Clean Health: Take a Deep Belly Breath

A Dose of Oxygen Will Make You Feel Happier

Do this anywhere, anytime. Push out your bellows and suck air through your nose until your lungs are full. They'll fill with nitric oxide, a chemical found in the back of your nose that opens up blood vessels. The dose of oxygen will make you feel happier and more alert. This is my secret technique for calming down before a show or a tough stitch in the OR.

Clean Earth: The New CEO

Environmental Performance at the Center of Your Working Culture

Green business means putting environmental performance at the center of your working culture, expressed through your company values, business objectives, performance measures, and management structure. If not made a core part of your company’s strategy, environmental goals can end up being tacked on to decisions after the financial and technical experts have had their day.

Leading corporations address this disconnect by appointing a chief environmental officer at the executive level, with authority equal to the chief financial officer, chief operations officer, or chief information officer. Any size business can profit from hiring an eco-leader. The point is not to create a green bureaucracy but to sharpen focus on implementation and show staff that sustainability is pivotal to business strategy.
