Eco-Friendly Black Designer: Courtney Sloane

Looking for a stylish new sustainable look for your home? Want to support a black designer? You can have the both! Owner of New York City based Alternative Design, Inc., Courtney Sloane has been on the scene for years, I have seen her work featured in several design books and magazines. She has been featured on Oprah! and America's Next Top Model. She was recently featured in Black Enterprise Magazine for her contribution to green design. Ms. Sloane became interested in sustainable design in 1993 after a trip to Costa Rica, in which she was inspired by its great beauty. In the article she provides a few quick tips on creating an eco-friendly home and promotes her exciting new retail establishment that she bills as a lifestyle center- Sloane Square in New Jersey City, New Jersey that will be opening later this year.

Will someone in Jersey share the good word on Sloan Square when it opens?

Peace.

I was so proud of Black Enterprise's April 08 issue on green businesses. I sure wish I was closer to the businesses they promoted.
