I’m excited to share today’s podcast with you! This show originally aired two years ago, back in 2018, and Sheridan Foster, the founder of the digital media company, Elemental Green, is my guest. We have a great conversation today about how Elemental Green makes it easy for you to make sustainable choices that are better for you, which will also enhance your living experience.
Going green is a constant learning curve. Sheridan and I are passionate about everything related to green homes, and we both love connecting people with information. We hope you will enjoy learning about greening your home, and discovering how it will improve your health and wellness, and make your life a lot more comfortable!
The founding vision for Elemental Green

Elemental Green is a web-based resource

Green is not only about energy
Green is not only about energy. It is also about all the different materials that you bring into your home. So, becoming aware of the chemicals in the products you use, and of how sustainably the things you buy are manufactured and sourced, is a big part of living green.
Going green saves people
Many people think that going green is only about saving the planet. Sheridan clarifies that by explaining that the planet is simply a place for all of us, as people, to live, so going green is just as important for the wellbeing of people.
Helping people understand that the benefits are real
Both Sheridan and I are working hard to help people understand that the benefits of greening are real, and it is also beneficial for their families and their communities.
A great solution to a frustrating problem
Elemental Green was born out of the frustration that Sheridan experienced when trying to make sustainable decisions for her home-build. Every decision involved hours of research to find a list of solutions for ways for her builder to make things greener.
An educational tool
Initially, Sheridan saw Elemental Green as a potential educational tool for homeowners, and she also saw it as something that architects and builders could use as a simple resource.
Elemental Green is helpful because it keeps up to date with all the new materials that are coming out every day.
Elemental Green makes it easy to find products
Elemental Green makes it very easy for you to find green products. It features articles about various green topics, and share links to hook people up with the products that are related to the topic.
Good choices made easy
Sheridan understands that if it’s hard to make good choices, you’re going to go with what you already know. So Elemental Green is there to make it easier for you to make good, sustainable choices.
A better option
Once you know that there’s a better option, there’s no reason not to use it. And you gain so much by having a green, sustainable home.
Sustainable products are good quality
A sustainable product is a quality product, and it will last for a long time, so even if it costs a little more than a conventional product, it’s worth it!
