This tab features a collection of related information highlighting the importance of healthy living, safety, materials, systems and methods in our homes. We spend so much time in our homes and many feel they are safety havens keeping us away from the evils of the city or ‘out there’ evils. What I hope to highlight is that we must not only look outside and protect our selves from the exterior evils but also of the toxins and dangers we bring in to our homes daily. From the day we choose the perfect home we want to purchase, to the day the old furnace goes out and it is time to choose a new heating/cooling system. From the food we bring home to the products we buy to maintain and clean the home. Each choice we make requires vigilance and education and an understanding of the implications of each of these choices.
