Statement Regarding Sustainability
From my perspective, sustainability efforts and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a landscape that includes NGOs, thought leaders, collaborators, and action takers bound by specific goals. There is incredible opportunity now for widespread cross-sector sustainability practice standardization, especially with regard to leaders (individuals and their respective companies) taking action for sustainability efforts.
I view one of my roles as a lifestyle blogger who is committed to spreading information related to sustainability efforts is to stay atop of sustainability goals, programs, and global actors and sharing out the most germane information which will keep sustainability efforts top of mind. I firmly believe that sustainability practices can be integrated into the core of business models, and furthermore, I see a future where a commitment to these goals can be seen at an enormous scale. These are a few of the organizations, below, that I support and believe should continue receiving support in the future.
