Sustainability Speed Dating: Yes, It Exists.
What is more fun than speed dating? Why, sustainability speed dating, of course! The Green Chamber of the South’s annual Sustainability Interactive, held on February 23, 2015 in Atlanta, was not only informative, but a great way to meet other sustainability leaders and learn from one another.
Mohawk, a member of the Green Chamber of the South, was given the opportunity to open the event with a presentation. To a full auditorium of a couple hundred people, I centered my presentation on the leading-edge work that Mohawk is doing with transparency.
After the opening presentation, sustainability speed dating began. I, along with other sustainability leaders from the southeast region were stationed at tables, and groups of people rotated around the room throughout the evening. Surrounded by Mohawk’s Declare labels, I had many intrigued table guests engaged in conversation focused on building products transparency. In fact, the interest was so high, that several people said that they would like to see Declare labels on all building products –including those used in their own home.
A huge crowd that was organizationally diverse and well versed in sustainability made for a very interesting evening. And, the sustainability speed dating part, well, that just made it fun!
