Bob Villa talks with Bernadette Upton of Eco-Decor about her involvement with the American Lung Association's Baby's Breath program and how their key prescriptions for healthy indoor air were applied in the showhouse. They discuss the healthy features of the baby's bathroom, including the use of no VOC (volatile organic compound) paints in the colorful mural. Only all-natural products are used in the baby's space-ceramic tile, marble, natural wood, cotton-to maintain the quality of the air young lungs will breathe.
So much opportunity exists today to align our homes with a healthier lifestyle, family and planet as beautiful products of the highest quality are infusing shopping and lifestyle with a new level of social and environmental consciousness. It's the fun, hip, cool, stylish, way to make a difference and it's right here right now.
Note: Bernadette's portion of the interview appears in segments three and four of this four part radio interview.
The idea of creating stylish and earth-friendly indoor environments is embraced by the more than 20 interior designers participating in the American Lung Association of Florida's showhouse in West Palm Beach.
When it comes to contaminated indoor air, babies and children are among the most vulnerable to potential health problems, so reduce the toxins that surround them by selecting furniture and soft goods that are fit to breathe.
