What Does it Mean to be Green?
There is no doubt our industry has gone through a radical change in the last few years with the economy, the change in client buying patterns and the Internet. The most lively trend we all see is the movement toward "Green" Design. We are hearing words sustainable, eco-friendly, organic, organically grown, harmonically grown, renewable, etc. on a daily basis. Its still a relatively new concept and for many it can be confusing.
In this business, as with most, we have to invest in life-long learning, and when it comes to Green Design, I am looking forward to learning more! More and more of my customers are coming to me everyday asking about “smart” fabrics, eco-friendly fibers and green products. And I have many questions myself. So I've decided to take the next step and I am attending the Green Design Summit on June 29 & 30. This will provide me with the education I need to bring you, my customers, the latest product offerings and information that will help us all to be more gentle to our environment and health and consider more energy-efficient and earth-concious options.
I am very excited about this and look forward to bringing all this new knowledge and product offerings to you going forward.
Please check back with me for highlights from the event!
In good health,
