Lisa Borden

Eco Advocate and Strategist, Owner of Borden Communications

Lisa Borden, owner of Borden Communications, takes a unique approach to holistically marketing eco-intelligent living and working. Some of her favourite titles (from a long list) include: Catalyst for Change, Enthusiastic Philanthropist, Inspiration Agent, Strategist + Catalyst, Mother of 3 and Wannabe Organic Farmer.

Lisa looks forward everyday to challenging people’s thinking, and starting dialogues that will result in success, and us making this world a better place together.

Just Say No... To Fragrance

Does It Make Sense Or Is It Oxymoronic?

As much as I would love to spend a night in a yurt and eat off my own organic farm (preferably in a tropical location), I'm hardly an eco-hero, most of us aren't, even if we are making better choices and dedicating our time, work and efforts to caring and doing. BUT, there is a big difference between not being perfect, and being downright untruthful.
