We are committed to human and environmental health.
The owner and tenants of the Breathe Building are committed to human and environmental health, so they were very deliberate about the selection of non-toxic building materials. Whenever possible we sourced products that are locally or regionally manufactured and salvaged or recycled. As we constructed the Breathe Building, we vetted every product we installed against the Living Building Challenge's Red List. There were times we had to install a product that contained Red List ingredients becuase there was not a reasonable alternative; however, we also had the opportunity to work with manufacturers who are developing cutting-edge green building products.
