Ivory Coast is using plastic waste to build schools

Let's make your home green.
A green home is a type of house designed to be environmentally sustainable. Green homes focus on the efficient use of energy, water, and building materials. A green home may utilize sustainably sourced, environmentally friendly, and/or recycled building materials. It may include sustainable energy sources such as solar or geothermal, and be sited to take maximum advantage of natural features such as sunlight and tree cover to improve energy efficiency. A green lifestyle incorporates systems of food production and health into the home, taking your green house to the next level.
Systems for your home.
We are dedicated to the use of green products in all of our eco-interior designs, giving you a beautiful home that you can feel good about. We also create organizational systems that help you keep your home clutter-free. These systems look good and are highly functional, offering you the opportunity to live your life with less stress and give you more time to focus on nurturing the living systems that sustain you, such as the kitchen garden or the aquaponics system in your living room.
Clutter can make the most beautiful home feel chaotic. Often times, the difference between chaos and organization is a matter of creating systems for the stuff in your life. We specialize in creating easy to maintain organizational systems that can help you keep your home clean and your mind at ease.
We start with an assessment of the quality of your indoor environment, then we create a design for the healthiest home for you and your family. We then help you implement the design and can even maintain systems for you if you prefer, otherwise we give you a maintenance plan to care for your home.
