mod*mom giveaway :: green depot get started kit

green depot is an environmentally friendly alternative to big box stores. green depot is committed to educating communities, helping consumers make the best choices, + training the next generation of green workers.

here are answers from sarah beatty, ceo + mom, founder of green depot.

1) what would you like most to tell mod*mom readers about greendepot?

green depot's mission is to make "green" building products easy. green depot is a 1-stop shop for people who want to build + maintain healthy, energy efficient, sustainable living environments.

I am a mom of 2 young children, ages 2 + 4. I founded
green depot in 2005, after a personal "wake up call". When I was pregnant with my 1st child I discovered mold contamination in my newly renovated home. A week before my delivery date, I was told my home may not be a safe living environment. I was shocked (and hormonal!). I had always considered myself an informed consumer. The concept that a health issue could have been the result of new construction I instigated was something I never expected. My interest has always been to create a safe + nurturing home environment for my children. At the time, there were not many resources out there. It was very difficult not only to obtain clear information but also to get the non-toxic "green"products/materials in my area. That lead me to create green depot. My hope is that green depot can be a resource for people (like me) who want to feel empowered to make the best, intelligent decisions for themselves and their families.

I want green depot to set the quality standard for green building products & services. We strive to be an authentic, trusted leader with great service from a passionate, knowledgeable, staff + high quality green products.

We currently have 4 locations that serve as informal showroom/resource centers for consumers + building professionals. We will be opening a
another resource center
this summer. We plan to open our 1st "retail" storefront in downtown New York City this fall. If we can do it "right", we will expand.

2) i'm interested in all the green depot products, but here are items i personally need for my home. would you like to talk about these?

toxic detection test kits

They can be very helpful in determining if there is a pre-existing issue. The good news is that there are new, more sophisticated kits coming soon that will offer a more detailed account of indoor air quality contaminants beyond "yes" and "no". I think they will be out in fall of 2008.

air + water filters

As far as air filters go, pay attention to the amount of space you expect the air filter to cover, so that you don't purchase a 200 sf filter to cover a 1000 sf area.

I had a water filter installed in my kitchen sink. Now I feel good knowing that my tap water is filtered, clean for particulates + carbon + that I am not wasting money on bottles or contributing to landfill! Flow reduction water filters are also a simple solution for conserving water.

solar attic fan

This is key. In order to keep healthy airflow in your home, provide ventilation in the right areas to keep the air flowing. Stagnant air leads to an unhealthy indoor living environment. In the summer, a solar attic fan will keep your house cooler. In the winter, it will help manage the air flow + heat loss.

eco-friendly pest control

Toxic pesticides are linked to so many health risks--why bring them into your living space? Even if they are in your garage or basement (or lawn), if you wear shoes inside your home, you can easily track the residue of those pesticides right into your living room. .

So, one of the best things one can do to improve the "health print" of your home is to leave your shoes at the door!


One of Green Depot's most popular items is Bonded Logic---insulation that is made out of pre-consumer denim "offcuts". It is an amazing "high performance" insulation--completely non-toxic, fire rated, good for sound attenuation, + environmentally a great solution for re-cycling denim "offcuts" that otherwise would have been sent to landfill. The key thing: stay away from the "pink" insulation--which contains Formaldehyde--a known carcinogen.

Some other thoughts:

When preparing a child's room use non toxic "NO VOC" paints + don't paint the week before the child will be in the room--give the room time to air out.
Use water based, low volatile oil compound caulks, adhesives + sealants.

If you install a wall-to-wall carpet, make sure the adhesive used is non toxic. Wall to wall carpet is a trap for dust mites, allergens + stuff tracked in.

When it comes to wood, avoid particle board that contains formaldehyde type glues. Many wood products (ie kitchen cabinet boxes) can use this wood + it off gasses into your indoor environment. Also, if you are going to finish a floor or cabinets, use non-toxic, water based finishes/sealants.

I would love to get the triple cartridge water filter since we drink so much water in this house! What an excellent idea to open up a store like this - I've been storing up links to all these green resources for the home and this is definitely going on it! :) Thanks for a great find!

By Blogger kevnjacks, at 5/12/2008 6:19 PM  

I'm torn between the countertop water filter (we rent) and the filtered shower head. A friend has one and it's amazing!

By Blogger Ursula, at 5/12/2008 7:53 PM  

Hello, The products I would love to have are an air filtration system since each member of our family suffers from allergies and sinus problems. I also like the IceStone
Pavers for outdoors! Please enter me in your drawing. I really appreciate it.....Thanks,Cindi

By Blogger windycindy, at 5/12/2008 9:24 PM  

Ummm...So many, it's hard to decide. I would have to say it is a tie between the shower head filter (in AZ we've got the worst water) and the Allergen Control Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner. What a great store! I'm excited to support a business with such a great mission: )

Wow! There is no shortage of products to choose from, especially if we were doing any remodelling. I really liked the sound of some of their pest control products like the wasp and hornet killer, among others. We deal with pests all summer long, and it would be nice to know that we were using a healthier alternative.

By Blogger Debbie#3, at 5/13/2008 4:52 AM

By Blogger Bebemiqui, at 5/13/2008 9:20 AM  

I love the idea of have an air and water filtration system. I can only imagine what is in my water. I try to filter it, but a built in system would be so much easier. As for the air, I know that the pollutants and pollen give me repiratory problems.

I'd love to try the carpet cleaner! thanks for the opportunity!

By Blogger Sierra, at 5/13/2008 9:27 AM  

I am interested in the bamboo molding. I would like to know if it comes unfinished so it can be painted or stained?

