5 Environmental and Sustainability Events in Denver this May


It’s no secret that Greenbox Self Storage cares about our environment. Sustainable business practices are our specialty, but we didn’t find out how to establish these practices on our own. We’ve attended countless environmental conferences and events over the last decade. These events have inspired and educated us on ways we can limit our carbon footprint on the world. Below are 5 Denver events that focus on the environment, sustainability, and how we can create better business practices that don’t harm our home planet. We hope to see you there!

What: Volunteer at an Organic Garden

By: Project Helping

When: May 19th 10AM-2PM

Where: Jovial Concepts, 5045 W 1st Ave, Denver

Nearly 1 in 5 households with children reported food hardship and more than 25% of working families in Colorado do not have enough food to meet their basic needs. By transforming 40 urban lawns into organic gardens, Jovial Gardens will grow enough fresh produce to feed 250 Colorado families. Using gardens as a classroom, participants learn sustainability, environmental awareness, healthy food practices, and how to combat obesity and other health issues associated with food hardships.

Project Helping volunteers will help Jovial Concepts participants with set up and maintenance for their urban gardens including turning the soil, seeding, planting, weeding, and harvesting, depending on the time of the season. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!

What: Introduction to Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) for Manufacturers

By: Manufacturer’s Edge

When: May 22nd 9AM-4PM

Where: Geotech Environmental Equipment, Inc., 2650 East 40th Avenue, Denver

Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) is the next big thing in electronics manufacturing. It’s an entirely new platform for electronics. But what is it and how will it affect your business?

FHE manufacturing combines printed elements with semiconductors to create thin flexible electronic devices. With FHE, manufacturers can create electronics that can be lighter in weight, conform to the curves of a human body, or stretch across the shape of an object or structure—all while preserving the full operational integrity of traditional electronic architectures.

Join them for a one-day, hands-on workshop where we will explore the limitless potential and endless possibilities of this exciting, disruptive technology and help you discover ways to implement Flexible Hybrid Electronics into your products in order to give you a distinct competitive advantage.
