Scottsdale Leadership Sustainability Day

For the sixth year in a row, Green Ideas’ President and Scottsdale Leadership Graduate Charlie Popeck will act as the Day Chair for the non-profit organization’s Sustainability Day on November 18th, 2016.  The program highlights what is being done throughout the City of Scottsdale and Arizona in regards to critical environmental and business issues such as energy conservation, climate change, and the drought.  The agenda includes a sustainability overview, behavior modification strategy discussion, lifestyle suggestions, a review of Scottsdale’s sustainability initiatives, employee engagement, and the Triple Bottom Line approach to business operations. These discussion will be conducted by Charlie.  The day concludes with a visit to Singh Farms to observe how responsible agriculture is being implemented in the valley.  Green Ideas is proud to be associated with this annual event, which is slated to be attended by more than 50 local business leaders who will be using the information presented to create a more sustainable and livable world for all.

Goodmans Chair Hockey – Benefitting First Place Phoenix

The Goodmans Chair Hockey Event is back after a 10 year hiatus! What a great time. Sixteen teams of professional designers, constructors and commercial real estate professionals compete for the Goodmans Cup Trophy! Green Ideas was invited to join in as a spectator to the shenanigans and we had a great time! All proceeds from the event went to First Place Arizona, a developer dedicated to assisting adults with autism become more independent. 

Thanks Adam Goodman!

Clinton Global Initiative University 

Our Principal, John Cribbs was invited to showcase the ASUNM Solar Decathlon entry, SHADE, at the Clinton Global Initiative University. During this event he gave tours of the home to Chelsea Clinton and former Mr. President Bill Clinton among other notable people. The SHADE house is located on the corner of Central and Indian School in downtown Phoenix and is home to the non-profit entity Keep Phoenix Beautiful. This event was dedicated to a day of service to build infrastructure for Steele Indian School Park to house a community garden area.

Had a great time building, digging and educating!
