Greenspec reviews Urban Eco Chic

Brian Murphy of Greenspec, a UK Website dedicated to green building materials, wrote to Oliver Heath praising Urban Eco Chic:

"Your approach, the book structure and format is so right: small nuggets of information, delivered by graphically coded topic bullet points, its so accessible. I am recommending it to interior design and furniture design students.

The scope of coverage is very broad from building/finishing materials through to household goods and appliances which ensures your readers get something to think about every time they consider any household purchase.

Your constant reminders to consider reclaim and reuse and find locally is very refreshing and you demonstrate through your work and illustrations shows how it works. I am inspired by some of your pictures thinking about a much needed garden office and thinking about dismantling pallets for book shelving.

When you are in the public eye it means whatever you do will be scruitinised, all the more reason for getting it right, and I think you have, excellent job. Long may it stay on my desk."

Make sure to check out thehotlovemovement.com, an urban fashion line including supersoft organic tees, tanks, hoodies, and more. We go on the philosophy that we need to take responsibility of our world — we use water based dyes and sweatshop free cotton. We also carry an array of messenger bags made out of bamboo and recycled billboard vinyl. Proceeds from sales go to fund projects in underprivileged areas for sustainable infrastructure projects.

I've heard about this book, but I haven't read it yet. I think the book can be useful. I might get information for making my home more eco-friendly. Especially today, we are all aware of saving the Earth. That's why there are lots of eco-friendly products that have been promoted. Like in Miami, roofing are also eco-friendly. You can find those in reputable roofing companies in Miami.
