Sustainability is a Choice: Continuous Technology Innovation

Sep 25, 2012 2:30 PM ET

I want my son to grow up in a world that has everything I had and more. Gabriel is three years old right now, so he cannot choose what world he grows up to. You and I make that choice for him. That is why I try to promote actions to help the environment both at work, at home and in the community.

  • At work, I print only when I have no other choice and advocate printer conservation whenever possible.
  • After my car died, I replaced it with a plug-in hybrid that is advertised as getting 50 to 100 mpg. I get around 13 miles on pure electric (uses no gas for this), and then it switches to hybrid mode that gets around 50 mpg. For me, this is a perfect fit as that is about my round trip commute to work. I can recharge when I get home and then run any chores I have in the evening.
