    I would like to talk to someone at your company to get information for an article for Singapore’s Child magazine. It is an education guide for parents with primary and preschool age children. I will be doing segments on the environment and I would like to highlight companies that are going green so that parents can see the importance for the world as well as see the trend in business, which will affect their children later on. Thank you

  3. In your summation of 2011, don’t leave out the importance of education in the business sectors to effect faster change. We have an environmental company in China and another in Canada who is using the catalog as a gateway for business development and is using the platform to introduce these concepts so when they approach their circle of influence they have a deeper understanding of the need for their services and green products. Our Sustainability Education Series on line course catalog is for organizations and their customer bases who are interested in these issues, worldwide, the first of its kind. It is of the highest quality design and it includes narration, graphics, and superior tests for knowledge. This link is to where we administer the courses for our clients.
