The past few months been busy with trade shows that relate to green building and sustainable products. It's been so informative and fun to meet so many of the readers of ProudGreenHome and discover tons of interesting new products. And of course, finding stories to write about these cool new technologies.
The first show was in February. It was the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) International Builders' Show in Orlando. I was, simply in awe. And of course I fell in love while I was there, but that's another story. Or video, as the case may be.
There was just so much to see at all of the shows, from the ultimate kitchen faucet to the best paint for your home, to which landscaping is the most eco-friendly. There were sustainbility trends
I will be taking a bit of a trade show break for a while, but rest assured you will find me in September at Solar Power International in Orlando, and at the USGBC GreenBuild in November. It's in San Francisco this year, which just so happens to be one of my favorite cities on the planet.
Stay tuned for updated show coverage and more stories about all the amazing things I found while I was at the shows.
