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.

If you ask around, many would tell you that she Lisa has a big mouth. Many would tell you that she’s “real” and tells it like it is. Others will share that she is their most trusted advisor and ally. She’s self declared that she’s not “normal”, but few people who make lasting impressions are conventional. 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.

Fragrance Is The New Second-Hand

Fragrance Is The New Second-Hand Smoke

Being clean and smelling great should never mean using manufactured, toxic substances that you will inhale and absorb. If you insist on wearing a scent or scenting a space, please consider these ways to smell fresh while going fragrance-free.

Just Say No... To Fragrance

Being clean and smelling great should never mean using manufactured, toxic substances that you will inhale and absorb. We are conditioned to understand that littering is bad, and that pollution is toxic-- but using fragrance in your home, or workplace, or on your body is also polluting our shared air and world.

We Should Inspire And Empower Kids To Eat Healthily At School

We need to recognize and respond to the reality that many families need education, resources, and access! Shaming parents, shaming kids while at school, and banning or removing things does not encourage self-esteem or critical thinking -- and I'm pretty sure that is one of the reasons we send our kids to school!

A Checklist To Help You Have A Healthy And Efficient

A Checklist To Help You Have A Healthy And Efficient Workday

This is a checklist for myself as much as it's for you. Although much of it applies to everyone, especially those who work at a desk, if you are an entrepreneur and work intensely, you likely need signs, signals, alarms and life forces to interrupt your work flow in order to take care of yourself.

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.

Don't Believe All The Buzz Around Honey Nut Cheerios

This week, there has been a flurry of coverage over General Mills' decision to remove Buzz the cartoon bee from boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios -- for a limited time -- while they help find a solution to unstable bee populations. This campaign is uninformed (at best) and (at worst) is blatantly misleading to consumers. Here's what we need to consider before applauding General Mills.

How To Survive And Thrive At Trade Shows

Both working and attending a trade show can be an incredible way to connect with like-minded people and brands, and to create new partnerships and opportunities. I have attended my fair share of conferences and shows, on my own, and with clients, and understand how much there is to do, see, and accomplish in a short amount of time.

Take Action Against Toxic Turf

The introduction and popularity of artificial, toxic turf in playing fields and playgrounds throughout Toronto (and well beyond), is shocking, terrifying, and absolutely something we should ALL be outraged about -- and taking action on, now.

Be A Conscious Consumer Over The Holidays

On Black Friday, we are all encouraged to over-consume. This intense promotion continues right through the holidays (and then there are clearance specials, Boxing Day promotions and New Year kick-off deals). But what happens if we stop, think and don't react impulsively? What do we really need?
