Sustainability isn't a trend anymore. It's basic business. It's the next great phase of economic evolution. And while many companies are cashing in on sustainable business trends, it's not enough to just talk green and look green. Businesses have to BE Green.

Like many business people, you may be intrigued by sustainability. You may be enticed by the savings offered by lean operations. You may want to know why your clients or customers are spending their money on green products and services. Maybe you want to save the planet. Maybe you plan to start small, and see where it goes from there.

Whatever compels you, the BE Green South Sound Blog will provide you with all the tools, information, free and low-costs resources, connections, and inspiration needed to propel your own sustainable business initiatives.

You'll learn what the heck a carbon footprint is, and how to manage it. You'll learn about transportation and energy-use alternatives that any business can use. You'll learn simple strategies that will save you money, sell products, be more productive, drive profits and, most importantly, contribute to a sustainable business future.

Whatever you're interested in learning or achieving, we're going to help you make sense of it all. Be Green. It's easier than you think.

January 31 at the Greater Tacoma Trade and Convention Center
