Now in it's third year, the Opportunity Green conference has really caught a rhythm. Held at the University of California Los Angeles, it was a truly inspirational experience. Staying far away from the stereotypical greenwashing I've encountered at so many events, Opportunity Green got to some of the core tactics for helping businesses and individuals be more environmentally minded. With speakers including Annie Leonard, producer and founder of The Story of Stuff; Adam Lowry, co-founder and Chief Greenskeeper (and TH guest contributor) of Method; and Chris Jordan, an internationally acclaimed artist and cultural activist, just to name a few. We had the chance to interview several of these fascinating speakers, starting with design star Yves Behar of fuseproject. Check out what he has to say in the video below, and watch this space for more great interviews.
