o2NYC, of the o2-global eco-design network, is extending its hand to all NYC designers, businesses, and pretty much anyone that is interested in, or involved in the eco-design industry. THe o2|e2 project is working towards expo and online database for 2006 to showcase and promote the greener side of NYC. There is a growing, but largely unrecognized, community of green design businesses sprouting in the five boroughs of New York City. These businesses, whether design consultancies, architecture firms, manufacturing companies or related services, constitute a nascent industry. This industry has the potential to become a significant and positive economic sector for the city, portraying New York as a center for ecological thinking while creating "green-collar" jobs.
