Mairi Beautyman is senior editor at TreeHugger.com and PlanetGreen.com. With a background flirting with literature, art, design, and architecture, she first learned about sustainability during an earth-conscious childhood in Western Massachusetts. Her dog ate what was in her organic lunch box--until she embraced her calling. Now she likes thinking about materials that don't stick around, and believes the best green design is also nice to look at. She tends to wander off...say Morocco for extended surf trips...but usually calls Berlin, Germany home.
Mairi is also a regular contributor to Interior Design magazine, and has written for publications including The Huffington Post, A Hedonist's Guide to Marrakech, Wired, Art News, Architectural Record, and The Robb Report.
