Sustainability is no longer an option; it is the only way to be. And it needs to reflect in every action we take, and everything we do. Now, more than ever, after being relegated to our homes for two years by a raging global pandemic, it is important to make conscious decisions especially when it comes to our homes. Environmental pollution may be out of our control, but yes, we can ensure that we avoid any form of indoor pollution.
What is indoor pollution? What are the causes? What are the implications? Standing In today’s day and age, these questions have become even more pertinent. Paints, furnishings, electrical appliances are all known sources of toxic indoor pollutants. Surprisingly even furniture, especially those made of plywood is one of the biggest sources of indoor pollution. Furniture made from regular plywood emits toxic emissions leading to indoor air pollution. What’s alarming is the fact that exposure to such pollutants can cause allergies, skin irritation, and headache over a short period of time, whereas long term exposure can even lead to serious ailments like asthma, COPD, and lung cancer.
Given that we all started spending so much time Indoors, the need for opting health safe products at home was at an all-time high and this led to the innovation of zero emission plywood which emits negligible formaldehyde emission. Greenply offers durable and quality products that not only meets the design aesthetics but the global emission standards to ensure safe Indoor air quality. Needless to say, Greenply E-0 is becoming the preferred choice of architects, designers and end consumers alike.
“We all need to be well informed when it comes to making choices for our homes and families,” says actor, activist and new mom Dia Mirza. When Dia and her husband Vaibhav decided to refurbish their home, alongside aesthetic, sustainability too played a deciding role. “Everyone who knows me, knows how much I value sustainability. I’ve always been conscious about the choices I make. So after Avyaan’s birth, Vaibhav and I wanted to create a safe space for him to grow up in and wanted to ensure that the furniture that we were building for him was made with the best and the safest material.” For Dia who is also UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador & United Nations Secretary-General for Sustainable Development, it was important what she chooses ticks all the right boxes when it comes to sustainability. “Greenply has always been my go-to option for plywood and boards, not only because of Its strength and durability but also because it is the only Indian wood panel company with FSC® FM certification, for its sustainable business practices. And with its E-0 innovation, I am sure that my family will thrive indoors without the exposure to harmful emissions,” says Dia. “I’m happy that Greenply understood the need, and came up with a solution to ensure that now our indoors, oursuch as homes, and our families are safe!”
