The Environment's Health is Your Health Too!
We take for granted that our schools are healthy environments for
our children to spend the day in while learning, playing and
socializing. Parents trust the health and safety, as well as the
education, of their children to school administrators and teachers.
Walking down those shiny hallways each morning, does anyone think
about how they got that way? Was the cleaning solution non-toxic? Is
the maintenance team mindful of how cleaning materials affect the
air that children breathe? Are chemicals being used to control pests
within the school that might effect indoor air quality or seep into
water sources? How are choices made about procurement?
Hopefully, your school takes pride in providing safe alternatives to
the prevalent toxic choices on the market. Schools that are careful
to avoid hazardous chemicals, radon levels, formaldehyde off-gassing
and lead levels in school environments create safer places to learn.
A healthy environment makes you feel alive and energetic. Healthy
school environments cultivate learners with a greater ability to
attend to lessons and achieve knowledge.
Learn more about the hidden costs of environmental toxics and the
steps to make your schools the healthiest place for our future
generations to learn good life habits.
