This Week in Atlanta

The big event this week is something that just popped up on our radar.  The second annual Atlanta Environmental Trade Mission is going on much of the week.  This mission will bring together international players in business and politics to discuss how the city of Atlanta can move forward on it's environmental agenda.  The focal points of this year's mission are clean water, innovative waste management and cutting edge technologies for green buildings.  On Saturday, Trees Atlanta is holding its 10th annual tree sale.  Check out the post below to see all of the other events that are going on.  Have a green week!
