The Willing Wall

Posted by Josie | May 11th, 2009 | Filed under Uncategorized

We had an Earth Day gathering a couple weeks ago and introduced what we call the “Willing Wall.” We asked our friends to answer a question; What are you willing to do to that will create positive change? Turns out, there is a direct relationship between what people are willing to do and how much organic vodka they consume. Here are a few of the PG-13 pledges for positive change:


I will do more local travel.

I will always use biodegradable doggie bags.

I will stop showering alone.

I will join a CSA.

I will drink more organic beer.

I will not take tissue paper when I shop.

I will release less methane.

I will plant some trees.

While these aren’t necessarily new mind blowing ideas, I like having the Willing Wall here in the office. It’s a nice visual connection between our small changes and the bigger community of people working toward the same goal and having fun along the way.

So the question is; what are YOU willing to do to create positive change this year?

    I will give gifts wrapped in re-usable cloth bags instead of wrapping paper.
