What Makes a Baby's Nursery or Child's Classroom Healthy?

Friday, November 6, 2009 General News J E 4

ATLANTA, Nov. 5 The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute's (GEI) Greenbuild exhibit features a classroom and nursery constructed completely out of GREENGUARD Certified low-emitting products from flooring to the walls and everything inside. Products are certified to stringent chemical emission standards helping achieve healthier indoor environments for living and learning.


WHAT: A fully built and outfitted nursery with a crib, changing table and children's play furniture.

A typical school environment constructed and furnished with desks, chairs, a table, bookcase, laptop and a white board.

Every product featured in the exhibit is GREENGUARD Certified.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 10th, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Wednesday, November 11th, 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Thursday, November 12th, 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

WHERE: Booth #924 - Greenbuild 2009, Phoenix, AZ

WHY: Nearly 55 million people in the United States spend their time in school buildings, approximately half of which have been identified as having poor indoor air quality. Additionally, children spend more than 85 percent of their time indoors where they breathe air that is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside air, being exposed to harmful chemicals and pollutants. Providing healthy and high-performance homes and learning environments through good indoor air quality is critical for the well-being of our children.

WHAT ELSE: Meet noted indoor air quality expert Dr. Marilyn Black who can address the scientific advances in improved indoor air quality and GEI's Henning Bloech, who can discuss the organization's growth in an era of close attention to better indoor air quality because of its health and productivity benefits.
