The founder of Green Depot, Sarah Beatty, was recently interviewed by Living Shelter Design architects, who run a podcast and radio interviews.
Sarah Beatty founded Green Depot in 2005 with a mission: to make green living, green products, and building solutions accessible affordable and gratifying. Since then, Green Depot has supplied hundreds of projects, including Harvard University, the New School, Albany Public Libraries, the city of Chicago, and the Capitol Building in Washington. Green Depot educates the building trade and consumers about “what green means” every day–via their proprietary CLEAR filter, FLIP It Green service, community programs and events. Earth Day New York and the NRDC awarded Sarah their 2009 Business Leader of the Year Award. She is a member of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, LEED AP, and has a B.A. from Harvard College. Click here to read more from Sarah’s bio.
According to their website, Living Shelter Design is a small, woman-owned architectural firm founded by Terry Phelan in 1992 that specializes in personal service to create delightful homes and cottage communities. Living Shelter Design has promoted sustainable building practices since 1994, integrating old-world materials and methods into energy efficient design concepts and traditional forms. L.S.D. follows what they call “EcoLogical Design,” which they describe as combining “Eco – ecology and economy – and Logical – as what makes sense.”
As we’ve been highlighting recently, Green Depot and Ecohaus just merged, giving both of the companies a wider national presence. In the interview, Terry Phelan “talks with Green Depot owner Sarah Beatty about how, through this collaboration, she hopes to strengthen residential green building on a national scale.”
