Picture this: attending a party where you are enjoying a frosty libation served in a Styrofoam cup, knowing you can't recycle the cup. Now picture recycling the cup at the party.
Join us the day after Earth Day here for a great ReUse in Houston display from the University of Houston to view while networking with other like-minded people, and free refreshments here and libations served in Styrofoam cups that you can leave behind guilt free!

Green buildings provide greater energy efficiency, saving money for owners and users, and the reuse of materials is better for the environment. Ultimately, they foster a happier and healthier workplace for employees. In partnership with the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the US Green Building Council, the Green Building Resource Center, within the LEED Gold Houston Permitting Center, hosts periodic programs to educate the public about green building practices.
