A sustainable home should be…

  • Ergonomic – comfortable and healthy for people
  • Economical – cost effective to buy and to operate
  • Ecological – good for the planet (or at least, a little less bad)

My name is Matthew Cutler-Welsh. I care about people and I care about the planet.

Ever since listening to my first podcasts while running to work, I’ve wanted to create a podcast about living in a healthy and sustainable environment.

How I can help


Designing and building a new home or renovating an existing one can be a daunting process.

If there’s something about the building process that you’re worried about, want more information about, or just want a friendly, independent look over your plans, I’d love to hear from you.

Designers and Builders

You have a very important role to play in making a better place to live. I believe strongly that the world needs more good desingers and good builders doing good work.

What’s currently holding you back?

What’s one thing you’d love to change about your design or building business so that you can spend more time doing what you’re passionate about and have more impact on more people?

I’d love to help get your message out or connect you with the right clients.

If you’re a sustainable designer or green builder and think you should be on this list, I’d love to hear from you and promote what you do.

Product Suppliers

People can’t create better places to live without better products. I’m interested in…

  • Insulation products
  • Ventilation systems
  • Heating systems
  • Building wraps and vapour barriers
  • Low VOC paints and finishes
  • Solar power technology
  • Efficient lighting
  • Home automation
  • Sustainably sourced materials
  • ..And more

If you have a product that could genuinely help people to make a better home, please get in touch. I like to highlight materials and products that I believe in, on the podcast.
