Surfrider CEO Jim Moriarty discusses eco-friendly packaging in this green business speech. Moriarty says that environmentally friendly business methods appeal to stake holders, and ultimately that's who businesses answer to.
Moriarty uses Walmart as an example of a big company who is adopting greener packaging. He states that Walmart has been flat-packing some of their products, which saves on cost and cuts down on pollution from packaging. This is both a great business decision and an eco-friendly approach to packaging. Moriarty points out that when a giant company like Walmart starts to shift their business decisions in a greener direction, all businesses pay attention.
This short green business speech highlights ways in which eco-friendly changes can also be beneficial in terms of business. Going green makes stake holders happy and can potentially save large businesses money.
