The ViridiSTOR Green Box Solution™ is one of the first fiscally sound, sustainable solutions to address one of our world's most significant environmental issues: the "paper pollution" occurring at more than 1.3 million events held annually in the United States alone. This innovative solution allows attendees to collect and organize a wealth of information on a reusable USB stick, eliminating the need to carry tens of pounds of paper handouts or binders full of conference materials. Information of all types (PDF, video, word processor, text files, etc.) is presented on the USB via the Presenter™ application, essentially making it a "library on the USB." With ViridiSTOR's patented technology, the information gathered at any event is infinitely more useable and shareable with the click of a mouse. The solution provides a significant cost savings while also saving the environment!
