Mairi Beautyman is senior editor at TreeHugger and heads up the Living category, in addition to tackling feature projects for the site.
With a background in literature, art, design, and architecture, Mairi had sustainability hammered in at a young age during a childhood in rural Western Massachusetts. Her dog ate what was in the 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...Morocco...Indonesia...Nicaragua...for extended surf trips, but usually calls Berlin 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, Slow Travel Berlin, Time Out Berlin, Azure Magazine, and The Robb Report.
