Want to be creeped out just in time for Halloween? How’s this: Turns out that buildings - and specifically our homes - are the most toxic places we spend time in. Yikes.
As part of RNL’s Design2Thrive series this fall, we brought in leading expert in healthy materials Annette Stelmack for an in-depth and, frankly, terrifying account of the dangers of many commonly used building products.
The building industry has a long way to go in terms of addressing not just yet-to-be-proven threats, but even known carcinogens in the products, finishes and furnishings we specify on a daily basis.
RNL is committed to becoming better informed in the realm of healthy materials so that we can incite change where it is needed, and this presentation was a fundamental part of that education process.
