Murray Newlands has regular interviews on his blog and one question used to stand out to me that he asked was ‘What do you do that is green?’ which is a curious question to be asked on a blog that revolves around affiliate marketing and social media.
Its an interesting question in its own right. What is green? How do you define it? What are the trade-offs that you make? Water quality versus the ozone layer or carbon footprint versus feeding the developing world?
How would I answer that question?
I guess my answer is care in the consumption that I do make. I want items that I want to keep rather than being throwaway – the items have an intrinsic quality of their own rather than being made down to a cost. I like items that are user serviceable or can be sent back to the manufacturer to be serviced.
