As the summer comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to get lost in a book or twenty.
I wanted to share one with you because sharing is caring. And I care.
The book is all about re-thinking the production of sustainable products and their impact on the future.
I’m all for spreading awareness of causes close to my heart. Sustainability is one of them. I try to be mindful of what I’m using and how my decisions today affect the earth in the future.
By working together, we can make a difference for the environment.
As of right now, more and more people are embracing or employing sustainable products. Congratulations to those companies. Kudos to the many individuals.
This is an awesome read to end your summer off on the right note. Don’t forget once you finish reading it, you can always pass your copy along to a friend. Now that’s sustainability.
