inc magazine cover boy "graham hill" treehugger "virtual office"

Simmer down ladies (and eco-minded entrepreneurs): coverboy Graham Hill, founder of Treehugger (the world’s largest green media company), is on the cover of Inc. magazine. Why?

Via Treehugger:

As Graham told Inc.:

“There’s a lot of pressure to have an office, but if you can trust your employees and if you don’t have a lot of physical stuff like prototypes, then it’s a great model. You’re going to save a bunch of money on real estate, and it’s going to be good for the environment, because you’re not commuting, and you’re not using an office.”

Graham’s got a green, practical and modern (remind you of TH?) idea to teach us something about: How to Run a Virtual Company. I just participated in an Inc.-hosted live video chat on with a beardy, wetsuit-wearing Graham—he was  generous, as always, with tips on vonage, skype, paying employees via paypal, the eco-$avings of running such a company (no commutes, fewer plane tickets, no office).

    Yet his parent company has given a show to Sarah Palin and is stripping down eco programming on Planet Green.

    Focus on the positive !.If Graham Hill is able to influence ten people who influence ten people who influence ten people then steps are being taken in the right direction.Graham only has a certain amount of control and is doing his best to spread awareness of going green.
    There is only so much one person can do and Graham Hill is trying,pushing and doing whatever he can with the tools he has.Great job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Graham Hill keep it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
    Barbara do you have any suggestions on what else he might be able to do to improve upon
    which he does have controle over?(not what he doesn't…ie,his parent company)?

    Graham Hill' s mission/ goal was to bring green mainstream and from this angle and from the amount of evidence (action on treehugger) I feel He has accomplished this.
