America is "going green," with daily news reports focusing on environmental issues. We're encouraged to recycle and reuse, bike and walk, and generally adopt other positive behaviors to help mend and sustain our planet.
The environment also exists at a more "micro" level that includes your workplace, school and home. The air you breathe, the water you drink, and even the noise levels in these more "personal" spaces all impact your health in an immediate way.
While it is difficult to see results from the actions you take to improve the larger environment, you can experience more direct benefits when you take action to improve your personal environmental health, and create a "cleaner, greener" home for you and your family. No major remodeling is required to do this; all you need is the information and motivation to get started.
