A message from Green Plumbers CEO, Steve Lehtonen:

Out with the old year – in with the new granddaughter. Here I am holding Noe Grace, on Christmas Eve.

The next decade looks bright and full of promise for Green Plumbers, as the need (and desire) to save energy and water shifts into high gear. In this new decade consumers will focus on energy independence because new products will decentralize the ways in which energy is delivered, and re-shape how water is used. We will be bringing you the products of the future beginning in 2010, because innovations will be plentiful and our GreenPlumbers will want first crack at them.

We are thankful for your support, and for the excitement and enthusiasm of the plumbing industry for the Green Plumbers program. We are training instructors as fast as we can, and one of our goals is to have our 12 week series of evening workshops available in an area near you.

Here’s wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Going Global

GreenPlumbers head instructor, Doug Kirk, traveled to India this month to lead a group of fifteen Indian plumbing professionals through the five GreenPlumber workshops. This was an important step forward in Green Plumbers' goal to spread globally, and soon green plumbing workshops will be held continuously in India with the help of IAPMO.
