  1. I strongly believe that everyone needs to start doing their part to be more environmentally responsible. It seems that we are just playing catch up but at least the movement is motivating. I work in the trade show industry and it ranks number 2 under construction and demolition for filling landfills. I am trying to persuade my customers to buy green trade show displays that are made out of environmentally friendly materials. These materials are basically recycled trash that when finished can be recycled again or if thrown away will break down faster than petroleum based products. I tell my customers that they are doing their part to help heal our sick planet. See if there is something you can change in your industry to start becoming green an deco friendly.
