Inspiring Spaces Sustainable Design & Consulting (ISSDC) collaborates with organizations and homeowners to assess, strategize, provide feedback and ultimately implement a sustainability plan to use as a foundation for working towards healthy, beautiful and functional environments.
What is sustainability?
Sustainability is another word for "green" or "environmental" today. Many sustainable practices are money saving tactics for the home and office. The idea of recycle, reduce, reuse is a key phrase in green practices. Obviously reducing or reusing any products in the home or office can benefit the bottom line instead of purchasing new.
Sustainability & Social Responsibility
Often when sustainability is discussed social responsibility and corporate social responsibilty (CSR) are assumed. Social responsibility and corporate responsbility are ethical ideologies encouraging positive benefits to society whether active or passive. ISSDC believes in the power of CSR for we volunteer, participate, and sponsor organizations like Habitat for Humanity, The Ohio Environmental Council, Crown Point Ecology Center, & The Boys & Girls Club to name a few.
Are your home and office safe?
According to the EPA, Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. Estimated indoor levels of pollutants may be 2-5 times higher and sometimes up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels of pollutants (www.epa.gov/greenbuilding). A healthy home and office begins with a sustainable or green lifestyle.
