EcoLogic Life began in 2007 when founder and manager Cynthia Grier made a trip to Ojai and Ventura County, CA and recognized the strong desire of the people to shift their lifestyle to a much more sustainable way of living. She set out with a mission... to make eco-friendly building materials accessible, and to teach ways of creating beautiful, healthy, affordable environments that promote sustainability and can be a source of well being.

Cynthia Grier has been a proponent of environmental causes for many years, beginning with Environmental Studies courses in college. She received her degree in Interior Environmental Design and began her career as an Interior Designer. She then worked many years as a manufacturer's representative for a variety of building materials and finishes, assisting architects, designers and contractors with design and technical information. During that time, she built two new homes of her own with conventional building materials. She became very ill and it took a few years to determine that it was her homes, with their toxic finishes and materials, which were making her ill. By changing her environment and surrounding herself with natural and healthy alternatives, she has regained her health.

Cynthia is a Build It Green Certified Green Building Professional, a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), the Natural Building Network, and the Institute for Bau-Biologie* and Ecology. She is currently studying for her Certification as a Bau-Biologie (Building Biology) Practitioner. And, she sits on the Ojai Valley Green Coalition - Built Environment Council where she has helped to design and assemble a mock green home in both the Ojai Valley Museum and the Community Services of Ventura County Green Center, and is an Editorial Advisor for Natural Home Magazine.

Cynthia is currently active in remodeling projects for residential and commercial spaces, and also in researching, writing about and promoting ecohealthy building and sustainability commitments of ecotourisim resorts, destinations and other lodging and restaurants. Cynthia is passionate about sharing her knowledge of healthy, eco-friendly building. She is available for speaking/teaching engagements, consultations on material selection & specification, space planning & design, and will compile written articles for any media.
