Tara La Salla, Sustainability Expert
Tara is the co-owner of Going Green Tampa, which was established in 2010 with a mission to bring awareness to the surrounding Bay Area community about local eco-friendly businesses, events and sustainable living. Out of this need, the Going Green Tampa website was born and has since served as a one-stop online eco- directory full of businesses, events and educational resources that are both sustainable as well as local.
Most importantly, Going Green Tampa plays an active role in stimulating dialog among environmental and business leaders and the community. This in turn allows and promotes positive environmental change and opportunity for the Tampa Bay community.
Tara is also a business profitability consultant and specializes in helping companies lower their environmental impact, do good things for people and the planet and become more profitable at the same time. Tara helps companies create simple, sustainable solutions and become totally green while still increasing their profits.
Her core belief is that we only have one planet, so it is our obligation to start making changes for the sake of our health and the health of future generations. Tara is known for creating easy solutions for post-consumer waste and the conservation of natural resources. Her clients are inspired and empowered to lead the way to a healthier tomorrow.
Tara currently resides in St. Petersburg, FL where she is an active community leader in the form of environmental and marine conservation and education. Her work with the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Tampa Bay Watch and other local organizations continues to inspire those around her to protect our natural resources. She holds true to one of Mahatma Gandhi's most famous principles: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
