Indoor pollution

According to a study by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we spend more than 80% of our lives indoors where indoor air can be up to 100 times more toxic than outdoor air.

Exposure to pollutants in enclosed spaces can cause a number of symptoms, such as headaches, drowsiness, nausea, eye, nose and throat irritation, coughing, fatigue, allergies and asthma attacks.

There are numerous potentially toxic and allergenic substances indoors. Among these are some building materials and furniture, chemical detergents, as well as mould and pollen, all present where we spend so much of our time, at home and at work.
