Healthy Materials Summit 2016 Recap

Thank you for an awesome healthy materials summit 2016!

The Healthy Materials Summit was AWESOME! This great event at Google's Cambridge HQ was informative, innovative, engaging, and unique.

In only half of a business day, an expert panel of local industry leaders lead the packed room through a detailed discussion of healthy materials, why you should care about them, and what can be done to improve on this emerging and increasingly crucial component of the design process.

We especially need to thank the sponsors for making the Healthy Materials Summit such a success! All organizations involved made a valuable contribution that made this day AWESOME. Thanks to:

Healthy materials, the WELL standard, nutrition and air quality, and other aspects of all-pieces healthy workplaces were covered. If people are expected to be in buildings for so much of their lives, then it's important that we look at the buildings blocks of these new and existing structures.

As one of the greenest cities in the world, Boston is a prime example of the green building industry, and was the perfect location to hold an entire conference devoted to healthy materials.
