Sustainability is a subject on the minds of many people, but it’s not something that is typically a priority for most small business owners. Inundated with the never-ending tasks that exist in simply running a business, the small business owner might make efforts to be more ‘green’ in their operation, but creating a fully sustainable business model might seem completely out of reach.
At a recent Wix and Infusionsoft Small Business Breakfast, Leyla Acaroglu – designer, social scientist, sustainability provocateur, entrepreneur and renowned TED speaker (Paper beats plastic? How to rethink environmental folklore) – shared her message on the importance of sustainability. During the talk she helped to answer:
- What is sustainability
- Why sustainability is important
- How business, large and small, can create a sustainable business model
