As a designer, what would you consider to be your top 5 most sustainable practices?

Is this asking of what we as designers do or in general?

I definitely agree with the last post.

My partner and I have operated a relatively paperless (glance.net) virtual office (out of our home) for a numbers years. It has helped us keep overhead costs low. The current state of our environment and economy has strengthened our convictions.

'"Decrease client/vendor travel

Business acumen.. I had to look this one up. Wiki has several definitions listed, and not knowing what it means, my favorite definition listed would have to be:

'"Ram Charan, business consultant and speaker, is one of the outspoken voices attempting to define business acumen. He describes it as the art of “linking an insightful assessment of the external business landscape with the keen awareness of how money can be made — and then executing the strategy to deliver the desired results.”[1]
