The LOHAS Forum in Boulder, Colorado

Greetings from Boulder, Colorado where I am attending the annual LOHAS Forum. The term "LOHAS" is actually an acronym for Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability; which is a market segment that is all about health, well being, fitness, the environment, personal development, sustainable living, and also social justice. The Forum is a three day business conference to share knowledge, ideas and practices with other professionals. The objective is to learn the best way to provide goods and services to consumers interested in health and sustainability. It attracts executives and experts from a broad cross-section of industry, commerce and technology. The highlight of yesterday was an address by Anthony Zolezzi, an entrepreneur/consultant/executive focused on sustainability and the development of the organic product segment. His presentation was standing room only, and spilled out into the foyer. It was an inspirational speech that had the attendees pumped up.

above: Yesterday I was interviewed by Melissa McGinnis, who was covering the conference for the website She was filming several TV segments for TV. I had a chance to share my personal views on the importance of sustainability efforts.

I also had a chance to discuss the progress my company has made to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The conference has been very interesting and a chance to learn a great deal as well. Go to to learn more.

Rick, you are so cool you get interviewed. Did they arrange it beforehand, knowing you had a stance, or was it a spur of the moment interview?
