Very sad news today. Ray Anderson, a pioneer in the sustainability movement passed away. Ray was the founder of Interface the company that created the carpet FLOR tiles from recycled materials and proved that you could be profitable and sustainable at the same time.
My girlfriend had the opportunity to interview him a few years ago. She was able to get his input on a project that she was working on and came away profoundly affected by his words and actions.
Michelle Kaufmann did a nice write-up of many of the other things Ray worked on. Please check it out here.
