Design a healthier home.

 

Although we usually think of our homes as safe, the reality is that many of the products used to build and furnish homes commonly contain chemicals of concern. Deceptively, many products marketed as "green", "eco-friendly", and "non-toxic" are making inaccurate or exaggerated claims. We help you select preferable building materials, interior finishes, and furnishings and, ultimately, design a healthier home.
