HOME. IMPROVEMENT. These two words conjure up images of airborne dust (read: Sweeping with the Enemy), toxic debris, lead (read: Are You Being MisLEAD?), mold fears and oh, yeah…VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Not exactly what we’d call improving your home. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Taking the proper precautions with dust and choosing zero and low VOC’s options can pay huge dividends on the long-term health of yourself and loved ones living in the home (yes, even your furry friends). Here is a wonderful infographic from our friends at Healthy Child to help you get started in the right direction on your next home improvement project! Oh, and check out my children’s book, My Body My House! It’s a perfect tale for your little ones (ages 4-6) to teach them the importance of living in harmony with our surroundings at an early age!
