The Lazy Environmentalist Rules

Josh is a great guy who is fostering a pragmatic and insightful approach to green living based on the notion that in order for green to become mainstream, it has to be something regular folks can get on board with.

Greenbuild 2007 -- An Aside

Hey all:

We were fortunate enough to attend Greenbuild 2007, the world's largest green building convention. After making the trip up to Chicago, we quickly made friends with some like-minded green folks and were treated to some excellent hospitality, Portland style, at the PDX Lounge.

The exhibit hall was quite a scene and we learned a lot while making great connections. The glut of new green technology was nothing short of amazing, and it was wild to see over 20,000 strong supporting the cause at the McCormick Center.

We received a lot of positive feedback for getting the first LEED Platinum home in the Midwest, and really enjoyed talking to people from around the world who are bringing green building to the forefront.

Standing in the middle of that ocean of people, one could really get the sense that the "green revolution" was reaching the mainstream. Got to keep spreading the word...
