eToolLCD Modelling Session May 2016

On 19th May 2016, we held our first eToolLCD Modelling Session check out the new software demonstration videos! This is part of the eToolLCD technical support to keep users up to date with new features, answers specific questions users may have when putting their LCA models together, and also to promote Life Cycle Design for the industry in general.

If you missed the session or you’d simply like a refresher, we recorded Tom demonstrating the following software functionality; building customised templates, using expressions, bulk swap, record recommendation, reporting and how to make improvements in your eToolLCD design. All the videos are located at the bottom of this page.

Initially we set up this event with the intention of it being a one time only event, however due to the success and the positive feedback from attendees on how much value they received, we have decided to run it for a second time. In this second session, eTool Team Leader of LCA Services, Tom Beckerling will demonstrate in detail some of the features of eToolLCD and answer any specific questions you may have.
If you missed out and would like to attend this event on 18th August 2016, make sure you register today to save your spot as there a limited number of places.

Tree Planting May 2016

eTool’s Tree Planting: Round Three

Here at eTool we are extremely passionate about reducing Greenhouse gas pollution. Since 2014 it has become a tradition that the team get together at the Bruce family farm to get our hands dirty and have a fun day tree planting. After months of anticipation, when May 7th finally arrived, the whole eTool team was excited for round three of planting trees.

Five months earlier, Co-Founder of eTool, Alex Bruce had handed out seeds and pots for the team to plant and start growing their own trees. Although some didn’t make it, overall the seeds were nurtured and looked after well, allowing them to rapidly grow to get ready for the big tree planting event.

The day was brilliantly run by Jenni and Lance the most fantastic tree planters and Mother Nature Day champions around. We had the best turn out yet, with over 40 people coming together to plant 300 trees and shrubs. Most people had grown their own trees from seed so quite a special moment to finally get them into the ground five months after planting the seeds in pots. The most important and rewarding element was watching all the kids getting their hands dirty and immersed in nature. Another truly special day enjoying nature and great company.
