Mike Zuckerman is the founder of 3rdSpaces and Director of Sustainability for San Francisco’s Award Winning Temple Nightclub – 2008 San Francisco Small Business of the Year and Treehugger’s Greenest Nightclub in the World in 2009. Under his guidance Temple has established industry-wide best practices in resource conservation, boasting an 89% diversion from landfill rate.

He frequently speaks publicly about the intersection of Entertainment and Sustainability including moderating the Miami Winter Music Conference’s panel “Greening the Entertainment Industry”.

About 3rd Spaces: The mission of 3rdSpaces is to build a global community of environmentally conscious businesses and consumers that accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices, while creating green collar jobs for the unemployed. We achieve our mission by working with restaurant, bar, and nightclub owners to save them money through efficiency services and leveraging buying power to reduce costs associated with becoming sustainable. These businesses become centers for communities of environmentally energized people to gather and flourish.
