So…. this newsletter is a little late. It was supposed to go out at the end of October. However, I was out in Portland, Oregon networking and learning alongside sustainability officers from across the country at the AASHE conference. I was joined by our very own Sam Hartman and Rick Panfil who enjoyed meeting partners at LUCIDand Bon Apetite along others. Annie Leonard, who you might recognize as the founder of the Story of Stuff and the new executive director of Greenpeace, was the keystone speaker who energetically kicked off the conference.
