>> Ecodesign Resource Society (EDRS)
The society was started in 1992 to provide difficult-to-find information on sustainable design to the public and industry. Since its inception, EDRS has provided information on environmentally responsible design through exhibitions, symposiums, panel discussions, building tours, speaker series and publications. Areas of interest include planning and design at the site and community level, energy efficiency and alternative energy sources, water conservation, and waste reduction.
More recently, the society has begun to play a role as an on-line resource, using its web site as an information portal for linking planning professionals, students, the design/ building and manufacturing industries, and the public with information on sustainable and healthy design practices and products.
EDRS has also established an open list serve for the exchange of ideas and information
