We often think that our homes are safe spaces and the air we breathe is healthy and pure. But it's time to rethink. Recent studies have shown that indoor air pollution is a serious issue that plagues the safety of our interiors. This is because the air we intake contains highly dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) like Formaldehyde. What’s even more revealing about these studies is that furniture contributes to these formaldehyde emissions indoors as every other item that contributes to indoor air pollution. This is why there is a strong need for zero-emission plywood.
