Green-ing Design

Silo via TinyHouseBlog

Most of you may know that I am one of the hosts for #IntDesignerChat on Twitter- today's topic is one that has gained notoriety in the past few years and still gaining steam, Green Design. Over the next couple weeks, I'll be posting quite a bit about some simple changes you can make in your own home to become more enviro-friendly and also the way we help our clients at Cupboards choose sustainable and green products.

"Green" is tricky in our industry and there are lots of ways to do things that are eco-friendly and sustainable, yet not fall in to the commercialized "green" movement. Additionally, far too many products that we buy that make claims of "eco-friendly" simply aren't.

I hope that you'll join us for today's chat- You can learn about how to participate and the questions that we will be covering here.

One of my favorite sites for debunking myths propagated by product suppliers is Sins of Greenwashing. Check 'em out.

The Seven Sins of Greenwashing

I hope to see you on the chat at 5pm CST tonight on Twitter. Just enter the hashtag #IntDesignerChat in your search bar and follow along.

As my old friend Kermit says, "It ain't easy bein' green!"
