Filtrexx® LivingWalls™, leading manufacturer of living walls, retaining living walls and green roofs for industrial, commercial and consumer applications, will speak at Grey to Green Conference 2016 in Toronto, Canada (June 1-4, 2016). The presentation titled “Living Alternatives to Concrete Retaining Walls” will be given by Mark Woolbright, LivingWalls Division Manager at Filtrexx.

Organized by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation, the Grey to Green Conference 2016 is about sharing the value of green infrastructure (bioswales, green roofs, living walls, etc.) as an important tool in the fight to mitigate against and adapt to climate change. Doubled in size from prior years, Grey to Green Conference 2016 includes a two full-day program with 52 presentations and panel discussions from over 60 industry experts. This conference is the leading forum for designers, policy makers, manufacturers, growers, landscapers, and green building professionals to discuss the benefits of the green infrastructure industry, and how to grow it even further. “Our LivingWalls division is committed to developing sustainable alternatives for green infrastructure projects. We take pride in collaborating closely with our customers to identify the most suitable living wall, retaining living wall or green roof solution for their project”, said Mark Woolbright, LivingWalls Division Manager at Filtrexx.

Filtrexx LivingWalls has an extensive portfolio of living wall solutions. Their living walls offer higher aesthetic appeal for commercial and interior applications, while their retaining living walls provide the underlying structure needed to permanently stabilize extreme grade changes in industrial and building applications. “We build a wide range of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) and non-MSE solutions for walls and slopes from 45 to 80 degrees of inclination, with varying degrees of design flexibility and planting options. We are truly a one-stop shop for living walls, stabilization and stormwater management solutions because we also incorporate other systems from our Filtrexx Soxx technology portfolio”, said Woolbright.

EnviroBloxx®, the ultimate retaining living wall system, is one of the Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) living wall systems commercialized by Filtrexx LivingWalls. It is designed for walls up to five feet high and up to a 70° slope. “EnviroBloxx is a unique, light-weight system that brings a new level of ease and efficiency to do-it-yourself (DIY) homeowners and professional landscapers. Its modules are cast from 100% recycled polymer and each unit covers one square foot and weighs only three pounds”, said Woolbright. “We are looking forward to connecting with the green infrastructure community at the Grey to Green Conference and believe it is the right place to share our latest living wall solutions”.
