    What's new in '22

    The pandemic has made raw material supply very very challenging this year.  So many of the new product offereings that we would normally launch in the beginning of the year have been pushed back. Today, Im focusing attention on a few new offerings at The Green Design Center and how these can make your home healthier.  Thanks for listening!

    Who's Influencing You?

    Who's Influencing You?

    Ive started recording a show like this several times in the last few months, but could never muster up the courage to publish.  But this week I just couldn't take it anymore.  I pride myself on the decades of experience in the healthy building field and the things I've learned over those years.  Even going on more than a 30 year career, Im still learning every day. But, my inbox has been flooded lately by clients asking why so many Instagram influencers are giving healthy home advice, without having any actual training or experience to back up their opinions. I couldn't help myself...I had to run to the microphone and all you know what I think of this.  Enjoy ;)

    And the Questions Keep Coming!

    It has been quite a white since Jay and I had a chance to answer some listener questions, so we finally got together and hit the record button.  THANK YOU to everyone who submits these questions.  Most are answered "off the air" via email, but we do like to focus on a few right here so everyone has a chance to learn.  Enjoy the show.

    30 Years and Still Going!

    30 Years and Still Going!

    It's amazing for me to think about when I started GDC way back in 1992 and what we would have accomplished by now.  Im so lucky to have such wonderful customers, listeners and friends and family who have supported me  and my dream all these years.  For today's show, I spend spme time reflecting on these past 30 years and why I'm so excited about the next 30.

Healthy Home Concierge weighs in

As Healthy Home Concierge, who deeply researches products, I can say— Andy Pace has done his homework. And having worked with many clients with MCS, allergies, asthma— I can see he’s a true expert, the real deal. He’s right— try the best solutions available now, vs letting perfection paralyze you. I’ll only add— take a holistic approach to your health. For best info, highly recommended Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, leading Functional Med N.D. Excellent podcast, aboiut MCS-related topics too.

Great explanations

The experience, knowledge, and well-presented information that I gain from this podcast are invaluable. I’m so appreciative that Andrew and Jay take the time to discuss ways to have healthy home. Everything in the conventional building world is focused on energy savings and LEED certification. Unfortunately that doesn’t equal non toxic! As a “canary” I refer often to this duo and to Green Design Center for my home building and remodeling projects. Thank you!

I love the podcast and the flow and harmony of the exchange of knowledgeable conversations they have with each other. Thanks Andy and Jay , it’s always appreciated
