Most of us recognize that change can be unsettling.  It can be scary, and too often it is just easier to slip back into a traditional and comfortable way of doing things.  However, implementing effective sustainable change does not have to be a laboring process. 

All too often, we turn our attention to the barriers and roadblocks to the incorporating sustainability concepts into our businesses and personal lives.  There is a tendency to take too broad of a view of the concept of sustainability and become overwhelmed by its magnitude and our ability to make change.  Instead, we need to focus on the benefits we are individually trying to achieve from a specific change. 
As a sustainability consultant working with businesses and individuals, we encourage clients to be aware that sustainable change can be easily integrated into daily living when it is realistic, achievable and beneficial.  In a recent post, we discussed the following initial questions to facilitate change in a sustainability plan. 

•    What is it that you are looking to achieve?

•    Is the desired outcome within your control?

•    What will be the personal benefits resulting from the change?

Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
