Chez Laurence With Laurence Carr
EarthX and boutique sustainability and wellness-focused interior design firm Laurence Carr Inc are proud to announce their original video series, Chez Laurence, premiering Tuesday May 26th at 7pm CDT/ 8pm EST on EarthxTV
Interior Designer and Expert in Circular Design, Laurence Carr, welcomes representatives from some of the world’s foremost pioneers in circularity from the manufacturing, furniture, and textile industries for candid conversations about the importance of sustainability and regenerative approaches to the design process. Through their innovative practices, they’re actively helping to slow and aim to reverse the interior and furnishing industry’s impact on climate change.
Carr explains, “Circularity specifically refers to how resource cycles work, describing an industrial system that promotes reuse, upcycling (regeneration), and the elimination of waste.
All circular practices are sustainable, but not all sustainable initiatives are circular. The reason I am such an advocate of circularity is because I believe it is the model that best promotes sustainability for the construction and design industries.”
Each brand highlighted in this series has embraced circular practices that are restorative and regenerative by nature. They seek to replace the end-of-life concept with restoration, shift toward renewable energy, eliminate the use of toxic chemicals, and importantly, they aim to design waste out of the process entirely. These brands are members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, a non-profit coalition of manufacturers, retailers and designers dedicated to raising awareness and expanding the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry.
Chez Laurence premieres on May 26th at 5pm PDT / 7pm CDT / 8pm EST on EarthxTV. It will also be available on-demand beginning 24 hours. Click here to view the promo trailer and learn more.
