Adrian Grenier Talks Sustainable Product Website SHFT.com

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSWhile at Go Further with Ford, we learned about sustainable products. Adrian Grenier (Vincent Chase: Entourage) joined the panel talking about options for consumers – fuel economy, biodegradable and recyclable parts, etc. Adrian also talked about his website SHFT.com, which gives people making sustainable products a place to promote themselves. For instance, on the website, they show a park bench that was made from salvaged shipping pallets. SHFT also talks about Robert Moses Joyce and what a vision quest looks like, and many other products and visions of those giving back to the environment. SHFT is co-founded by Peter Glatzer, who was also at the event.

It was a great discussion with Adrian, and I thank him...
