Whenever I do interviews with industry professionals, I like to ask them how they came to take up a career in the coatings world. It’s funny how different the answers are. Only recently, I met an ambitious young man at a coatings company supplying the graphic arts industry.
To think about how to spend the money we earned through our work is one of our first world problems. A lot of people in this world don’t even have enough money to buy things that satisfy the basics needs. I think, it is therefore an ethical necessity to act socially responsible. This could mean to look for the attribute "organic” or "bio” while you shop groceries. Sometimes we consider this ethical attitude and buy our food at a local market or directly at a nearby farmer. On other days we go to one of the huge chains or supermarket around the corner. That’s how we humans are, not always consistent but at sometimes we at least try to act politically and ethically correct.
