Creating safe havens for babies
As much as we like to deny about poor air quality these days, one thing for sure, our babies will be the fragile victims. Many homes are stocked with chlorox, insect repellent/ aerosol, bathroom cleaning products, detergents etc with unspecified chemicals. A lot of the building materials surrounding us also releases molecules of dangerous gaseous. Our indoor air really, is much more polluted than outdoor air. Wouldn't it be nice if the air we breathe inside is akin to forest greens and fresh sea breeze? Not only within our homes and offices, sustainable design and the right materials used are important for Newborn ICU, hospitals, clinics etc. This will reduce airborne infection, enhances ambience and providing healthier environment.
