Pure Green is brought to you by a dedicated team of professionals, lead by Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Celine MacKay. Celine is also a partner in Sustain, a business that specializes in products for building, decorating and living green.
Pure Green Magazine was created out of Celine's love for green design and her firm belief that eco interiors can be every bit as stylish. "I enjoy the challenge of sourcing vintage pieces, local organic produce, green building products or upcycling unwanted pieces. I have unbelievable respect for nature and as a result feel very passionately about preserving it, and I'm very proud of the lifestyle my family and I have created. Thank you for reading Pure Green Magazine and sharing that passion with me!"

"Living green boils down to respect. Respect for one's health and quality of life, and respect for all the Earth and creation."
“I believe that living green is acknowledging every single choice, big or small, that you make on a daily basis that will undoubtedly improve our environment.”
“To me, living green means making the effort (within your means) to be respectful of what you’re taking and of what you’re giving back - whether it’s with food, products, or lifestyle.”
“To me, living green means respecting and loving your environment. At home we take small steps to do what we can; recycling, hanging laundry outside in the summer, making green choices at the market, cleaning with eco-friendly products, etc... ”
“Living green means remaining conscious of what is happening in the world around us, and taking what steps (small and large) we can take to preserve the resources we have.”
