As our twitter followers may remember, NuBe Green attended (and live tweeted) the GoGreen conference last month. The conference provided an opportunity for businesses and government officials in Seattle to get together and discuss,debate and educate each other on issues of sustainability and green business practices.
From food production to transportation and building maintenance, the conference’s keynote speakers covered a diverse array of topics, all addressing the need for businesses and governments to commit to making sustainability a priority.
Most of our customers know that NuBe Green's mission is to find unique, hand-crafted products that are U.S made and sourced and sustainable. Sustainability is an integral part of NuBe's identity, but as speaker after speaker used the word, I began to wonder: what does "sustainability" really mean?

For every $100 spent in locally-owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays local. Spend it online non-locally and nothing comes home.
