With the Healthy Materials Summit 2016 later this month, it's time to get to know the speakers. This professional gathering event held at Google's Kendall Square HQ in Cambridge, MA, covers all grounds for understanding healthy materials in the construction process, and why you should care about it. The ultimate goal of the Healthy Materials Summit is to bring the issues relating to building materials into light, in hopes to inspire commercial leaders, designers, and builders, and manufacturers and product vendors to increase their supply and demand of transparent, healthy building materials and products.
