Everyone wants to go green, and that's usually about as far as most people take that sentiment: they only say so. You can stand out from the earth-mehing herds by attending the Chicagoland Chamber's Dec. 4 event at DIRTTT Environmental Solutions on 325 N. Wells St., Ste. 1000 from 9 a.m. 'til 5 p.m. According to the Chamber, "upon completion of the course, participants are able to effectively develop Sustainability strategies, implement CSR programs, and communicate performances through Sustainability/CSR Reports."
You can also save 15 percent on the registration fee ($1,450) with the code "CCC15," which ain't much comparatively, but, hey, it ain't nothing either, right? You can sign up for the event and read much, much more about it here, and it's kinda short notice, but think about how much time we have left to still save Mother Gaia?
