You may think that one individual can't make a difference, but it's not the case. Great job Mick spreading the sustainability message far and wide.
An interesting subject that I'm sure will be getting more and more attention in the future.
A resource for colleges
I love learning about how to really make an ecological difference. I've listened to 3 now and while one didn't apply to me and the sustainability projects I am working on they were fascinating to just learn about and see where the industry is going. This is for anyone who wants to understand how to build a better world. Thanks for taking the time to put this together Mick.
