WestCoast Associates Inc., DBA Small Planet Workshop, is a company dedicated to the supply, education, and training in the use of energy-efficient building materials and practices. As interest in the emerging world of Passivhaus and energy efficient building envelopes has grown, we have too. While we hope to find local products, our dedication to building the brightest and smartest regional building culture requires us to go where the innovation happens and bring back the results. As these products take root in North America, demand increases and local manufacturing partnerships can begin. However... it all has to start with where the innovation happens. It's our opinion that social responsibility and a profitable business have never been mutually exclusive. We support and agree with new thinking that illustrates that social and environmental issues are, in fact, market opportunities. Addressing the issues of the day is in fact a sustainable & profitable business plan.
