yellowblue Replies to Reuters Energy Efficient Green Buildings Research

Press Release updated: Oct 23, 2017 14:08 EDT

​​​​​yellowblue™ Eco Tech has a pretty profound response to a recent report by Reuters Health.

In a Sept. 19 article entitled “Energy-efficient green buildings may emit hazardous chemicals,” Reuters reports the same newly renovated low-income homes in Boston that earned awards for being green failed indoor air quality tests.

“Researchers found potentially carcinogenic levels of toxic chemicals in the remodeled homes before and after residents moved in,” the article reports. “All of the 30 eco-friendly homes in the study had risky indoor air concentrations for at least one chemical.”

It would be crazy to try and tell people to simply stop making green building upgrades. That’s why we continue to work toward blending our line of energy saving products with healthy indoor air quality solutions.

Craig Schwienebart, President, Yellowblue Eco Tech

In some homes, as many as 100 chemicals with known or suspected health concerns were present, the article reports.

The brutally honest and simultaneously sincere response from yellowblue™ on the matter? We told you so.

That’s why the manufacturer and wholesaler with a network of independent authorized dealers, who sell energy saving and healthy home products directly to consumers, partnered with Better Air more than a year ago.

Announced in August of 2016, the partnership made yellowblue™ the exclusive residential distributor of BetterAir’s BA-1000 Automatic Air Duct Purifier, the world’s first probiotic air and surface purification system.

“After careful evaluation of the air purification market, we at yellowblue™ felt that expanding into environmental probiotics was the perfect next move for our company,” said Craig Schwienebart, President of yellowblue™ Eco Tech. “A year later, we couldn’t be happier with our decision.”

The BA-1000 integrates with yellowblue’s™ existing line of solutions, seeking to positively impact all areas of the home. It’s efficient, easy to install, and addresses so many issues some people don’t even know they have with indoor air quality.

”As far as we see it, BetterAir is a fantastic solution regardless of the situation,” Schwienebart continued. “From low-income housing to high-end properties and commercial facilities, we feel everyone should have access to better, cleaner, healthier air.”

The BA-1000 puts science to work, intermittently releasing environmental probiotics into enclosed living and work spaces to consume organic irritants like pollen, dust mite waste and pet dander.

“At Yellowblue, we know the importance of protecting the benefits of energy efficient upgrades along with indoor air quality improvements to provide a whole healthy home solution,” Schweinbart said.

“It would be crazy to try and tell people to simply stop making green building upgrades. That’s why we continue to work toward blending our line of energy saving products with healthy indoor air quality solutions.”

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
