Is your indoor space green enough?

Of course I don't mean the color green, but you may not know that Green is also good for the eyes (as we had been taught as a child).

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ) refers to the quality of the air and environment inside buildings, based on pollutant concentrations and conditions that can affect the health, comfort and performance of occupants -- including temperature, relative humidity, light, sound and other factors. So what makes the biggest coverage of the building? Technically speaking, the walls although many external buildings are using glass to invite the natural lights. But why do you think you get migraine when sitting too long in your office, or feeling stuffy even within an air-conditioned space? It's the particles of chemicals around us that's causing it. So what do we do about it?
