About Us

The Rebuild Green EXPO is a came out of a concern from many quarters following the catastrophic fires in the North Bay of 2017. A group of green building professionals, community organizers and others formed the Rebuild Green Coalition under the auspices of the Ecological Building Network, a North Bay 501c3 organization that specializes in developing and disseminating information on healthy, low-carbon building.

The group spent a day together developing a framework for what it means to rebuild green, and following that effort it became clear that the next step was to take the ideas to homeowners, building professionals, and other stakeholders to encourage sustainable, resilient building.

The first Rebuild Green EXPO in February, 2018 was a huge success, drawing as many as 2000 interested people. By popular demand, we are proud to present Rebuild Green EXPO 2019, with an even larger array of great ideas, tips, products and professionals to make choosing green easy and affordable.

Ecological Building Network (EBNet) is the fiscal sponsor for Rebuild Green Coalition and the Rebuild Green EXPO.
