PERHAPS YOU heard about it, perhaps you didn’t.
But TROHGG team members Leanne Wood Newman of Flying Camel and Mike Clawsie of Clawsie Kitchens certainly did. And they were front and centre at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo held in Toronto recently.
Greenbuild, by the way, has forged a reputation in the past few years at as the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated solely to green building. And for the first time, the three-day annual event was held in Canada, this time around at the Air Canada Centre and Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The expo, celebrating “What’s NEXT” for green building, attracted thousands of building professionals with educational sessions, speakers, seminars and networking events.
Spun off the parent organization, The U.S. Green Building Council, which is a non-profit community of leaders working to “make green buildings available to everyone within a generation,” the conference definitely sparked a positive response from Wood Newman.
“I went to opening night and it was phenomenal,” she said. “Passionate speakers and an ACC full of stakeholders and decision makers in the world of sustainability.
“The main message throughout was that green should not be an option – it should be a conscious, committed choice.
“I felt companies had their acts together. They know what is green and what is green wash. There is accountability now that didn’t exist even two years ago, and that’s so exciting.
“The vibe at the show was great. Designers, builders and manufacturers are all eager to work in ways that make more sense to the planet.
“The show presented the ways to build communities for the future. And who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?”
