There are more than 7.5 billion people in the world, and human beings have a tendency to separate the animal/natural world from the human world, as if they were two separate things. But in reality, human beings are part of nature, and despite the technological advances that have allowed us to do great things, we are part of this ecosystem. Hence, we must remember to protect and take care of it.
Sustainability is more important than ever before especially, we, as major companies and global players, have to start making changes and rethink our operations. Therefore, the Women4Women magazine goes green. Not only, our newest and already 4th issue of the Fujifilm #Women4Women magazine is all about sustainability in our private and professional lives also the magazine itself is printed on recycled paper.
In the recent issue, women from all around the world share their story about how they got involved in a sustainable work, lifestyle or, why it is so important for them in general. All of these powerful women are already committed to protect the planet and share with us how we can turn our lives “green” with only a few simple daily gestures.
We need to stop being selfish and start to think about the exhausted and drained world and resources we will leave to our future generations. At that point it is no longer about our lives because most dramatic changes will not be visible to most of us and consequently, not affect the older generations.
It is now clearer than ever, that the incredible global sanitary crisis and the acceleration of natural disasters brought us all in front of our responsibilities and made clear that our health is inevitably bound up with the health of the eco-system.Mary Valsama
Reduction of waste, renewable energies, waste water handling, less overconsumption and many more factors are important to take into consideration. However, not we as individuals are able to change and safe the planet on our own. Companies and corporations are playing a major role in this process as well. Businesses need to adapt the way they use and reuse resources and have to decrease their environmental footprint drastically.
This magazine aims to support and empower women in the business world, but especially the 4th issue also raises awareness concerning an inevitable issue for everyone. Climate change and sustainability in all areas of life matter to ALL OF US!
