Chemical Sensitivity and the new home building process – Free CE webinar.
- Date: December 9
- Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET
Since the mid 1990’s, Green building professionals have focused on energy efficiency and global environmental concerns as the driving forces for consumer demands. However, consumers have become discouraged by the green standards because there is no focus on the health of the human occupant. Sick building syndrome, environmental illness, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity…These are real medical issues that families are facing because of the built environment they are surrounded with. With an enormous push into healthier eating, i.e.. gluten-free, low-carb, vegetarian, etc, consumers are now demanding a healthy HOME as well as a healthy body. Everyone CAN build a healthy home…as long as they know what to ask for.
