Our Value Drivers
A core value on which Green Earth LLC was founded is that each individual can make a difference is he/she cared enough and did something about it. The scope and scale of recent global calamities, both environmental and man-made such as: floods, drought, earthquakes, climate change, pollution, famine, food shortages, terrorism, war and economic collapse; to name a few, indicate that all things are connected. What happens in one corner of the Earth has a deep and lasting impact on living organisms that co-inhabit this planet: humans, animals, plants, birds, insects, marine life among others. We believe that the message is loud and clear: we just cannot afford to wait for 'others', be it national, state or local governments or large businesses, or international organizations such as the United Nations, etc, to do 'Big' things to save the planet. We believe that to create critical impact, each and every individual, each household, each small community group and organization can and have to get directly involved, by doing the small things- we call these Little Green Acts - that are low cost, simple, practical, repeatable, and also enjoyable and has high impact.
We believe in offering products and technology solutions that meet the following criteria: Easy to understand and use (practical use of technology); Earth-friendly (promotes sustainability); Economical (low cost); and Ethical (bring fair to all parties involved).
We believe that the desire to follow sustainable living practices is universal and not just limited to the Western world. Our research across several continents indicates that several Eastern cultures live and practice a low resource utilization lifestyle that is simple, sustainable and economical. One of our goals is to leverage technology and social media networks to enable the sharing of wisdom and best practices among a large number of individuals and organizations all over the world.
Thru our products, consulting services, and technology solutions, we are committed to keep social responsibility first place in our organization as well as help our clients do so in theirs. At Green Earth we do our part to make the world a better place by offering expertise, information, knowledge, and choices that follow high standards of sustainable practices. While we are aware that winning the sustainability battle is not an easy task, we do believe that if enough of us – individuals and organizations- join to put our shoulders to the wheel, we can give Earth a real chance.
