Following in the footsteps of past events, Green Build 2023 will build on its success so far with its theme for the year: Building Transformation. The idea is based upon the desperate need to make change happen now in order to create a future for the generations after.

Not only will the world’s largest conference for green building be commemorating the 30th anniversary of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), it will also co-locate with the Industrialized Wood-Based Construction Conference (IWBC), which is the world’s only international conference of the sort.

If all this wasn’t enough, Green Build 2023 will introduce LEED v5, the latest version of the LEED green building program that advances decarbonization, equity, health, biodiversity, and resilience in the built environment.

Seeing as Green Build has and always will be about gathering frontline professionals dedicated to improving sustainability and quality of life in our buildings, cities, and communities, a company like Jay Scotts Collection fits perfectly with the ethos.

This is because above and beyond, Jay Scotts is dedicated to providing customers with planters made out of fiberglass, a material that is as high in quality as it is environmentally friendly.

No other planter on the market allows for as much of a climate-friendly approach to green landscaping and design as fiberglass. Made from melted glass that is passed through superfine holes before being woven into a desired shape, different resins are finally added to improve factors like durability, weight, and design flexibility.

Whether for use indoors or outdoors, the collection of Jay Scott’s fiberglass planters ensures that customers will be able to rest assured that not only is their money well spent, but they’re also using a planter that will not damage the environment or plant potted inside, in any way.
