Green business champion Ray Anderson dies At 77 - Article
Renowned and much loved green business champion Ray Anderson died last week from cancer at the age of 77. Anderson founded the modular carpet company Interface in 1973, and credits reading Paul Hawken's The Ecology of Commerce in 1994, as a life changing experience. As he's said in his countless speeches after he became a "radical industrialist," reading that book drove a stake through his heart as he realized the role his company played in destroying our planet.
