Biota Has Much to Teach Business

Ethical Markets is owned by Hazel Henderson, a world authority on green commerce and sustainable business.
What if you had millennium to solve the world’s problems? What about just your own: structuring you company’s growth, designing new products? Without harming the environment or limiting resources for future generations?
As conscious entrepreneurs, we don’t have a thousand years but rather need results As Soon As Possible.
Nature has done much of the work for us, experimenting for 3.8 billion years to design the best products and systems.
Mangroves manage desalination.
- Fewer trees are toppled during storms than homes or buildings.
- What can the Live Oak teach us?
By adapting Life’s Principles developed by Biomimicry 3.8, businesses as diverse as NASA and Nike improved design, processes and the bottom line – without damaging the environment. Ethical Markets Media in St. Augustine is using biomimicry to transform finance! Check out:
AskNature.org to see what we’ve learned from dolphins, philodendrons and termites!
- Biomimicry Institute for case studies, research and educational programs
- Biomimicry 3.8 to see the companies taking advantage of Biomimicry
Nature works as a community, so what can we learn from a particular region? In Florida, for example:
Geckos – how to blend into the landscape
- Sabal palms – rebounding from fire
- Wetlands – filtering water
Can your business benefit? Absolutely – anything from manufacturing, fishing, construction to even managing seasonal influx of snowbirds!
Florida is privileged to host an Exclusive Backyard Biomimicry Workshop to help you take the first steps to distill and apply Nature’s lessons.
The 3-day St. Augustine Biomimicry Workshop is led by certified Biomimicry instructors and includes on the 2nd and 3rd days a kayak and nature hike to see nature’s designs at work and apply them to a team project. The workshop runs from Sept. 27-29. For best value, early bird registration is $190 for only the first day and $585 for all 3 days. After August 24, rates increase to $230 and $690 respectively.
