Our parents said it best: “Do well, and do good.” While we’re slaving away at our desks, tethered to our jobs for at least eight hours a day, we can lessen our negative impact on the earth as we strive to do something positive at work.

In fact, the sustainability movement is picking up speed so rapidly, it likely stands to eclipse the traditional devil-may-care contemporaries who haven’t quite caught up with the times yet. In the true spirit of classic sportsmanship, the best and most thoughtful achievers pull ahead while those who just try to skate by… get left behind.
