Business:  Create Innovative Solutions

The business community needs to support and enrich people and the planet – not the other way around.

There’s a movement growing around the idea that businesses can be leaders in making positive change for the world.

It started with the idea of social responsibility and now has names like conscious capitalism and natural capitalism.

Many successful companies now reflect this fresh modern ethic – companies like Patagonia, Stonyfield Farm, Nature’s Path, Organic Valley, and Whole Foods.

John Mackey, CEO and cofounder of Whole Foods, is a firm believer in the power of business to change the world.

Mackey believes the idea that capitalism is evil and business is the bad guy comes from an outdated view of the world where everything is a “morality play.”

More than anything else, he believes we must believe we can create “positive solutions for the way the world can evolve.”

And when we don’t like something, we must “criticize by creating.”

While businesses – or, more accurately, the people who run them – have done some pretty bad things over the centuries, they’ve also done a lot of good.

We need to sort out what we want to keep and what works from what we don’t need anymore and what’s holding us back.

This is an exciting time for entrepreneurs – there are so many challenges in need of creative and innovative solutions.

It’s a great opportunity for inventors, investors, and idea people to find good things that work well and make them available to people on a wide scale.

That’s business at its best and most exciting.

If you happen to work for a chemical or biotech company, know you have the power to stop it from within.

You can learn and decide to do the right thing.

You can refuse to do the chemical company’s bidding.

If you’re a researcher at a university, you can refuse to take their money.

You can stand up for what’s right.

You can stop being part of an industry that’s destroying the species – including your own children.

You can use your skills, talents, expertise, and efforts to heal the planet.

It’s up to you.
