Tips For A Toxin Free Home

Cost, performance and aesthetics are important in home design.  Most people don’t consider that their spaces can become toxic from the materials used, from construction glues to carpeting, and these toxins or VOCs (volatile organic compounds) may can cause respiratory issues, cancer and other illnesses.

It all started with an invited tour from the Cosentino Group (the Silestone company) to visit their factories in Ameria (Spain) along with tourista adventures in Barcelona and Granada.
