With the continuing growth of environmental-consciousness and the awareness of the effects that global warming and unsustainable development have on human health, people are looking for ways to not only create safe and healthy environments for their families at home, but also work and school. Considering most of a child's lifetime outside of the home is at school, shouldn't the educational environment be a safe, healthy environment and not one where chemcial cleaners, unnatural, unhealthy meals and poor indoor air quality inhibit the quality of their education? Eco-Home Design is broadening its focus from creating healthy environments not just in the home and office, but in the educational arene as well. There are many things that can be done to develop a more sustainable, natural, toxic-free campus and Eco-Home Design is committed to encouraging the development of these schools across the country.
