Green Marketing Blog
January 07, 2013 by Jacquelyn Ottman
I am excited to announce our new consumer-focused blog and website. In beta test since June, it’s called WeHatetoWaste.com and we’re officially launching it this week.
In line with our mission at J. Ottman Consulting, to help businesses meet consumer needs sustainably, our goal with WeHatetoWaste.com is to ignite a movement and galvanize a community of ardent ‘Waste Watchers’. You know them. They are the ones who get those last extra swipes from the Secret antiperspirant, line dry their jeans according to Levi’s Care Instructions for the Planet, and even shower with a ‘ShowerBuddy’ to save water and energy.
These waste-hating consumers recognize the critical need to optimize resources so we can cut down on waste and pollution. They relish the opportunity to share with others their ingenious strategies for living lighter and getting the most from the products they buy.
Born to Hate Waste
WeHatetoWaste.com springs from my own personal passion, eradicating waste. It manifested itself at age four when I started to drag home treasures from the neighbor’s trash — and took flack from siblings who called me ‘Junkie Jacquie’.
WeHatetoWaste.com will highlight my own stories of leading a waste-less life, along with those of a passionate and growing community of ‘WasteWatchers’. The collective wisdom and output of this new forum will help us assist our clients in developing and marketing high value products that use the fewest resources while helping their consumers to save time, money, space — and live better.
Don’t Waste Another Minute —Please visit WeHatetoWaste.com and take a look!
