Is Being Green A Trend?

Posted by Blake Nijs on September 16 at 8:00 AM Is being green a fad? Have we topped out our desire to make sustainable choices?  I fear the fad label we are seeing is because all the easy options to be green now are done, all that is left is the now are the hard meaningful choices.

Rainwater is an oft forgotten resource

Posted by Blake Nijs on July 15 at 3:00 PM  Rainwater is an often forgotten resource. Many buildings use sanitized city water to run their toilets and urinals. This may not sound very harmful to the environment however nearly one-third of water usage is used to flush waste. Granted there have been innovations such as low flow toilets, we are still flushing drinking water down the drains.  Topics: recycling, sustainability        9 Comments Read Full Post

Marine Recycling and Sustainability

Posted by Blake Nijs on June 3 at 1:30 AM Fiberglass has been used to construct the hulls of boats for many years.  Unfortunately the only way to disposing of these boats, was to drag them to the closest dump where they would only be left to pile up in our landfills.  Recently, Sandy Cove Marine of Ontario has developed a exciting new way to recycle these boats.

Architecture Innovations

Posted by Blake Nijs on May 27 at 2:30 PM Innovations today are seemingly endless.  You purchase a new phone and three days later is obsolete.  However, there is one area of technology that I feel is moving slower than the rest, architectural design for residential housing.  Since the 1950s it is there hasn’t been many substantial improvements in design, for the most part it appears to be at a standstill.  Isn’t it time for some new and more eco-friendly alternatives?

Social Media = Success for SocialCycling™ (@Social_Cycling)

Posted by Stacy Richter on December 2 at 5:00 AM
 I have become truly awakened to the power of Social Media and what it really means to businesses.  SocialCycling™ has really taken off as a result of the work of a great team at DMD Insight (@DMDInsight) and social media outlets like twitter.  I’ve had a little trouble buying into the concept of Social Media until now.

Are we Paperless or Clueless?

Posted by Jason Warnock on August 23 at 8:00 PM If I asked 10 modern office types about the idea of a “paperless” office and when, in their opinion, was the peak of our paper use in the office, what do you think they would guess? Surely the late 80’s? Perhaps any time in the not too distant past without email, all those letters being sent, memos, that must have used way more paper than now... Right? Or maybe the 60’s with the “Mad Men” style offices, four secretaries for every writer, all that typing and re-typing. Right?

Posted by Jason Warnock on February 13 at 12:00 PM As marketers our environmental efforts are often focused on the material and carbon contribution of our products or services.  There are numerous green rating systems out there that tell us what the total VOC content is or the post-consumer recycled content or even the carbon dioxide contribution based on transport and production.  Are we missing out on perhaps and even more important one, how can our materials affect and quite possibly improve the lives of people around the world?
