Whitney commented on Best Places To Work

What I like best about this is that the employees at your company get excited about applying for this award and aren't just hoping to be recognized! I can see why it would be great for internal morale but must also encourage a culture seeking to find socially responsible opportunities. With visibility and the right incentives, I can see this type of program working well for both company and customer.

Whitney commented on B Corp

Agree that B Corps certification is fantastic! I had seen this program previously, and if given more widespread awareness, I think it would definitely encourage more businesses to get on board and also set standards that could re-frame how people view businesses that participate (or don't participate).

Whitney commented on The Sharing Economy

Reminds me of a great book called "What's Mine is Ours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption" (http://collaborativeconsumption.com/) and the idea that sharing talents and resources is not only friendlier for the environment but friendlier for the world and sense of community.

This book is what inspired me to join http://Couchsurfing.org, and belonging has been an AMAZING experience! I've stayed with and met some incredible people, making some global connections that I wouldn't otherwise have made just staying in a hotel by myself.
