BENEFITING: NORTHWEST ECOBUILDING GUILD
EVENT DATE: Jan 31, 2016
Green Building Innovators are Inspiring! - for 20+ years they've been inventing designs, materials and technology that make it easier to build green. The Code Innovations Database empowers innovators, sharing their proven solutions so others can follow their lead. Because of green innovators, it’s now possible to live and work in buildings that are healthier, produce their own energy, and protect our air and water. Yet they face an uphill climb and regulatory barriers that can stop their best ideas from getting to you. Help us help them... Watch our video, then support our campaign to empower these innovators and help us make their sustainable solutions the norm rather than the exception. The Code Innovations Database proves one thing: WE CAN Make it Easier to Build Green - by documenting and sharing proven solutions. YOU CAN help... By giving generously you'll help us expand our successful education platform into a national resource for sustainable solutions and regulatory precedents. Reaching our $40,000 goal will launch our 3-year expansion beginning in 2016, to put innovative solutions into the hands of every code official in the Northwest, and builders nationwide. We have a "stretch" goal of $60,000, which will allow us to publish a whole new crop of "Code Innovations for Living Buildings" - special solutions that go beyond sustainable to make truly restorative buildings possible*.
