You can’t go anywhere or read any newspaper, magazine, billboard or internet material without the term “Green” being used. And we are not talking about the mixing of blue and yellow to get the color green….we are talking about the save the planet, save the environment, save you life (through healthy practices) green.

Whether you agree or not, green is in……WAY in. The concept of using green as a way to sell products is now being used by almost every product manufacturer in the US and overseas. There is no doubt that the use of non bio-degradable chemicals and materials has become a very large problem. Companies that produce household cleaning products, for instance, have changed the formulas to ensure that all the chemicals used in the product are non-toxic, safe and biodegradable. Even the containers have been changed to be ‘landfill safe.”

For those individuals who suffer from various allergies, asthma, chemical sensitivities and respiratory dysfunctions, going green can significantly improve your indoor air quality.

For those individuals who have certain chemical sensitivities there are products for washing floors, clothes, counter tops, bathrooms and yourself that no longer have any chemical smell and are not artificially scented. Cooking utensils, small appliances, chairs, tables, etc,  are now made of materials that don’t use petroleum as a base chemical. Bedding, pillows, curtains, covered furniture, carpeting and clothing is now made with natural fibers and are  hypo-allergetic.

For those individuals who like plants in the house but also suffer from allergies due to pollen, ragweed and certain mold spores, there are new artificial plants ( greenery) that look real, feel real and are attractive. Real plants need to be potted in dirt or special soils and require plant food. Also, they require water. While it may not seem to be a problem, there are numerous natural mold spores that live and thrive in the soil and can be an issue with certain allergy sufferers.

There are also new ways to heat, cool and reduce humidity in your home while saving energy and providing for a more comfortable, healthy environment. There are now “smart” heating/cooling systems that can more accurately and more efficiently heat and cool your home and maintain a more comfortable moisture level no matter where you live.

Some of the newer light bulbs and lighting systems are designed to provide for a softer, more indirect form of lighting to minimize the glare, eye strain and headaches caused by too much of the wrong type of light. These light bulbs and systems use up to 50% less energy than the standard lights and are fast becoming standards in many countries around the world.

Going green has been the basic mantra for Pure Air Systems since its inception in 1985. Pure Air Systems was green when green was only a color. PAS manufacturers a line of HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems that use all metal housings, commercial grade metal framed HEPA filters, non-toxic carbon media and the ECM motors that use magnets rather than windings to both use less electricity and produce less ozone.
