After a successful career in sports marketing communications and advertising sales, Lew Blaustein became passionate about the environment and climate change as a patriotic reaction to the 9/11 attacks.
A successful solo eco-preneur career soon followed with the opening of LBS Green Solutions in 2005. Since then, Blaustein has helped build a myriad of green-focused businesses and non-profits through strategically powerful marketing, communications, and business development programs.
GreenSportsBlog (http://greensportsblog.com), which Blaustein launched in 2013, has become “the source for news and commentary at the intersection of Green + Sports.” Its monthly audience of up to 8,000 includes commissioners, team and league executives, sustainability leaders, eco-athletes and more. GreenBiz, Sustainable Brands and others syndicate GSB content.
Blaustein was trained by Al Gore and his Climate Reality Project team in 2012. Since then, he has given the slide show that was at the heart of An Inconvenient Truth to 35+ schools, religious groups, businesses and more. He also volunteers with Citizens’ Climate Lobby, lobbying members of the US House and Senate on behalf of the “Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019,” the first bipartisan carbon pricing bill ever introduced.