By Blogger pintolinda, at 5/13/2008 9:38 AM  

breathe easy cabinetry -- ours is very old and worn but I've been avoiding redo b/c of toxic varnish (and baby and children live here). Also avoiding much needed painting in house so no/low voc paints look great.

thanks, mod*mom. our whole family is a bundle of allergies, so the air and water filter system are both very attractive to us. it's great to also read about the caution against formaldehyde products - it's serious for people, esp. kids. that's also why i made sure the materials i used in designing my products are formaldehyde free, too.

Bonded Logic-
The insulation is an amazing idea. Levi Strauss originally made denim for tents! We have seriously taken denim to another level...and even though I love my favorite pair of jeans, it kills me to see how much is being thrown away. Thank god for companies like Green Depot, their progressive thinking will help the world a hundred times over.

I just hope people think about the overabundance of denim in landfills when they buy $15 Forever 21 jeans. Responsible consumerism is so the new black!

We're looking to paint our bathroom this month and I'd like to use the Moldex Mold-Inhibiting Paint (Eggshell). My bathroom has little ventilation so mold is a real problem in there.

We already have bamboo & cork flooring, but I love their natural carpets--and that they come in wall-to-wall or cut & bound options. I've been looking for an area rug for my living room--this might be the perfect option.

The filtered shower head would be wonderful. My husband takes such long showers, and this would help a lot!

By Blogger Mya, at 5/14/2008 8:45 AM  

I'm thinking about buying their bamboo floor. It's beautiful, and bamboo grows so much faster than hardwood, it's much greener. I also like their triple cartridge water filter because we drink a lot of water, and buying bottled water is not green at all. I would buy an aluminium or stainless steel bottle to bring with me.

By Blogger mel, at 5/14/2008 9:35 AM  

I've been trying to make as many changes as possible in efforts to live a greener lifestyle. Since my little one is crawling all over the place, the Carpet Control: Concentrated 3-in-1 Cleaner would be great to use. Thanks for running this contest!!

Thanks for the heads up on this site! I had never heard of them before. We moved into a rental last October and I swear there's no ventilation here. It just has this musty smell. We are constantly opening windows and running fans for air circulation. I would love one of those solar attic fans!! What an informative site, kinda scary what we don't know right?

Thank you for your giveaway and I am truly glad that I went to that site. We have been having a problem with mold and there are products out there that really do get the mildew but they also make me feel like I can't breathe when I am done using them. You just don't know how much I truly dread this because I get physically sick.

I went to the Green Depot and found this product - Moldex Mold Inhibitor, Cleaner & Disinfectant and it say's it has no bleach or ammonia.

I have bookmarked that site and will be trying this out.

It will be nice to use something that doesn't take my breath away.

Have a nice day!

By Blogger jessilynn, at 5/15/2008 5:32 PM  

Wow, this is a wonderful company! My husband is a builder and I will definitely tell him all about this website. My favorite product is Moldex Mold Inhibitor, Cleaner & Disinfectant--we have a major moisture problem here on Cape Cod and I think this cleaner would be really useful in our home (to be used in our basement, where we have significant mold problems!)

By Blogger SereneCat, at 5/15/2008 6:53 PM  

Definately the water filtration system. We have so much junk in our water - we have a well, and the coffee maker needs to be cleaned with vinegar every week or it doesn't work. Ugh.

The air filtration system due to my families allergies, or the allergen carpet cleaner, there are really too many to choose from :) Great Site.

I need to try the EcoLogic Carpet and Upholestery Shampoo. We have carpet in our living room and it gets so dirty, but I hate the thought of using chemicals to clean it since my kids play on the floor. Thanks for the information about green depot!

I like the yard safe insect repellent. I can't stand bugs but I don't like the chemicals so this would be perfect.

EcoLogic Apple & Aloe Hand & Body Soap since we use a lot of handsoap

I have had the opportunity to use the Pure Ayre odor eliminator. It is fantastic! It really works! I look forward to trying some of their other products.

By Blogger Betty N, at 5/16/2008 4:31 PM  

I would love the triple cartridge water filter as we have eliminated water bottles and our water tastes awful. We drink tons of it and this would really help. I could also use the insect repellant as we have tons of ants and I don't want toxins around my daughter especially.

By Blogger erinls, at 5/16/2008 9:11 PM  

I love so many things. The bamboo flooring, paver, the tripe cartridge water filter, the pest spray. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

The carpet cleaner would be my pick to try.

The web site is great. We just found out that we have radon emissions coming into our home, which has made us evaluate all the ways we can make our home healthier for us and our environment. We are planning to buy the solar attic fan; a terrific idea I had never even heard of.

Green Depot is new to me but if I can make any change, it would be learning to be more green. I try my best at home to use green products even if they are home made ones. Since this all new to me I'd am really interested in the toxic detection test kits.

This is really important to me , I just cant use alot of cleaners because of the smells and something like cleaning your carpet , well it defintly lingers more than just counter spray or disinfectant

I love their Compact Fluorescent Bulbs. I replaced all the bulbs in my house with them. They cut back on all the electricity and last so much longer then regular bulbs. I also want to try their EcoSMART Botanicals bug killers. I love the fact this companys focus is on the environment.

By Blogger mjkristi23, at 5/28/2008 2:35 PM  

Right now, the paints and Acriglaze because of a current project I'm considering; long term, the water and air filters both sound great.
What a great concept - I really hope they can expand to more locations; a web presence is great but it'll be hard to break in on the big box stores' hold on the market. :-( I had never heard of Green Depot til now but I'm so glad I have! Thank you!

By Anonymous Kelly, at 5/28/2008 3:02 PM

The "UltraTouch recycled cotton denim insulation for use in new construction and remodels. Safe to handle: treated with non-toxic borates. Contains no formaldehyde or other skin or respiratory irritants".I am finishing my basement and this will be perfect! I love that its made of recycled denim.
