Greening In-Home Health with Green Nest’s Ron and Lisa Beres

July 30, 2010

In recent years, we have seen an increased awareness of how buildings affect your health, and “Green is Good” welcomes Green Nest’s Lisa and Ron Beres to explain this relatively new phenomenon. Soon after moving to a new home, Lisa’s health spiraled downward, and for the longest time the couple couldn’t figure out why. After more than a dozen doctor visits, they were shocked to find their home was actually degrading Lisa’s well-being. Upon making some specific changes to their home, Lisa’s health is now better than ever before. The couple started GreenNest.com as a resource for healthy remedies for in-home health hazards. They also recently wrote a book, Just Green It!, to help others green their in-home health. “The first thing [people] should do is increase the air quality of their home,” says Ron. “Indoor air quality is two to five times worse than outdoor air quality.”
