I remember the first time I was called a tree-hugger. I didn’t know what that meant. I was in college and visiting a farm in Ocala, FL sitting under a tree with Spanish Moss and the person I was shadowing said that to me. I can’t remember what I shared with her at that time but I love to recycle, I often wish the recycling bin was the same size of the garbage can.
Tips from a webinar that made an impact for me
I learned so much from LinkedIn Marketing Solutions (hour and a half) webinar: Sustainability Forward: How Brands Engage. I’ll be sharing key takeaways below, really liked the info on keywords/hashtags/cheatsheet (see below)!
