Yesterday, we helped the Atlanta Botanical Garden reach a major milestone—they introduced media to Moore in America and the $55 million Green Expansion, highlighted by the Garden’s new green-built Hardin Visitor Center. So what’s all the fuss about?
Well, when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand moore (yes-pun intended) than the words can ever portray on a blog, but suffice it to say that the Garden’s Visitor Center is a hallmark of modern technology, ecologic design and beauty. Gardeners, hold your shovels and get ready for my description. From rooftops that showcase growing expanses of sedum juxtaposed against the backdrop of Atlanta’s downtown skyline, the view just couldn’t get any better than this. Frothy lamb’s ear dance against the lawn perpendicular to osmanthus trees that look 50 years old, but have recently been planted. Elated for the Garden over its eco-friendly efforts, I resolved to make some changes in my own “green plan.” What could c21 or I do differently to help sustain the planet?
Then, I read this inspiring article by Paul Hoffman that offers 10 tips for a greener business that provide immediate results for this new resolve. These are ideas we all can implement today. Check back with us in the future and see how we have put these tips into action to make our “gardens” greener.
