Trudy’s Story

Trudy’s Story

Trudy Dujardin’s passion for green design came out of her desire to live in health and harmony with the earth.  In 1993, she built her first Holistic House ™ on the harbor on Nantucket Island, determined to make it a haven for healthy living and minimize its impact on a fragile island ecosystem.  Later, in an ironic twist of fate, she developed Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, resulting from exposure to pesticides on a farm as a child, and years of working in unhealthy construction sites.  Fortunately, her home on the island was a clean environment where her body could heal.

Today, as an award-winning designer and national expert on non-toxic building materials, she has blended her own quest for health and meaning with the inner peace that comes from doing the right thing, for her clients, and for the planet.
