Why Teal Green?
“Green” is the most overused, abused and watered down color there is at the moment (well, except maybe the color pink – but that’s a subject for a complete post). It means everything and nothing. Teal Green is about recapturing the spirit of remembering that everything is connected and if we don’t take care of each other and the planet we live on, everything else we do is pretty pointless. But it is also about doing it in a way that appeals to people, rather than punishing them. It’s OK to enjoy life, it just might be a good idea to be mindful of the life you’re enjoying.
