A Quote by Yvon Chouinard on business, responsibility, and sustainability

"Who are businesses really responsible to? Their customers? Shareholders? Employees? We would argue that it's none of the above. Fundamentally,businesses are responsible to their resource base. Without a healthy environment there are no shareholders, no employees, no customers and no business. "

A Quote by :franc on zaadz, community, inspiration, sustainability, and social network

We want to be part of people’s lives. People who want to live a life of health and sustainability. We want our members to learn from each other. We want our members to have various opinions. We want debate. We want encouragement. We want community.

We are not here to provide a platform for meaninglessness. We want people to come here for inspiration.

A Quote by David Arkin on architecture, sustainability, and future

We firmly believe that in order for a building to be sustainable, it must be loved; it must touch the soul. People—not just the current owners, but future generations—must find enough value in a building to continue to occupy and maintain it. Some of this is aesthetic, some performance, some economics. The Roman architect Vitruvius told us that buildings must have "Firmness, Commodity and Delight". True today more than ever.
