The use of biobased products can reduce indoor air pollutants harmful to lung health. Biobased Products are often considered by the EPA as Environmentally Preferable, which means that the products will have fewer or no negative effects on human health or the environment when compared to conventional products used for the same purpose.
Although there may be differences from product to product, most biobased products follow general health standards. For details, visit the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest’s Health House webpage on biobased products.
