Senior Heroes – Ingvar Kamprad
Recently, a statue of him was erected in his Swedish home town, and he was invited to cut the ribbon. It was reported that instead he untied it, folded it neatly and handed it to the mayor, telling him he could now use it again.
While we may think that he is tight-fisted, another way to look at it is how the previous generation lived while keeping their carbon footprint (even though the term was not even invented then!) low.
