In October, Fireclay Tile announced that it was donating to Greenbuild’s Legacy Project. Each year the USGBC’s Greenbuild conference and expo chooses a project to thank the host city. This year the conference was in San Francisco and the Legacy Projects were two urban gardens. The funds for the projects were not only to set up the garden, but to provide support and training to keep the garden going. Check out our previous blog here.
We were very excited to support this endeavor! We decided that for every person who came to Fireclay’s booth at Greenbuild and had his or her badge scanned, we would give $1 to the Greenbuild’s Legacy Project. We gathered around 350 scans so we were able to donate $350! Below are photos from the conference.
Here is the graphic for our Greenbuild 2012 buttons

On the second day of the expo, where product and service providers have booths, Fireclay closed the factories in San Jose and Aromas and brought the entire Fireclay team to San Francisco. Everyone had the chance to look around the expo at Greenbuild and have a picnic lunch. It was a great day to spend some time with co-workers, see other companies and see Fireclay tile installations in downtown San Francisco.
Hello from the entire Fireclay team in San Francisco!
