2.1 Designer: Ecological Artist

 

 

ANALIA BORDENAVE

"I LOVE NATURE AND ART IS MY PASSION.  

In response to the devastation of the planet I decided to get out of my art studio, set aside canvas, acrylic, others traditional materials and take the elements of nature to make art. 

Aware that human consumption is already greater than the capacity of nature to renew these resources. Those responsible for this situation - the society, companies and urban - follow so no spaces can adapt with speed to changes that themselves generate in its ecosystem.

Green Marketing Analisis

 

 

 

Sustainability, the Green Industry in 2015, and You.

Going green is becoming increasingly attractive as a business strategy. As headlines scream of pollution and dwindling natural resources, green industry practices not only enjoy benevolent public sentiment and the psychic income of a lower carbon footprint, but increased cost savings, supportive government policies, and ever-increasing profitability as well. Trends in consumption, government policy, and costs all point towards even more green industry business opportunities in the years ahead.

 

What Does the Green Industry do?

The green industry focuses on making a profit while having a negligible (or even a beneficial) impact on the environment. Leaders make sustainability a key consideration in decision-making throughout the organization as they work to minimize both use and production of harmful chemicals, excess materials, and waste byproducts in the delivery of their goods and services. Recognizing the importance of our planet’s dwindling natural resources, the green industry seeks to meet the demands of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow.

 

Interesting Green Industry Business Trends.

In our increasingly connected world, consumers are becoming better educated about the dangers of a growing population competing over rapidly depleting natural resources, and many are looking for ways to lessen their impact on our environment.

Though the scientific cause and effect of many environmental issues remains debated by some, what is undeniable is a growing consumer interest in environmentally friendly business practices and products. A poll conducted by Time Magazine found that almost 50% of Americans valued environmental protection over economic growth, more than 60% had purchased organic produce within the previous year, and nearly 40% made purchases based on the social or political values of the producing company; even more striking is that this survey measured sentiment after the economic crisis had struck. Organic food consumption is still a very small part of the food market, but the segment is growing at an estimated 20% annually: from a $23 billion market in 2002, global organic food sales had more than doubled to $52 billion by 2008. Clearly, consumers care more now than ever about green industry and have the resources to find the products that meet their requirements.

And companies are noticing! From huge multinational companies and local businesses to the meaningful growth in green franchise opportunities, the green movement is in full swing and reaping benefits. And the trend is not driven by customer interest alone, as sustainable business practices help companies save money over time: PricewaterhouseCoopers indicates that companies reporting sustainability efforts have a greater return on assets than companies that do not. It may cost more to install solar panels but monthly savings on energy bills add up fast. Increasingly, businesses are looking to enhance their operating efficiency through sustainability efforts, and opportunities in the sector will continue to abound for years to come.
