Today I attended the Built Green 2008 Conference in Seattle, WA. There were many vendors there all giving their gospels on the greatness of their "green" products or services. I gathered information and had the chance to ask many questions. As a Realtor, we must know our stuff when it comes to homes. With so many products out there on the market...it is often hard to keep up. That is what is so great about trade shows. Here you can always find the old faithfuls, those you have been around for years and have made a great name for themselves and those who are venturing out and spreading the word about their great new innovative product. Sometimes, those companies only pleasure us with a few short years of existence and then there are those companies who are like rockets-to-the-moon. Some of the venders that caught my eye today were:
LiveRoof- a modular green roof system.
Sustainable Industries-a magazine for green business leaders.
Squak Mountain Stone- a countertop made of recycled paper, coal-fly ash, cement, and glass.
Trinity Glass Products-a granite-resembling countertop made of 75% recycled glass.
Rinnai-a tankless hot water heater that could save you $$.
There were many, many more but I just wanted to give you a taste of my day. Cool products huh?
