ECO-FRIENDLY PRACTICES

Here is a list of the ways we are eco-friendly and are helping to make a small impact on our planet, our city and our neighborhood:

      Method brand hand soaps

      Seventh Generation dishwashing detergents

  • we have lots of plants in our studio to promote fresh oxygen and to naturally filter our air

  • heat and a/c is kept at 72*F (winter) and 78*F (summer) to keep our energy footprint low

We abuse land because we regard it as a community belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
