Deb & Kim are involved with the Greenwashing Index which led to the Greenwashing Forum which took place a few weeks back. I was lucky to attend this event, learned quite a bit about brands, advertising and authenticity.

Ignite Portland happened this past Thursday evening!
NVC sponsored Ignite this year, so part of our NVC team and I went up for the event!
