    Letting Go of the Trapeze with Leaf & Limb's Basil Camu

    Letting Go of the Trapeze with Leaf & Limb's Basil Camu

    Imagine coming into a business, learning the ropes, fighting through challenges to establish a solid business model only to decide at the moment pretty much everything is clicking, that your number one revenue driver no longer fits your moral compass. 

    That’s what Basil Camu was faced with when he rose through the ranks of his family business Leaf & Limb. Basil’s father founded the company in the late ‘90s as a tree trimming and maintenance service in North Carolina. Father and son joined forces in 2010 and started a remarkable journey together that would transform the company and just might transform the industry. 

    There are sustainability journeys and then there is the family and team at Leaf & Limb, who are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the landscape industry.

    Open Hiring with Greyston's Joe Kenner

    This is one of those interviews that makes you question if and how you’ll ever do enough in your own life. Not in a depressing way, but in a way that makes you question what is possible. Joe Kenner is the CEO of Greyston Bakery and the non-profit entity that helps support its efforts. 

    Many of you, whether you realize it or not, have probably come across Greyston’s products. At least if you like ice cream. Their brownies appear in several of the most classic and popular Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors.

    We talk with Joe about Greyston’s fascinating origin story, the amazing brownies the bakery turns out each day to the tune of 40,000 pounds and what makes this operation so very unique. It’s one of those incredible stories that will restore your faith in humanity and make you wonder just what is possible when you hear the lengths Greyston goes to help its community and serve those in need by offering them employment, dignity and mobility.

    Making Images Accessible with Scribely's Caroline Desrosiers

    Making Images Accessible with Scribely's Caroline Desrosiers

    Caroline is an experienced digital marketer with a deep understanding of web accessibility, something near and dear to our hearts. She is soft spoken and deliberate. An outdoor enthusiast with an artist’s appreciation of the visual world and a desire to bring these visions to life for blind and low vision internet users. 

    And like most purpose driven entrepreneurs she has the ability to stay focused on growing her business and the greater good that growth affords. In the complex world of digital inclusion, hers seems like a simple solution on the surface but it’s harder to execute than it seems and is often overlooked. And as you’ll hear, Caroline’s approach to alt text is not just powerful, it can sometimes be beautiful.

    The Intersection of Recycling and Design with Gumdrop's Anna Bullus

    The Intersection of Recycling and Design with Gumdrop's Anna Bullus

    Some of the most inspiring innovations happen when curiosity seekers read the signs that are all around us. The things that most of us see and either don’t think twice about, or assume that they're simply too daunting to tackle. 

    Anna Bullus saw the signs everywhere. Those little white specks ground into the pavement and on sidewalks everywhere, or worse, maybe stuck to the bottom of your shoe: gum.

    Gumdrop was born when Anna Bullus wondered just how much gum was discarded and whether there was a way to give it a "second life." Not necessarily a question you might expect from someone who studied three dimensional design in college. 

    These are the Grow For Good™ stories we’ve come to cherish and we know you will too, when you hear Anna’s story and how she is creating a second life for one of the most universal products in the world.

    People, Planet and Profit with Meliora's Kate Jakubas

    People, Planet and Profit with Meliora's Kate Jakubas

    Kate Jakubas is an engineer at heart and by training—and she has the degrees to prove it. Armed with a bachelor's in material science engineering and a master's in environmental engineering and water management, Kate entered the workforce in areas that lined up nicely with her education. But, something nagged at her conscience. So she did what any good engineer would do. She learned yet another discipline and set about solving it. 

    The question that nagged at her was, "What exactly is in our cleaning products?" As she progressed in her career, the question never left the back of her mind; until she decided to pursue this with the rigor of an engineer and the spirit of an entrepreneur. 

    Born, raised and educated in Chicago, there was never a question that her journey into the corporate world as a business owner would take place here as well. Kate founded Meliora and shares her path of starting, running and now growing a people-friendly and planet-friendly line of cleaning solutions.

    Paving the Way for Women of Color with digitalundivided's Lauren Maillian

    Paving the Way for Women of Color with digitalundivided's Lauren Maillian

    In 2012 an organization called digitalundivided (DID) was founded with the mission of using innovation to create systemic change by catalyzing economic growth for Black and Latinx communities through women entrepreneurs. DID's various initiatives from technology, mentorship and community building have helped women of color recognize their visions and build upon their excellence to launch myriad companies. 

    This past year, board member Lauren Maillan was tapped as the new CEO of DID to bring her depth of experience as a brand marketer, public personality and entrepreneur to lead the company through the difficult days of COVID and beyond. 

    Lauren’s story is anything but typical. She’s a powerful force who sets an extreme example of what’s possible, lighting the path of progress for others to follow. Perhaps the most intriguing part of her story is how it all began as the youngest self-made winery owner in the country. Since then she hasn’t stopped building, iterating and creating for a second and now her mission is to bring her spirit and energy to hundreds of powerful and brilliant women of color to help them realize their dreams.
