Interior Design Business Podcast Episode 99: True Green with Special Guest Megan Thompson of IDGreenList.com

How do you tell the difference between honest sustainable companies and those that are trying to trick you with greenwashing in their marketing?

This is just one of many questions you might have if you’re thinking about going green in your interior design business, so I’ve recruited the help of an expert to answer some of those questions and point you in the right direction. 

Megan Thompson has been a part of the IDBA program for many years as she’s built her design business the way she wanted. Now she’s pursuing her passion: empowering other designers to practice sustainable design. 

In this episode, we’re talking about how interior design impacts the planet through excessive waste and contributions to global emissions and what you can do to make a difference. 

If you want to go green but you don’t know where to start, Megan’s got you covered. She’s sharing simple solutions that you can start implementing today to make your business more sustainable.

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • A shocking statistic that reveals the emissions produced by the interior design industry
  • How many tons of furniture end up in landfill each year 
  • What you can do to improve your sustainability
  • Lies you’ve been told about sustainability in interior design 
  • Whether or not it costs more to choose sustainable options 
  • A quick and easy trick to know if a product is really “green” or not 
  • How you can protect your clients’ health by choosing the right products 

As Anne Marie Bonneau said, “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” The same goes for sustainable interior design. Imagine the difference we could make if we all started making small changes to the way we practice business. I hope this episode gets you thinking about what you can do to make your process more sustainable.
