|In botany, a rhizome is a network of roots, closely knit, drawing nourishment from its surroundings to sustain the plant. For OWP/P’s fifth annual Environmental Awareness Week we sent roots into the community to create a network of professionals. Through lectures, workshops, and innovative product demonstrations new ways to incorporate sustainable design into our professional and everyday lives were explored.
