Is Your Home Making You Sick? This is the question which led to Green Nest's inception in 2003. Lisa, a former interior designer, started feeling run down and tired all of the time. She was well aware of the abundance of toxic materials that exist in homes today from her experience as an interior designer. Lisa then began a journey in search of answers. After much research and numerous doctor visits, she came to the conclusion that her hosue and products within the home were making her sick!
It was through her research that Lisa decided to become a certified Bau-biologist (building Biology - a study derived from Germany which encompasses how buildings impact life and the living environment). With her B.A. from Arizona State University, already under her belt, she then decided to incorporate her two passions in life - interior design and health. After making the necessary adjustments in their home, her health gradually became better and she and her husband Ron decided to help other people in their endless eforts to attain optimal health.

"A wise rabbi was walking along a road when he saw a man planting a tree. The rabbi asked him, 'How many years will it take for this tree to bear fruit?' The man answered that it would take seventy years. The rabbi asked 'Are you so fit and strong that you expect to live that long and eat its fruit?' The man answered, 'I found a fruitful world because my forefathers planted for me. So I will do the same for my children.'" ~ Midrashi
"Our fulfillment is not in isolated human grandeur, but in our intimacy with the larger Earth community, for this is also the larger dimension of our being...It is a question of interior richness within our own personalities, of shared understanding with others, of a concern that reaches our to all the living beings of the Earth, and in some manner out to the distant starts in the heavens." ~ Brian Swimme
