Inflection Point 17: Concious Capitalism Pt. 1 - Susan Griffin Black

CEO and Founder of EO Products
Susan Griffin-Black

It seems like running a business and respecting the environment are at odds. Is it possible to do good for the planet and have a successful business? 

In this episode, we speak with two women who are mindful of both the environment and their bottom line. In part 1, meet Susan Griffin-Black, the founder and co-CEO of EO Products, a trailblazer in the mainstreaming of natural and organic body care products.

In part 2 we meet Claire Herminjard, a Forbes "30 under 30", and the founder of Mindful Meats, who left a career in tech to address the problems she saw with Factory Farmed meat. Capitalism with a conscience. That's our inflection point.
