Ohhh, how many press releases clog my daily in-box but two jumped out of cyberspace, prompting a "Wow! How can I learn to be more high level like these companies making a positive difference in the world?"
How often do you say that about a company?
It's clean up season, making an impact
United by Blue is a clothing company whose mission is to clean up the world's waterways. They remove one pound of trash from an ocean or waterway for every product sold. So far the company claims to have pulled almost a quarter million pounds of trash out of the water in the past five years. They do the hard work themselves! United by Blue is sold in over 400 outlets nationally and they have 3 brick and mortar stores.
Toward a balanced wild planet
Wild Planet catches and cans tuna fish in a sustainable way, using pole and troll fishing methods, which minimize bycatches, catching non-target species. As a result, Greenpeace recently endorsed Wild Planet as the #1 tuna brand for sustainability. Wild Planet is challenging the big three tuna brands to switch to sustainable fishing methods.

If all companies operated like United by Blue and Wild Planet Foods seeking ways to do better and make a hands-on difference in the world, wow, I believe the world can be a better place.
