A couple weeks ago my team exhibited at the largest green home show in California, West Coast Green in San Jose. It was a great show with around 400 exhibitors who represent environmental innovation. Despite what was happening simultaneously on Wall Street, it was really nice to see so many people and organizations committed to creating a better environment. From homeowners interested in learning how to green their homes to industry professionals who want to lead the way in environmental building innovations, it was a really positive turnout.
I enjoy meeting homeowners and professionals who want to know more about deconstruction because many are surprised to find out that there are comprehensive, user friendly solutions available now that benefit homeowners and charitable non-profits. We are thrilled by the response we get at these shows. People really do care about the environment and they want to do their part to make a difference.
I think the most positive thing I took away from the show was the fact that people are moving forward despite the economic challenges we face. It’s nice to see that our commitment to the environment is for real. If we stay the course, I believe the government will create more incentives for green industries and together we can really make a difference.
