Ever wonder where you can find that gorgeous tile featured on Inhabitat, remodel your kitchen as organically as the food you prepare in it, or how to complete a Deep Energy Retrofit to your home? The Amicus Green Building Center is a home improvement store focused exclusively on truly sustainable — we call it “deep green”—building materials and expertise.
The word "amicus" means friend in Latin. We believe this embodies what we represent and strive for—that all of our products, principles, and practices are friendly to you, your building, wallet, future, and planet. The spaces we create are healthy (avoiding toxins and bothersome chemicals); save precious energy and water resources and money; reduce pollution; allow occupants with limited mobility to remain independent; and celebrate local manufacturing and jobs. But we are much more than tools and parts. We help homeowners install rain gardens, get rid of mosquitoes without poisons, paint without making their kids sick, install flooring that would make panda bears proud, and so much more.
We also show that green building can take on all kinds of looks and styles—most of the time you don’t even realize it’s better for us and our planet.
We strive to walk the walk to become a truly sustainable company in all facets of our operations, including:
The Amicus Green team.
If we are so lucky as to receive this honor, we would use the funds to upgrade our creaky computer systems, so we can work with more great homeowners more effectively.
