Welcome! I created this blog after searching on google for lawyers who work with businesses and organizations that are creating a future for the planet -- an economy that is renewable, sustainable and green. Amazingly, even though there are lawyers marketing themselves in almost every business sector, there are virtually none devoted to working in this area. This seems suprising, given the increasing number of green businesses, green marketers and green energy sources. Obviously, there are many socially conscious lawyers, but are all of the "green" lawyers working for non-profits or for governmental agenies?
If our planet has a future -- if economy is going to mean "management of our household" as it did in the Greek (oikonomos) -- then don't green, sustainable and renewable businesses need to succeed? And don't we need green, sustainable and renewable lawyers to help facilite the legal, regulatory, governmental hurdles that these businesses will face?
