ECO Building Resource is a supply base for consumers, contractors and builders who wish to locate environmentally sound and healthy building products and accoutrements.
ECO Building Resource has undertaken the sourcing and reviewing of materials to ensure they are safe for people and the planet.
Eco Building Resource is owned and operated by Kevin Royce who has spent over 25 years in the building materials industry gaining an extensive knowledge of a wide range of products and their applications with the primary focus being on interior finishing products. During his last position as general manager of a major building supplier in Woodbridge, Ontario Kevin began to receive many inquiries for LEED compliant products from builders and contractors. It was then when Kevin came to realize that it is a challenge for people to find environmentally safe building products
Kevin is also a husband and father with two teenage boys who keep him extremely busy with outdoor activities and sports. During his leisure time volunteering as a coach of a minor hockey team Kevin became aware of environmental sensitivities when he observed 4 of his 13 young players required puffers to deal with their asthma and allergies, the cause of which is primarily the toxins we breathe in our day to day lives.
From these experiences Kevin identified a critical need for green building products, so ECO Building Resource was born… Toronto’s only green building supply store!
