As Emma Approved enters a new era of bettering the world, I invited Jane Fairfax, our newest employee and social activist extraordinaire, to write a blog post on how we can get started right in our own offices. And as we’re all finding out around here, Jane has plenty of bright ideas. Enjoy!
Throwing an eco-friendly party doesn’t mean it has to be for an environmental cause or have a nature theme. It just means when planning, keep in mind how the choices you make affect the planet.
