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.
Brent Ehrlich of BuildingGreen is the products & materials specialist and serves as products editor, where he researches and writes about green building products, materials, and their health and environmental impacts. He also leads a team of editors who select industry-leading products for the company's BuildingGreen Approved program on Designer Pages. A LEED AP BC+D, he has been researching and writing about green building for more than a decade, but has also taught college composition, copy edited science journals, worked as a carpenter, and managed a large commercial kitchen in the Colorado Rockies.
