Los Angeles, CA (September 8, 2016) The U.S. Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter (USGBC-LA) is offering a fun way to get to know Los Angeles’ green buildings and iconic spots, while also offering a free pass to the Expo portion of the upcoming Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, happening Oct. 5-7 at the LA Convention Center.
Enter…EcoMapLA (please click here, or visit USGBC-LA’s home page). Launched in preparation of Greenbuild, but for Angelenos and any L.A. visitors, EcoMapLA was created to be the go-to resource for all things sustainable in Los Angeles, with drop-down menus to filter the map for LA’s Green Buildings, Green Businesses and Iconic City Landmarks. Click on a location for a description (with images), the address (with directions), and links to additional information (including the LEED scorecard), where available. Explore the city with self-guided tours, transportation routes, and visitor information to experience LA’s green efforts and follow our sustainability story – from iconic Muscle Beach in Venice, to Columbia Square in Hollywood (LEED Gold), to Bikeshare (Grand/14th St.).
To earn a free Expo pass, anyone can access the map, take a selfie at a location on EcoMapLA, post the image and location name listed on EcoMapLA, and tag @USGBCLA on Twitter, or @U.S. Green Building Council Los Angeles Chapter on Facebook. USGBC-LA will respond with a direct message and a code for the Expo pass (value $150).
The Expo Hall is the central hub of the event, featuring over 600 diverse exhibiting companies, with a vast array of products and services for the sustainable building industry. The Expo includes pavilions dedicated to Net Zero Energy, Health & Wellness, Water, Interiors & Design, Residential, Technology, Lighting Solutions, Wood, Non-Profit, and the 500 Mile Pavilion, which is for companies that manufacture their product or their corporate office is located within 500 miles of Los Angeles.
“We are so excited to launch EcoMapLA in conjunction with Greenbuild,” says Dominique Hargreaves, USGBC-LA Executive Director. “An incredible amount of work and research has gone into making this resource thoroughly informative and inclusive across L.A. County, encouraging both residents and visitors to connect with the great number of sustainable spots that now cover the region.”
Veronica Flores and Marilyn Lampel, who lead L.A.’s Greenbuild Momentum Committee and spearheaded EcoMapLA, state, “This has been such a fun project to see grow and offer the only resource to every sustainable locale in L.A. We are continually updating this application so that it has the most current info available, so if we’re missing something, please contact us! We are grateful to concept3D for their technology in creating the map, and to all the countless volunteers who researched each site and corresponding information to date.”
