As the late afternoon sunshine glare bounces off your computer screen, imagine you’ve traded in your keyboard for a trowel and your monitor for topsoil.
Maybe you can. Some innovative companies have discovered the calming benefits of letting their employees to tend the fields while on the clock. Gardening encourages team building, helps them de-stress, and even helps them engage in some light physical activity.

Leveraging the Strengths of Social Enterprises Through Innovative Business Relationships
The unbridled accumulation of single-use, post-consumer plastic bottles represents a social and environmental crisis affecting populations and landscapes the world over. While industrialized countries have evolved systems and customs that effectively displace this waste stream, the problem is glaringly evident in less-industrialized countries, ill-equipped to control the flow. Yet strategies to manage Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) plastic have led to surprising new markets.
