1st Annual Green Schools Conference

I just returned from the 1st Annual Green Schools Conference in Minneapolis. With over 900 educators, students, administrators and parents, as well all the exhibitors of green products and services, it was an inspiring event. The conference title, Growing Green Schools, was a good analogy for the conference – growth is an organic process, which requires the right conditions, time, and in the case of a good gardener, thoughtful and constant attention. At our booth, AusPen eco-friendly markers were so well received. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and shared your excitement over this innovative product, and for sharing your green experiences. We were happy, but not surprised, when several educators said they already use AusPens in their schools! It was our greatest pleasure to meet with the student representatives from local Green Charter Schools whose enthusiasm and commitment to environmental action was inspiring. My favourite quote of the conference came from a young man in high school who madly took notes on the environmental, health and cost benefits of AusPen markers. According to him, and now according to me, “This is so hot!”
