IIDA NE Providence City Center, AIAri, and RISLA joined together to host the 2017 Green RI Sustainable Product Showcase on May 4, 2017. Companies producing earth-friendly building materials set up shop to display their latest and greatest products for industry members to view. In addition to exploring the tradeshow floor, attendees had the opportunity to attend CEU presentations, network with peers, and learn about the latest innovations regarding sustainable products from various vendors. The event also included an Earth Day sample collection so attendees had an opportunity to fill up a box (or three!) as they conquered their spring cleaning of their material library and donated unused/unwanted sample materials at the event!
