More thoughts on products....
If you have the time, have a listen to this interview with Yvon Chounaird who's the founder of Patagonia - one of the greenest companies around.

' We grow by letting the customer tell us....
We let the customer tell us instead of creating an artificial demand for our products. Any time you're making products that people don't need, you're at the mercy of the economy, you're at the mercy of whatever is going on. So we tried to avoid that situation.'
