(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Marketing has gone through some major changes in recent years, driven by consumer expectations about how businesses should behave. It’s no longer about getting people to like your products, it’s about getting them to love your entire company. The days of brand image where you could say one thing and do another are over. The job for companies now is to build brands that people can really believe in and want. People want to see evidence of a brand committing to a purpose, not just carrying off a one-off-stunt. And if a brand is supporting a particular purpose, they should be in it for the long term. This is called brand purpose.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – What’s the difference between an arranged and a forced marriage? Well, the difference is based on consent and coercion. In an arranged marriage, both the bride and the groom consent to have their marriage arranged (with varying degrees of choice about when and whom to wed). In a forced marriage, one or both of them is coerced into the marriage and there’s no free, informed consent. There’s a fine line between consent and coercion, as even when a marriage is labeled “arranged” and the bride and groom get the option to say no, they may face...

It would not only mean that the world would avoid dangerous global warming, but also prevent millions of premature deaths annually and create about 24 million more jobs than would be lost. Rooftop solar panels and major solar power plants; offshore and...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – At the time of writing this story, Hurricane Harvey is hitting Texas with severe weather; it’s the first major hurricane to hit Texas in nine years and has been devastating—"an unprecedented" weather event. The storm puts the work of the Texas Trees Foundation into context, which has released findings from the 2017 Dallas Urban Heat Island Effect report, as a wake-up call for Dallas and North Texas. The yearlong study concludes that, “Cities do not cause heat waves – they amplify them, as human activities on climate at city...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Saudi Arabia is a fairly new country, so it would be obvious that its environmental standards lag behind those the Western world. However, the Kingdom is working hard to catch up. It recognises that it needs to train and engage its small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) to have a better understanding about sustainability and its practices.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Dating app Tinder has asked its users last month to stop using selfies with tigers on their profiles. “It’s time for the tiger selfies to go,” the company wrote in a blogpost. More often than not, these photos take advantage of beautiful creatures that have been torn from their natural environment. Wild animals deserve to live in the wild.” 

As an incentive, Tinder promised to donate $10,000 to Project Cat for International Tiger Day in July. The site also gave users suggestions of how to show their...
