Your home environment has the most immediate impact on your health. And the good news is that you have some control here!
In your home, the important environmental factors include:
A healthy home environment also contributes to, rather than detracts from, its immediate vicinity. It does not negatively impact the plants, animals, or people "living downstream" from it by emitting toxins, such as cleaning or gardening byproducts, into its surroundings. A healthy home also contributes to sustainability, minimizing waste and utilizing and refreshing local resources.
You face many of the same health challenges on the job as you do at home. For example, in an older building, there could be lead in the drinking water. Or if your workplace is unavoidably noisy, such as a construction site, your sound pollution risk is increased.
However, the most common workplace environmental concern is air quality. This is particularly true in manufacturing, farming, mining, cleaning/maintenance, and other professions that rely heavily on chemical use.
