Why Sustainability Is Important

The term “sustainability” is more than just trendy word usage. There is a real purpose in applying principles and practices that have long-term positive effects on the local community and planet we inhabit. Sustainable practices are just that, they can be continued indefinitely. The goal is to minimize our negative impact on the ecosystems of this world while continuing to enjoy the brands we love by taking items that are routinely discarded and turning them into new products.

About Dr. Leotis Bloodworth

I’d like to express my best wishes to the sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity. I am Dr. Leotis Bloodworth Jr., President of ERM Solutions. While attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte football game, your fraternity was being recognized for its outstanding community service concerning breast cancer awareness. Because I am a health care professional as well as the grandson and grandson-in-law of inspirational women who passed away from breast cancer, I wanted to contribute to the philanthropic goals of your organization. Our company is committed to partnering with organizations that address critical issues such as breast cancer. Our pledge is to donate 40% of our net profits generated by Zeta Tau Alpha purchases to the Think Pink Foundation. Together we can uncover the cure for cancer. Zeta Tau Alpha, are you ready to purchase with a purpose?
