New Living breathes life into the great indoors with locally made, nontoxic, and sustainable house, bedding, and cleaning products. Shellac the walls of your house or yurt with a vibrant hue from New Living's collection of nontoxic paint with little or no VOCs ($33-$36+/gal.), then settle down on a durable, nontoxic spring coil mattress from Keetsa ($419-$839, depending on size). Recent victims of targeted pillow theft will appreciate the store’s selection of natural pillows ($46-$209). Wipe away outsized footprints left on walls and ceilings by less eco-friendly friends with a nontoxic all-purpose cleaner, locally bottled in store ($5.95/20 oz.).

New Living has been designated a certified B Corporation for its commitment to social, economic, and environmental awareness. It ensures all products are made by companies that promote sustainability and fair-labor business practices. With a friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand at all times, customers can feel comfortable and confident in their shopping selections, instead of relying on urban legends about bamboo floors that attract feral pandas.

Having resolved at a young age to pursue his passion for green building, Jeff Kaplan created the Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Program when he was just 21 years old. In late 2007, Jeff started New Living, a green building and home store whose high environmental standards earned the shop a B Corporation certification. Today, New Living sells exclusively eco-friendly products from ethical businesses, stimulating the local green economy while making green materials more affordable and accessible. Staff members passionate about responsible consumerism often help customers interested in repurposing and refinishing items. Kaplan's efforts at revitalizing Houston's small businesses and affinity for wearing capes earned him the title of Green Hero from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Customer Reviews

Excellent class! I learned a lot about refinishing techniques. It was a great plus that the products were not toxic! I will definitely use them and their products again!

Very informative and helpful.
Marianne B. · October 13, 2012
We really enjoyed the class. The instructor gave us some very helpful tips on how to refinish the particular piece we brought in. He also gave us hands-on work to do on painting and staining, which was helpful, as well as an introduction to the use of nontoxic products for refinishing. Thanks!
