ASPIRE Design + Home: Webinar on Environmental Injustice


ASPIRE Design + Home: Webinar on Environmental Injustice
February 24, 1:00 pm EST

Join us Wednesday, February 24th at 1:00pm EST for an ASPIRE Design + Home webinar with industry leaders and Sustainable Furnishings Council Ambassadors Laura Hodges, Laurence CarrJohn Douglas Eason, and Breegan Jane. This group of established interior designers will be joined by SFC’s Executive Director, Susan Inglis to discuss the climate of America’s environmental injustices.

This webinar is focused on what we can do as a community to take the steps in our businesses or homes to crusade for a healthier planet. 


Since the murder of George Floyd last summer, we are constantly reminded that environmental justice should be a focus for each of us. We must use our platforms to shine a light on environmental injustices in our communities, such as the fact that BIPOC communities have much higher exposure rates to air pollution, closer proximity to landfills, and more lead contaminated tap water.

So, is racism the root cause of climate change? No, but its persistence in our society is a key part of an extractive, exploitative and inequitable economic system, which is unsustainable. We need a more ecological and egalitarian model. The time to transition to a fair, clean energy economy is now.
