We received a few emails over the past few days wondering where OUR coverage of Earth Week was. It’s true I did take my time looking for interesting stuff to share, but in my defense, for the past few years our profession has been more focused than ever on being green. With todays trends focused on recycling, reusing, reducing our carbon foot print, and being LEED certified, Earth Week comes as a reminder for all those who haven’t adapted to this new standard. Earth Week isn’t just a yearly focus, but a change in lifestyle.
Here a few links on the topic at hand:
