Action Plan Managing the sustainable design effort at Two Twelve Associates began with a plan. A clear course of action was laid out for integrating the office's green priorities into projects and the office space itself.

The library shown above is a growing collection of documented research, resources, material samples, and material mock-ups. While the Manager of Sustainable Design at Two Twelve Associates, a Green Library with a label system for green materials and product information was designed and implemented. The labels created a cross - reference system linking the material samples and product information found in The Green Library's Green Binders.

Motivation and InspirationOnce a month, the office had Pop Quizzes with green prizes to encourage thinking green in a lively way. The quizes were based on a "Word of The Week", emailed to every employee in the office.
