Catch RNN’s coverage of GREENBUILD Boston on Designing for Sustainability with Ken Filarski…

Business Side Of Green

Is it possible to make a solid wood bathtub out of a single 3000-Kilogram 6600 pound mass of wood that didn’t contain glue (or) Epoxy? More importantly, can it be done in a sustainable manner?

In a word, yes.  In fact, that is the focus of today’s show as we bring you Timber Neutral and their remarkable 6600 pound mass of wood that gets manufactured into a beautiful, sustainable tub.

But this story is much more than that.  This is an organization that helps other companies count their carbon.  And reduce it.  In a bid way. In a very mathematical, calculated, transparent manner.  And they help restore forest in every part of the world.

Our guest, Jonathan Kitzen, their CEO, lives his passion around “I take on projects that create a novel experience, connection, or product that leap beyond the current mode of thinking. Insight comes from attempting to make the impossible real.”

Love that line–“making the impossible real”.  We know how Jonathan, certainly after you listen to this wonderful segment, does it?   How do you?
