Jonti-Craft Products are GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certified!

 

What does this mean for Jonti-Craft Furniture?

Each and every one of Jonti-Craft products have obtained the certification and did so without having to make any adjustments to material supply or process.  This means when you buy Jonti-Craft branded products, you will always have been contributing to healthier indoor air quality.

 

The GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certification was designed to take into consideration the unique sensitivities of children.  This Certification meets some of the strictist maximum levels of VOC's (volatile organic compounds)

 

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is a third-party organization that certifies products for low chemical emissions. GREENGUARD standards are among the most stringent product emissions standards in the world. Many products that you use everyday can give off harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds.) These chemical emissions can negatively impact indoor air quality,   
   

Because people spend more than 90% of their time indoors, indoor air quality is a very important issue. The level of air pollutants indoors are typically 2 to 5 times higher than those found outside. The U.S. EPA and American Lung Association recognized poor indoor air quality as “one of the greatest modern risks to human health.” Also, according to The World Health Report 2002, air pollution is responsible for 2.7 percent of the global burden of disease.    

 

Indoor air pollution can lead to serious health consequences such as asthma, headaches and respiratory diseases. More serious effects of indoor air pollution are neurological disease, reproductive and developmental defects, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. Poor indoor air quality is especially important to children’s health. This is because children breathe in more air than adults relative to their body size. Also, children’s organs and important body systems are still developing and can be damaged by VOCs. Children have a higher heart rate which allows substances absorbed into the blood to permeate tissues faster. Because of these things, children are much more susceptible to negative health impacts. Currently, 73 million children under the age of 18 in the United States alone are at risk from indoor air pollution.    

 

Jonti-Craft’s achievement is very unique as more than 3,000 SKUs obtained GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification and did so without having to make adjustments to the material supply or processes. This is not an easy task, and GREENGUARD commends the company on their continued commitment to create healthier indoor environments where children learn and play.
