The time has come. Welcome to The Interior Environmentalist. In the near future, this blog will become a destination for reviews and information on green interior design products.
You're probably thinking, "The world of green design is overwhelming and oversaturated already - who needs another green website?" But that's precisely why this blog has come into being. While doing research for my M.F.A. in Interior Architecture, I found many companies offering sustainable products, and several excellent databases of green building materials, but no good resource specifically for green interior design - fabrics, furnishings, fixtures, and the like. Hopefully this blog will help to fill that void.
Here are the goals of this site:
1. Provide a resource that interior designers and others can use to find green interior design materials.
2. Feature reviews and commentary on green products.
3. Promote the use of sustainable materials in the home and the workplace.
4. Contribute to the discussion on exactly what sustainability means.
I'd love to have your input in creating this site. Ideally it will be something bigger than me, something that grows out of a collection of our ideas and opinions. Please feel free to comment on any of my posts, and to send me suggestions for new posts or improvements to this site (dannon @ dannonrampton . com). I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.
