Ten years ago, fourteen business owners in Portland, Oregon did just that.

Along the way, all fourteen developed A Passion for Sustainability. Join these inspiring pioneers as they describe the journeys they have taken, the challenges and unexpected rewards they have experienced and their ultimate vision of a sustainable world. Prepare to be inspired, motivated and energized to begin your own journey and find your own Passion For Sustainability.
