Sustainability

Recently, at an Interior Design Community (IDC) G+ hangout entitled “How Can We Help?” James Bedell, Susan Serra and Laurie Laizure explored ways the design community can help make the world a better place.  They decided to have a hangout dedicated to the topic of sustainability.  James dug into his Rolodex and came up with a panel of experts on the subject.  As a result, the first ever IDC Sustainability Summit will take place at Goggle+ on Thursday, September 5th.
