As part of Shaw Contract Group’s prequel to GreenBuild 2015, we decided to engage Twitter followers directly with a tweet chat focused around safe building practices, material health and trending issues around sustainability. Followers can chime in using #shawlocalconvo to answer questions, share resources and respond to other opinions. Featured guests @RachelGutter, SVP of Knowledge for the U.S. Green Building Council, and Shaw Industries Product Sustainability Manager Kellie Ballew shared their insight and provided clarification as needed. Some of the condensed highlights from this conversation is shared in the feed below:
The conversation about designing for a positive impact is ongoing – stay tuned for additional content around material health and sustainable topics leading up to GreenBuild. Another tweet chat is scheduled to occur during the event – so make sure to follow our feed. We’ve also slated several speakers for Conversations in the Park, so make sure to visit us in booth #1305 for these opportunities to engage with sustainability leaders.
