“One of the primary goals of the Living Building Challenge is to eliminate the use of known toxins in products installed in the built environment.  If it is harmful to life – human, animal, or ecological do not use it in the built environment or anywhere else if at all possible.  Over the course of two Living Buildings, both completed in 2016, and aspiring to certification over the next eighteen to twenty-four months, Wright Builders Inc. has had a unique opportunity to work inside this complete and largely unexplored new world of materials research, vetting, documentation and advocacy.”
