How do you choose to go green in your own life?

I always choose glass containers over plastic ones, purchase food in glass jars instead of plastic packages, use my AC as little as possible, walk or bike when running errands and teach my little one to recycle. Plan to grow my own tomatoes and green peppers in my patio soon.

Guilty green pleasure?

Purchasing fresh organic food from the local farmer’s market.

Can you offer any encouraging words for those with a small sustainable business?

As a small business owner who has to be multi-task oriented and take care of many aspects of the work on her own, planning and determination are keys to success. It really helps a lot to plan your day, week, month and even a year ahead with an up to date To Do List. Put a timeframe to complete each item, start with the most important ones that you prioritize, and try your best to stick to the planned timelines. It almost follows the same pattern with exercising…first you push yourself hard to start and keep going, and then you become more and more motivated when you start to see results.
