Earth911, Inc. has joined the Sustainability Consortium, an independent group of scientists and engineers working on a global database of information on the lifecyle of products. The Consortium’s focus is to develop Sustainability Measurement and Reporting Standards, S.M.R.S., that will define what product manufacturers should measure, how to measure it, and how to report it to a common database. Earth911 is a consumer recycling information provider that works to establish reporting standards for the recyclability of products and their packaging. 

Registration is now open for the Investors’ Circle Venture Fair and Forum for Spring 2011, to take place in San Francisco next month. The annual conference reviews over 200 companies that compete for 15, seven-minute presentation slots to 150 investors in hopes of raising between $250,000 and $3,000,000 dollars. Investors Circle will introduce a new “shared gifting” program in partnership with RSF Social Finance, a nonprofit financial services organization. Each presenting entrepreneur will receive a guaranteed $1,000 fee plus $1,000 to gift to another presenter.
