WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO US
The Step Beyond Green To Healthy initiative was founded in 2011 by Jonathan Synovic. It was built inside of his company Source 1 Project Solutions, Inc which was, at the time, was a full service Design/Build firm. His vision included working closely with his clients to incorporate their ideas and goals into every phase of the project. During discussions with clients, the topic of health concerns and chemical sensitivities was reoccurring. This prompted the Step Beyond Green To Healthy initiative to look into the composition of building materials and processes. His team discovered that many of the building products used today give off chemicals that make the air quality in people's homes unhealthy. Studies indicate that the unhealthy homes are making adults, kids, and elderly individuals ill and causing a myriad of medical conditions to occur.
They also discovered that "green" and eco-friendly materials and products sometimes did not equate to "healthy". Using Synovic's design and building experience coupled with years of research from outside companies, they now incorporate healthy materials, products and processes into their company culture and the design and build process.
Today, Step beyond Green to Healthy has out grown just one company and is now certifying builders, remodelers, trade contractors and manufacturers. Today our clients are demanding better environments to live and work in. The Step Beyond Green to Healthy certification program allows consumers to know when they select one of our team members or products they are creating that healthier environment.
