Wish You Were Here: Advocacy Postcards @Greenbuild

Published on Written by , Jason Hartke Posted in Greenbuild

Join our postcard campaign to tell legislators about the important economic and environmental benefits of green building.

Greenbuild is a time to learn and reflect, to reunite and reenergize, and…to drop a postcard in the mail.

Too few policymakers get to see and experience Greenbuild, our annual gathering where industry rallies for green buildings, economy and jobs. And if they can’t be there, let’s make sure they know what they’re missing.

When you get to Greenbuild, come by the Advocacy Pod in either of the two USGBC @Greenbuild Lounges, pick some postcards, and send them off to your legislators. Help us send a strong message to our country’s leaders:

“Green buildings now account for one-third of all commercial design and construction in the United States, and that number is expected to increase to nearly half by 2015. Given their potential to save energy, water and money, to create jobs and to enhance the quality of our homes, communities and the environment, I hope you will support the growth of the green building industry.”

Don’t worry about postage or addresses. We’ll make it easy for you to send your personalized note. By making your voice heard, we help ensure continued support for green building and green communities.
