...to use social media tools to help preserve Portugal's cork forests," noted Joao Ferreira, president of the Portuguese Cork Association (APCOR). "Preserving cork forests allow us to make products like wine stoppers that are great for the environment because they are 100 percent natural and recyclable."
H.E Cary Lee Peterson, Chairman of ECCO2 Global Partners comments, "There are over forty million people in the Caribbean alone. One fourth of these people live in Haiti where the unemployment ratio is above 40 percent according to global statistics. We are working to develop multilateral supply chains in the U S , West Africa, Brazil, the Asia-Pacific region, and Europe that offer efficient and sustainable methods to manufacture and distribute products that would usually not be economically viable to produce in the Western World due to logistics and cost of labor for certain parts of production."

That includes an eye to the future of his five-year-old twins, a boy and girl. "I want them to grow up in a healthy planet."
