We were pleased to host another conference at Paradise Point Island Resort in San Diego, CA. Both San Diego as a destination, and Paradise Point as a venue, offered unique opportunities for fresh perspective and creative inspiration for the Sustainable Brands community.
The Sustainable Brands team worked closely with the City of San Diego, Waste Management, Paradise Point’s management, and various other local groups to establish a truly sustainable conference. It began in 2012 in San Diego and the legacy now lives on at Paradise Point all throughout the year.
Paradise Point has committed to helping produce landmarks event with SB; with an understanding that the changes we make together will not only help reduce the footprint of their property, but also make a positive impact on our community and the planet.
