Hello, all! I was at the Surfaces show today wearing my very "green" T-shirt.

I got the full support of the NWFA behind being green (that's me with NWFA CEO Michael Martin). Stop by their booth (the NWFA Pavilion along with Hardwood Floors at B3552) to say hello and look for me on the floor.

Elizabeth Baldwin has over 20 years of international wood sourcing experience. Very widely traveled, her résumé's "Special Skills" section includes "the ability to eat anything from raw horse to deep-fried scorpion." She serves as Metropolitan Hardwood Flooring's (metrofloors.com) ECO (Environmental Compliance Officer) and deals daily with the "green alphabet soup" of today's industry: FSC, CARB, LEED, and much more. She blogs for Hardwood Floors on all things green (and, as she says, " 'grey' and 'blue' and almost every color except 'black and white.' Nothing in this world is black and white, particularly not 'green issues.'")
