Material Collections

Natural and Healthy

Natural materials offer an exciting source of healthier alternatives to commonly used synthetic products. These collections of bio-based products include natural insulations, structural materials, packaging, foams, and fibers. Using bio-based alternatives such as these benefits human health, as many natural materials are free from toxic additives like flame retardants. Because they biodegrade at the end of their life, these materials benefit the health of the environment as well. Some of the products in these collections are available to view in person at the Donghia healthier Materials Library at Parsons.
