"What's a Green Coffee?"

o2 Michigan is a proud participant in the international movement toward
the creation of places, environments and products that support humane and
ecologically sustainable* lifestyles. We strongly believe that
environmental and social impacts must be integrated with traditionally
respected design considerations (including economic, aesthetic and
functional). o2 Michigan is a network, meeting point, and clearing house
created to support the thoughtful conceptualization, innovative
development, and practical solutions to sustainability issues.

*"sustainable" here, based on commonly held definitions of "sustainable
development", means to act in a way that will not destroy natural systems
that species (human or non-human) directly or indirectly depend on for
survival now and in the future. This orientation must also include fair
and equitable treatment of fellow human beings.
