed millions of people and will continue to hurt all future generations if their power is not abolished. At one time, Royal Familes and Empires ruled the world. Slowly, Royal Monarchs lost power one by one until nearly all lost their grip on ruling the people. The Monarchies left are mere figure heads and lack the ability to enslave the masses for the sole benefit of the upper echelon. It has been done in the past repeatedly throughout history. Rulers come and go. They only have their power for as long as their "subjects" let them. Will we continue to let ourselves be used and abused? Or will we all stand up and demand total overhaul to create a just and peaceful society where all global citizens can live a life devoid of exploitation and corporate dominance? Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are standing up. I am standing up and shouting out to you all. Many organizations and millions of people are standing up also. Will you stand up with us? I urge you to stand up. Together, we can create a better future.


My goal and purpose is to inspire people to stand up, to demand a new social and political structure. There are many ways I can try to achieve my goal. One method is this: highlighting the individuals and organizations throughout the world who are also standing up for global change. With respect and gratitude, I effort commend them for their bravery and dedication to creating a socially just world. Their courage, perseverance, creativity, relentlessness and personal sacrifices inspire and motivate me. I hope they will have the same effect on my readers.

A deep and sincere "Thank you!" to the hundreds of people who have taken the time to read what I have written. It means so much to me.

My parting words for now are, "Will you stand up with us?"

"Could you name a sustainable initiative you were involved in over the last few years that stuck in your mind?"
You have 10 seconds to answer. Time out.
We asked ourselves this very question. And we found the following answers: collecting waste in a different way; travelling by bicycle instead of by car; using energy-saving lamps.
What is the point? Maybe, in order for it to work, sustainability needs to be engaging, simple and immediate. It could even be fun.

"Sapreste citare un'iniziativa sostenibile in cui siete stati coinvolti negli ultimi anni, e che vi è rimasta in mente?"
Avete 10 secondi per rispondere. Tempo scaduto.
Noi questa domanda ce la siamo fatta. E le uniche risposte che abbiamo trovato sono: fare la raccolta differenziata; andare in bici anzichè in macchina; usare lampadine a risparmio energetico.
Qual è il senso? Forse che per funzionare, la sostenibilità deve essere coinvolgente, semplice e immediata. E magari divertente.

An Example of Wasteful Packaging

A small Hawaiian Telecom phonebook in a giant plastic bag left on the driveway -- a stunning eco-dumb example of wasteful packaging where lobbying a corporation may help, would you agree?

An organizations true value should be evaluated not just by its financial value but also by the social and environmental effect that it creates. I came across this website of a cement manufacturing company whose approach towards sustainability is truly commendable. They are a part of the cement sustainability initiative that looks out for ways and means to inculcate sustainability in their production approach. They managed to reuse and recycle tremendous amounts of water and are hence known as a water positive cement manufacturing company. They have also drastically reduced the overall carbon emission.
Check out the following link to know more about their approach.
It can act as a real inspiration for many.

Is your web page sustainable?Pressure on internet companies to go renewable has been raised
- a status note -

For at least four years, Greenpeace has been raising public awareness and putting pressure on the world's largest data and cloud computing center providers to fuel their operations with clean, renewable power. In May, Greenpeace released its 2015 “Clicking Clean: A Guide to Building the Green Internet” report, in which it evaluates and ranks the likes of Akamai, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Apple, Google and Microsoft in terms of renewable energy investment, use and leadership.

Sto Rage... Designer Carbons Are Getting a Boost from Nanotechnology
- a status note -

A group of Stanford researchers have come up with a nanoscale “designer carbon” material that can be adjusted to make energy storage devices, solar panels, and potentially carbon capture systems more powerful and efficient. The designer carbon that has reached the market in recent years shares the Swiss-cheese-like structure of activated carbon, enhancing its ability to catalyze certain chemical reactions and store electrical charges; but it’s “designed” in the sense that the chemical composition of the material, and the size of the pores, can be manipulated to fit specific uses.
