My house has always had a green aesthetic, with lots of plants and flowers. But I just saw this post along with the original TED video and am really excited at the idea of turning my house completely green and improving the indoor air quality. I’m asthmatic and Toronto’s infamously smoggy summers don’t help, the last couple of summers have been especially hellish. I often find myself waking up having problems breathing nightly and having several minor asthma attacks daily. I’m going to make this a personal pet project at my families home. Here and here there’s more information on engineering your house with green cleaner air quality.
The TED lecture series are amazing and shouldn’t be missed.
