If you read this blog, it's likely that you have at least a modicum of care for the natural environment. Like some of you, I grew to love everything about nature through hiking and camping and various Boy Scout activities. So after being approached by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, I jumped at the chance to give away a couple copies of DisneyNature: Earth. Drop a comment below, and we'll randomly choose 2 people for the giveaway.* Earth was just released on DVD and Blu-ray, and it looks fascinating.
Harvard Business Press was kind enough to provide an advance copy of Green Recovery: Green Lean, Get Smart, and Emerge from the Downturn on Top, which was written by Andrew Winston, coauthor of Green to Gold. As you might imagine, the book is perfect for executives, managers, and business professionals looking for a way to juggle both environmental strategy and business profitability. Winston explains that investing in green strategy, if done properly, can save money quickly — therefore, it should be a core strategy of economic survival.
We're giving away a copy of this book to one commenter below, so make sure to comment with a valid email before midnight on Friday, July 24, 2009.*
Harvard Business Press was kind enough to provide a copy of Adam Werbach's much anticipated book called Strategy for Sustainability: A Business Manifesto, which is definitely worth grabbing. Werbach is a polarizing figure in the environmentalist world, and I guess you could say the debate centers upon his strategy to "work with rather than against large corporations." There are environmentalists that absolutely abhor corporations, but there are also environmentalists that try to change the world through corporations. Werbach aligns himself with the latter and provides his sustainable strategy for doing so in this new book.
