Owner and Chief Designer, Lynn Feinstein, just completed an intensive course in sustainability, taking the wealth of knowledge she has to the next level, and received my certification as an Accredited Professional.
The course is an industry-first, developed in conjunction with the Sustainable Furnishings Council and approved by ranking staff of Rainforest Alliance, World Wildlife Fund and one of the co-founders of USGBC/LEED. The program was written by a LEED AP and is designed to pick up where LEED leaves off, focusing specifically on the furnishings themselves and other interior design issues.
It provided a ton of detailed information on the environmental issues affecting choices and the wide range of product solutions, most of which don’t cost any more than ordinary ones. It’s simply a matter of knowing the right places to look and the right questions to ask.
She gained in depth knowledge how important all of this is, and she looks forward to being able to share what she has learned!
