Hemp and Company
Summary: The reason for this education program is to engage the larger community on a level that responds to urgent requests for businesses to develop deeper, more responsible practices. Recognizing that â€˜old-fashionedâ€™ capitalism likely accounts for accentuating problems of environmental degradation requires re-imagining how environmental stewardship and business can be perceived as not mutually exclusive. Hemp & Company is searching for equilibrium between profit and responsibility by asking, if the profit motive has been instrumental in harming the environment, can it be used to restore the environment? Education for sustainability, from both a business and an environmental health perspective, is seen as a link that resolves perceived tension between conflicting ideas.
