Green business has seen steady growth since 2003, even during the recession, according to a survey by “Big Green Opportunity.” Join Terracycle founder Tom Szaky and award-winning journalist Brad Edmondson to discuss the unique business of being green.

In this webinar we’ll discuss:
• Staying true to business values and mission statements with growth
• The opportunities and risks of partnering with other/bigger businesses
• Avoiding “greenwashing” while maintaining success in an increasingly competitive market.
