Healthy Materials (Online)

Healthy Materials will take a dive into the broken promise of the statement “better living through chemistry.” 

Through assigned reading, case studies, videos and discussion,we will explore the effects of modern building products and household goods on our health.

We will begin to connect the health crisis that is ever present in our lives to our built environment and explore alternatives that are healthier for people and the planet. We will develop an awareness of the importance of choosing the most appropriate materials for our building projects, not only to help drawdown embodied carbon from our work, but also to choose healthy materials for both interior and exterior finishes.
