"Sustainable Brands 09 celebrates the creativity and innovation of those who are creating new solutions to the many challenges in today's world," says KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, President and CEO of Sustainable Life Media, organizers of Sustainable Brands. "We are continually inspired by the problem-solving focus and continued optimism in our community. The challenges we all face of adapting in the face of global economic upheaval, environmental degradation and societal inequities are real, but the rewards are great for those who lead the way forward."

The group brings a cross section of perspective and expertise in business strategy, brand leadership, design, materials, culture change and cross-sector collaboration.
