American Latinos have a historical and cultural bias to conserve and reuse resources. It’s no wonder that today Latinos are at the forefront of many sustainable initiatives. Unfortunately, the average American employee and the mainstream American media have absolutely no idea of these innovations, contributions and opportunities. It’s time to change the conversation. You will read about:
- Industry transformations and success stories of sustainable businesses
- Who is creating long-term solutions for our new sustainable, green economy
- Specific higher education pathways and professional career journeys that led to entrepreneurship
- How Latinos are applying their hard work, talent, education, innovative thinking, culturally-engrained environmental advocacy, and creative spirit to improve America for all Americans
