Increasing the adoption of healthier building products and practices can lead to a meaningful decrease of known harmful chemicals in buildings, positively impacting inhabitants’ health and well-being.

If we all work together we can reduce the use of harmful chemicals and improve health and the environment worldwide.


The series is brought to you by the Green Science Policy Institute, a nonprofit organization that provides unbiased scientific information to government, industry, and non-governmental organizations to facilitate more informed decision-making about chemicals used in everyday products in order to protect health and the environment worldwide.
