It’s our hope that these Sunday Link Up posts are a little reprieve in your weekend. However, with the 6, yes 6 mass shootings that happened in the US this past week, we need to be highly aware that while reprives are important for mental health, we can’t become desensitized. We know explicitly that the Buffalo shooting was a direct result of racism and white supremacy and the Orange county shooting was also a hate crime.

The value of LEED is clear: it provides an objective, third-party standard for determining how green a building or interior is – something that will help us all achieve our goals for a healthier planet.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. When we hear “LEED” we are usually thinking about one of two things: it’s either about the design or the designer. Let’s break that down, and talk about greenwashing and brand along the way.
