It does not take a rocket scientist to understand that using green certified materials in housing can benefit your health. Many people do not understand what health benefits they are getting from buying a house made from green materials.
Green housing has better airflow than traditional housing does. Research has shown that around thirty percent of the buildings in the USA have poor airflow and this is of particular concern in this nation where the majority of people spend about 90% of their lives in enclosed environments.
Lower operating costs due to reduced utility payments means less air pollution in your air. Cleaner air could result in you needing to visit your doctor less for environmental irritations to your health.
There is a general understanding in our culture today that nothing lasts forever and that includes our planet and its ability to support our lifestyle. Green housing is one way you can take some stress off the planet earth and feel positive about living and enjoying the fruits of bounty it provides. Living a positive lifestyle and generally being in a positive environment has been shown to have enormous benefits in regards to health and wellbeing.
Buying a green home not only benefits your health, it does your families, neighbors, and to a lesser extent the entire populations of the planet. Every little thing we can do as an individual to lessen the negative impact our lives have on the environment has a large impact in the overall wellbeing of the environment.
