Margarita Lopez talks about Rooster designed Green Guide

Rooster got props from some powerful and amazing women in sustainability/environmental world this past Earth Day.

At an event hosted by NYCHA for their residents, the Rooster-designed green guide was unveiled as NYCHA announced their efforts in the Green Agenda.  Moderated by Margarita Lopez, NYCHA Board Member, the event had a roundtable of experts including Lauren Yarmuth of YRG Sustainability (and advisor to desigNYC) and Mary Barber of the Environmental Defense Fund.   During the introductions, Mary Barber held up the Green Guide and commented that she’s come across many guides in her travels and the guide we wrote and designed was the best and most clear she’s ever seen.

In a one-on-one interview earlier in the evening, Margarita Lopez is quoted saying that our designs captured the feeling in a way “that is so dynamic and so accurate, it made her feel like she was walking through the developments.”  She continued, “This Green Guide is going to be the single most important piece of everything we are going to do with the Green Agenda.”

Yup, we’re her secret weapon to help change people’s behavior….her words.
