Cincinnati, OH, April 9, 2014 /3BL Media/ – Green Builder® Media, North America’s leading media company focused on sustainable living, is celebrating the second anniversary of the VISION House® in INNOVENTIONS, an innovative green home exhibit located in INNOVENTIONS at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort.
To celebrate Earth Day, a tree will be planted in honour of each guest (up to 2,500) who visits the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS from April 20-26, 2014. Green Builder Media will donate to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund so that the trees can be planted.
Guests who visit the exhibit on Earth Day will be able to participate in the Green Shopping Spree Game, which illustrates how everyone can make a difference by being an eco-friendly shopper. Items that we use or eat every day can affect wildlife and our environment by how they are made or thrown away. The Green Shopping Spree game will show families how choosing “green” products can make a big difference for nature.
“The purpose of the VISION House® in INNOVENTIONS is to present green living ideas in a fun and informative manner that empower guests with the knowledge that a sustainable future is possible,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “The Green Shopping Spree Game and the tree planting program, along with the exhibit itself, embody the mission of Green Builder Media, which is to affect positive change in the world.”
The VISION House® in INNOVENTIONS is a part of Green Builder® Media’s VISION House Series. These demonstration projects around the country, most of which are actual residences, are designed to highlight that a successful structure is more than simple shelter—it is an interactive set of systems that combine to create a truly green living environment for inhabitants.
