“The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost, for none now live who remember it.” — Galadriel
“Whatever we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone else, if even in the tiniest way. Why, when a housefly flaps his wings, a breeze goes round the world; when a speck of dust falls to the ground, the entire planet weighs a little more; and when you stamp your foot, the earth moves slightly off its course. Whenever you laugh, gladness spreads like the ripples in a pond; and whenever you're sad, no one anywhere can be really happy. And it’s much the same thing with knowledge, for whenever you learn something new, the whole world becomes that much richer.” — Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

“To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.” — Wendell Berry
“Going green” is not a political or fashion issue; it is a corporate and civic responsibility. The term “sustainable development” means a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs, while preserving the environment for future generations. Every corporate entity should be focused on how to reduce its environmental footprint.
