Building Sustainable Small Business

On recently attending a workshop on sustainability in business i came to realise just how much impact our little business can have on the environment...in a positive and not so positive way.
The workshop was hosted by the Ethos Foundation. It was a series of three workshops and unfortunately i only made it to the last. It certainly inspired me and my direction of thinking with planning our cottages and so much that goes with that.
It also prompted all sorts of thinking in how things are handled here in our every day lives, reiterating the need to be a little or a lot ...LOL..more mindful.


I leave you with a very relative quote and a pic of some of my last roses as they prepare themselves for a little sleep.

~Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. ~ Mahatma Gandi

sounds interesting Deb. Mindful yes, its hard to always be so when faced with so very many convenience and/or less expensive options.

Hi Debra! Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my blog. I love your blog design-- the owl is so cute. I have a thing for owls. Beautiful roses, and the Gandhi quote really hits home.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is all new to me and I am having so much fun. Stacy Goldenbirdknits is a good friend of mine. I was pleased to read that you also are a lover of those precious dogwood trees. The blossoms are lovely and so are the leaves. The roses on you blog are so pretty. In high school, I did my senior paper on Gandhi. Have a nice evening. Dogwood.
