Greener by Design 2009 Report

Multinationals and Entrepreneurs Come Together to Share Challenges and Opportunities

We've brought the curtain down on our second annual Greener by Design conference, and it was a huge success -- nearly 200 designers, product managers, sustainability professionals and other industry leaders came together for two days of in-depth discussion of the issues around the theme of "Greener products for leaner times." editors Matthew Wheeland and Jonathan Bardelline covered the keynotes, panels and breakout sessions along with blogger Amie Vaccaro; you can read all the blog posts and Twitter feeds below. Be sure to read about Bill McDonough's keynote on nature's rights; Plastiki, the ocean exploration vessel, built by David de Rothschild; our profile of eight small but innovative companies; Marc Gunther's look at how Method is evolving laundry detergent; and Tom Szaky's goal to recycle all waste, everywhere, into cool stuff.
