Since July, Lloyd EcoDistrict has been working with Right 2 Dream Too (R2D2) to help them find solutions to getting their new site set up after they were relocated from downtown Portland. The emergency shelter, or “rest area” as it is known, serves up to 100 people every night. Their mission is to provide a safe place for people to sleep undisturbed.
Our “Sleep and Recharge” campaign works in partnership with ebay Portland and Catlin Gabel School to meet two of R2D2’s immediate needs: 80 new high quality sleeping bags and 10 solar powered charging stations. These charging power stations or “juiceboxes” were developed by Solomon Olshin, a junior from Catlin Gabel, and his team (seen above).
Join us for a visually arresting night of film and conversation with renowned filmmaker Harun Mehmedinović. On Tuesday, October 17th, Harun will present SKYGLOW, a magical “timelapse” video series exploring North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment.
Tuesday, October 17st is the 10th Annual GoGreen Conference. Lloyd EcoDistrict will be presenting at the lunchtime plenary, along with our fabulous partners The City Repair Project, DoubleTree Hotel, Hassalo on Eighth, and B-Line Urban Delivery. Get your tickets today!
Upgrade to LED lighting for better productivity!
How much do workplace environments effect productivity? Quite a lot actually – lighting which appears more blue (also known as high correlated color temperature) is most similar to sunlight and can substantiallyincrease alertness, well-being and work performance in office environments. Conversely, exposure to this “blue” light in the evening can throw off your sleep schedule, causing too much alertness.
This is one more great reason to upgrade to LEDs! With a range of colors available, and excellent color stability, LED lighting can really enhance the workplace, and be a draw for tenants. Considering upgrading to LEDs? LAMP makes it easy and affordable. Contact us to get started!
