Did you know that people spend 90% of their time indoors? Do you know that sitting is the new smoking? Did you know that you are a product of your environment? You are what you eat, what you drink, the air you breath, and the quality and quantity of sleep and movement that you get. It's time that our environments enhance our health and wellbeing rather than harm it! The time has come to elevate human health and comfort to the forefront of building design, construction, operations and implement organizational practices policies. The time has come to innovatively reinvent the environments that we work, play and live in that are not only better for the planet—but also for people.
