We sincerely believe educating the market and sharing knowledge we’ve gained are two of the most important things we do, whether we are presenting to a handful of young, future entrepreneurs, an experienced group of green business people or a room jammed with seasoned packaging buyers eager to reduce costs as well as their carbon and water footprint.
2012 is already shaping up to be a busy and exciting year in terms of appearances and presentations. Here is a peek at where we’ll be:
International Housewares Show – Saturday March 10th – Tuesday, March 13th
Chicago, IL at McCormick Place
I will be appearing in the Sustainability Experts Booth and looking forward to meeting any customers who may be attending or anyone who just wants to talk about green packaging products and processes. This is my fourth year participating at this huge show, and even though I personally have a problem with the “expert” designation, if longevity within an industry means anything, perhaps I am approaching “guru” status. Please stop by the booth on Sunday morning and say hello.
Green America’s Green Festival – Saturday, May 5th – Sunday, May 6th
Chicago, IL at Navy Pier
This is always one of my favorite green events each year where we have made many new friends and discovered some terrific new green products. This year, I was invited to deliver a presentation based on my recent Green Biz post where with an obvious sense of humor I looked back at a few of the many mistakes my wife/partner and I made when launching our new green business five years ago. Stop by for some time- and money-saving advice, as well as a laugh or two.
LOHAS Forum – Tuesday, June 12th – Thursday, June 14th
Boulder, CO at Boulderado Hotel
For anyone unfamiliar with this excellent organization, LOHAS stands for Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability. It is my first time at this annual gathering of some of the greenest companies and minds in America, and on Thursday afternoon I will be presenting on a panel discussing sustainable packaging.
That pretty much fills the first part of the year, but we are fairly wide open this summer and beyond. If you are interested in having us participate in your program, please feel free to contact us. Schedule permitting, we rarely say no and we would welcome the opportunity to share our green marketing and packaging experience with your audience.
