WHO WE ARE —
How fiberfort began...
It truly started with the right ingredients or the wrong ingredients if you will
- 1 gallon or so of VOCs
- a bushel of waste
- 1 entrepneur
Hi my name is Kim.I started Fiberfort with a mission to make a healthier home and a greener world. I was raised to be an earth concious person. I was often thinking of new ideas to fix problems that affected the planet. At the age of 28 I found myself in the house painting industry. I became very aware of the toxins we consistently put in our homes. I breathed it everyday for 8 hours a day and worried about what longterm affects this might have on me and my clients. Not only that but I was continually cleaning excess paint out of brushes and rollers into the sewers. I knew I wanted to change things and through my research found an article about hempcrete. As I read about all of the amazing properties this eco friendly building material had, I knew I would be refocusing my energy on something more positive.
My journey has taken me through training with Hempitecture, hosting a booth at arts beats and eats, building a hempcrete model, and training with Americhanvre. It is just the beginning of what is to come. I look forward to building and teaching people about the abilities of hempcrete and how it can help change the world for the better. I feel honored to be a part of the hemp building family.
