                                              Why do we need Healthy-n-Green™?

"There is virtually no chronic illness which is directly or indirectly unaffected by our environment".
                                                  Surgeon General 1979 report

We spend up to 90% of our times indoors where the indoor air quality is typically 3 to 5 times more polluted (and up to 1000 times) than the outside air. “Healthy-n-Green is….Healthy Indoor Air” will empower our children with knowledge to create healthy-n-green indoor environments. Learning about health symptoms caused by poor indoor air quality, investigating their own indoor environments and making necessary changes are key to making our world healthy-n-green, one choice at a time.
