Conscious Design Media
Did you happen to see a new partnership with Conscious Design Media and the post about Made by Choice?
An explanation might be in order. I’m excited to tell you that I’ve been working on a wonderful project since this summer, and we are finally ready to tell the world what it is. Introducing Conscious Design Media, a new media company focusing on clean indoor air.
Sign up for the Conscious Design Media newsletter to be among the first ones to know when we launch.
But why a media company about…. air? Glad you asked.The sad news is that toxic indoor air quality is the 12th leading cause of death in the world. The pollutants can be even worse indoors than outside. And yet - we spend 90% of our time indoors. We need to take action now. #IAQdesign Click To Tweet
Conscious Design Media’s mission is to improve indoor air quality and the quality of lives for millions by creating real change across different industries. It all starts with a deep understanding of the current risks, contributing factors, and how we can start changing them.
Conscious Design Media was founded in the UK two months ago by Robert John, who also owns Terraform Global. He has a powerful personal story – he went from being severely asthmatic as a child, into studying everything he could about indoor air quality and basically “curing himself” and then becoming an indoor air quality expert.
Terraform has a testing lab in Finland, where they can test materials for their toxicity levels. While Conscious Design Media will work closely with Terraform, and we can utilize their scientists and experts, it is a separate company with a mission to raise awareness to clean indoor air among consumers and offer concrete help for professionals in architecture, building, home furnishings, and design.
Conscious Design Media’s digital media platform will launch next year, but we would like to get warmed up already now.
