One of the most important aspects of sustainability is health - health of the indoor environment, of the occupants, of the materials. Designing and specifying with a concern for healthy indoor air quality promotes better living and working environments. We offer interior materials along with furniture and fixtures that promote indoor air quality, are toxin-free, and are water/energy-efficient. In addition to providing an inspiring environment in which to explore materials and discuss projects, we are also an educational center for learning about sustainable products, efficient energy use, and the vision of sustainability as it relates to the health of our homes, businesses, bodies, and planet.

When it comes to sales, logistics, ordering, and everything in between, I'm your go-to person. Being in this line of work, I know that the market is constantly changing and new products are always being developed. Discovering these new and unique materials is what makes my job so great. Growing up and even while raising a family of my own, I, like most people, was unaware of the hidden toxins in our living spaces. Working with Sustain and learning about how particular products can reduce these toxins has caused me to become interested in sharing these alternatives with others in order to build healthier spaces for themselves and their families. Not to mention, I absolutely love seeing our customers' reactions to how beautiful their spaces turn out! Read More Read Less

Because of this, we strongly encourage you to meet with us one-on-one to discuss your project parameters and desired products. We love to see new faces in our showrooms! If you are unable to meet face-to-face with us, we are able to discuss jobs with you via email or telephone. Stop by, send us an email, or give us a call today and figure out what we can do for you!
