Clarus Interior Consultants

Thank you Pooja for a great article on Green Design. You have put the information on ratings by IGBC and GRIHA very well.
We are strong believers of Green and Sustainable design and being an Interior Consultants we follow sustainable design for the Interiors of the House using products that have very low or non-VOC (volatile organic compounds) content. Every product that we use in our Interiors are either recyclable or reusable. By using low in carbon footprint adhesives, polishes and paints and using more of indoor plants we enhance the air quality of the surroundings. As far as possible we use energy efficient equipments.
I would love to read more articles on the Green and Sustainable design.
