A minute with the new guy at GLOBE

March 30, 2010

I attended the GLOBE 2010 Trade Fair last week with Stefan, our new Business Development Coordinator. We had a fantastic time cruising “the marketplace for sustainable solutions”. There was so much to look at!

We met reps from alternative energy companies, environmental management firms, green building suppliers, industry associations and more. It was fascinating to hear about the latest and greatest innovations emerging from these sectors.

Fairware at the Olympics: Vancouver House

March 22, 2010

During the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Fairware was featured in Vancouver House. The City of Vancouver set up the “House” to highlight the city’s Green Capital Initiative. The Vancouver Green Capital brand is at the heart of the creation of a robust, long-term economic strategy that will guide the City’s pursuit of economic opportunities around the world.

The exhibit included products and images from many innovative and sustainability-focused businesses in Vancouver. We were proud to be in such cool company – profiled along with Vancouver based businesses Fluevog Shoes and  Red Flag Designs.

We recently uploaded some photos of the exhibit to our Flickr site. You can view them HERE.
