It’s Time to Take a Stand!


We recently took a stand here at Earthsite and decided to raise our desks.  That’s right!  We are now a standing office.  And it feels oh so good.  There have been a slew of articles coming out recently about the downsides of sitting all day.  

Below is an infographic by called Sitting is Killing You, that is worth checking out.  

Are you willing to take a stand too?  Leave us a comment.  We would love to know what you are doing in your office to address this.

Earthsite founder Joey Shepp, spoke at the Sustainable Enterprise Conference 2012 on Friday, May 11 in Rohnert Park, CA.  His presentation was titled: Sustainable Work – Stay Sane, Increase Productivity, and Live Longer in the Communication Age.  

The communication age has brought with it a host of problems for the human body: stress, anxiety, arthritis, back pain, heart failure and depression to name a few. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can live in grace with technology by reframing how we work. In this presentation you will learn how to manage your email inbox and social media to reduce anxiety and increase productivity. Discover new ways to work including standing desks, mobile offices and simple exercises that will increase your focus and help you accomplish important goals. Whether you work at home or from a cubical, this presentation will show you that how you work is as important as the work itself.

Communicating Sustainability Using Social Media


Companies today are able to engage in dialogue with their consumers through a variety of mediums, from traditional methods such as product packaging, to newer methods such as social media. However, according to a recent study by Carbon Trust, only a small percentage of consumers place confidence in companies’ sustainability claims. Additionally, hesitations in integrating social media into communications strategy still exist alongside a lack of understanding of how effective these tools can be. Our session today will examine how synergies between social media and communication strategy can have a tremendous impact by restoring consumer confidence, creating two-way dialogue, and promoting green practices. We investigate cost, return, strategy, transparency, and benchmarking for these communications campaigns, within the greater conversation of how this form of new media and globalization have compelled change in the corporate- consumer relationship.
