Lewis has been with New Living since the day we started on one aisle of Wagner Hardware. He was the former manager of the Hardware store our business incubated inside of, and jumped at the opportunity to help nurture the market for green, healthy homes in Houston. In 2010, Lewis became a LEED (Leadership and Environmental Design) Accredited Professional, and New Living’s in-house product expert. However, Lewis believes there are many things more necessary than products to create a green home. “I have always been more interested in the installation side of sustainable flooring. I believe this is where I can have the greatest impact. Installers rarely think about the harm they are causing themselves (over a lifetime) from using finishes laden with toxins on a daily basis. Ruth Jeballi’s Company has been in business for over 26 years and brings a world of knowledge to the industry– ranging from refinishing, custom hardwoods, and installations.
