We are proud to introduce the BuildSMART (Sustainable Materials and Resources Trailer) to Los Angeles!
The trailer is a mobile learning resource that demonstrates sustainable living/working environments, illustrating best practices for green building. BuildSMART is outfitted with a variety of materials and systems, including sustainable flooring, recycled countertops, non-toxic insulation, anti-microbial wallboards, solar PV, tankless water heating, among other efficient energy and water conservation methods.
BuildSMART is supported by a Community Partner Grant funded by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, making it possible for us to start the Road Trip to visit local schools, parks and festivals, along this year.
We are looking for volunteers to be in the trailer during the visits, giving instruction and illustrating the benefits of sustainable materials and resources. A manual with details of each product on display is available to prepare talking points.
