Rami Vagal of Mohawk Industries discusses the importance of handprints: “One of the beautiful things about hand printing is that you have to think about the ripple effect that it can generate.” 

She explains the difference between handprints and footprints, emphasizing that handprints focus on the net positive environmental impact that an individual is creating; while a footprint focuses on what harm is being done and how to reduce that harm.
