  • 12 pm EST – Complete Kohler plumbing conservation solutions for residential settings
  • 1 pm EST – A look at Proximity Hotel – named “greenest hotel in America” by North Carolina magazine – and its mix of hospitality (public/commons) restrooms and commercial (guest) bathrooms that feature water-savings faucets and fixtures

“Conservation is not a niche market trend – it is a growing concern across the globe,” says Jim Westdorp, group president of Kohler Kitchen and Bath. “The virtual expo is an ideal platform for sharing our Greenbuild booth experience with interested trade professionals and consumers around the globe. It is filled with innovative water-efficient products and solutions.”
