2013 New Year resolutions… That’s how we roll


We have entered the new year. The coming of 2013 coincided with the fact that we were waiting for Green America to deliver us the Gold Standard we had applied for. Suffice to say that we did not get it because we just lacked a bit of maturity and stability to obtain it. Fair enough. So we took the opportunity to assess how we were doing as a company, as a team, as colleagues, as friends.

VavaVida’s 2012 assessment


We are truly blessed. This whirlwind of a project we started went from a discussion over a couple of pints to full fledged functioning enterprise dedicated to changing the world. We love what we do and want to do even more. We have grand ambitions and even larger dreams.

Changing the world, even at our very humble level, is a loooooot of stinking work. We have so much more to do, so many more people to contact, inform and educate about VavaVida and/or fair trade.

Needless to say we were disappointed but not deterred that Green America (an entity we have great respect for) did not approve us for a gold level
Green Business. Actually, it helped us figure out what areas on which we could do a bit of work. It gave us something to strive for, a goal. It also made us thankful to already have a Green America Silver Standard.

We thought we could give you guys something to strive for as well in 2013. It’s easy, it demands almost no work and as little money as you want to invest in it. Doesn’t that sound great?

What are your resolutions this year? Share them with us…
