My feet still hurt from the back-and-forth, back-and-forth trek from the north and south halls of last week’s Greenbuild conference at the Toronto Canada convention center. These two large exhibit halls were separated by a walk that I’m guessing is somewhere between a quarter and a half mile walk, a trip I made about 24 times over a 3-day period.
Despite the indoor geography, I’m still happy that I attended this year and I’m excited to share what I saw, starting with the exhibitor and product that inspired me the most: LittleFootprintTM Lighting.
The California-based company makes just one product, the HeronLED task lamp. The design is simple, elegant, and loaded with personality. Clearly, as the name suggests, nature was the inspiration but the manufacturer didn’t stop there. The construction of this birdlike lamp speaks volumes about LittleFootprint Light’s commitment to sustainability.
