November 10th & 11th, 2012 – Hurricane Hauling & Demolition, Inc. attended the 2012 San Francisco Green Festival this past weekend at the Concourse Exhibition Center. The annual event, hosted by Global Exchange and Green America, is dedicated to sustainability, social justice, and ecological balance in U.S. cities including New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Hurricane’s booth was prime for foot traffic in the Conservation/Recycle section. A beautiful wall of Hurricane’s salvaged 100-year-old redwood lumber was constructed and displayed in the booth. “This weekend was very valuable for us in terms of networking, lead building, and of course, spreading awareness of the benefits of deconstruction,” said Hurricane’s Marketing Manager who spearheaded the event. “It’s an empowering experience when like-minded people with a shared passion for the environment are collaborating under one roof!”
This year, over 25,000 people attended. The Festival also featured engaging DIY demonstrations, provocative cinema, renowned keynote speakers, and non-stop “eco-edu-tainment”. Thematic pavilions and stages focused on green business, green building, renewable energy, fair trade, healthy lifestyle, sustainable home, organic gardening, do-it-yourself modern homesteading. Other features included a Green Kids Zone, Community Action Pavilion, Organic Cooking Stage, Organic Food Court and Organic Beer & Wine and Garden.
