Mindful Materials Workshop  by USGBC MA
Event Description

If we change the way products are made and the way buildings are designed, we can positively impact the health of the population and the planet.

Please come to learn about how the Mindful Materials program is creating a market movement that will simplify the material health/product transparency specifications for the A&D community.

This event will show how the Mindful Materials program can create a community between architects, designers, contractors, manufacturers, and owners so that we can all design with intent for the health of our people and our planet. Learn how manufacturers have invested in programs like C2C, HPD, EPD and Declare so that design professionals know more about the materials that we specify.
