Andy Ball, CEO, Webcor Builders
Beth Springer, EVP, Clorox
Dave Steiner, CEO, Waste Management, Inc.

Companies and consumers are being asked to think more about the full life-cycle of the products they make and buy. Whether making consumer goods or constructing skyscrapers, companies are coming around to such a cradle-to-cradle mentality. This panel, which includes the CEO of the country's largest recycler, $14 billion Waste Management, will discuss innovations in design, materials and marketing that are convincing people and companies that being green is good for business and the planet.

Location: Club Office
Time: 5:30 p.m. wine and cheese/networking, 6:30 p.m. program
Cost: $12 members, $18 non-members
