Leaf of the Day, No 66, Eco Pup

If you thought organic clothing was a challenging market to tackle, imagine selling organic clothing for dogs. I know my dog is constantly begging for a recycled collar or an organic t-shirt, but I never oblige him. Though if I did, Eco-Pup would be an option. The aforementioned recycled collar would come from recycled neck

Leaf of the Day, No. 65, Botanical Bakery

Apparently the world of shortbread cookies is a bit on the conservative side. Most of the brands are sophisticated, proper and overall, fancy. Who knew cookies were so aristocratic. There are those, however, that choose to defy that norm. Botanical Bakery gives its shortbread cookies, and the overall brand that serves them, a bold personality.

Leaf of the Day, No. 64, EcoBold

While reading Triple Pundit, I caught wind of Steffany Boldrini, the person behind EcoBold. Through EcoBold, Steffany creates an energetic discussion around green products through interviews, product reviews, testimonials and product discounts. Her effort reminds me somewhat of Gary Vaynerchuk’s Wine Library TV, albeit much more sedate and with an accent (she grew up in

Wish I’d thought of that: Robin of Shoreditch

The 100 Brands Project from Robin of Shoreditch on Vimeo. There are multiple variations on the Robin Hood story. My favorites involve animated foxes and dancing men in tights, but you may prefer the Kevin Costner/Russell Crowe versions. You and my mom both, hubba hubba. But allow me to add another Robin to the mix,

Leaf of the Day, No. 62, Heider Environmental Consulting

To the average person, navigating environmental rules, regulations and business practice can be like reading Shakespeare upside down and in Japanese. So the help of an environmental consultant like Heider could be quite useful. Heider claims expertise in permits, reports, compliance testing, planning and audits, although, those services seem just as ambiguous as the word

Leaf of the Day, No. 61, Starbucks Shared Planet

Starbucks has famously been demonized as one of the faces of “Big Bad Corporate America.” So, it would make sense for Starbucks to want to do everything imaginable to escape those ill-feelings. Much of the escape effort comes in the form of Starbucks Shared Planet, a commitment to people and planet and not just profit,
