Illinois Green invites you to a 12 PM Webinar and optional Building Tour/Happy Hour Add-On to explore the building/material reuse economy from the perspectives of designers, contractors, and materials retailers. First, join us for a virtual webinar to learn how circular economy design strategies, diverting from construction waste streams, and the resulting workforce development implications impact the triple bottom line (profit, people, and planet). Panelists will also explain which reused materials are easiest to implement in design, which ones are easiest to salvage and donate during demolition and construction, and which are the easiest for non-profits to re-sell and keep in the use cycle.
