A home is more than just a place to sleep.
It’s a way of life. A mindset.
That’s why Healthier Homes is changing the way homes are built and furnished. From construction, to designing spaces, to materials and décor.
Our philosophy is simple. Less is more when it comes to livable beautiful spaces. Join us on the journey to better living through a healthier home.
What is Healthier Homes?
Healthier Homes has a straightforward mission: to provide a new, better way of living a non toxic lifestyle, along with a new, better way to shop for sustainable home products -- that empower you to craft your very own healthier home.
Healthier Home Products
Research suggests that the average person spends 90 percent of their time indoors—why don’t we put more time, attention, and thought into the items we bring inside these spaces?
From curtains to furniture, from dishware to paint, every product we purchase that goes into our homes, schools and workplaces can affect our quality of life. These items sometimes contain dangerous substances like formaldehyde, petro solvents, heavy metals, and more.
Worse, it’s often difficult to determine what precisely was used to make the items you’re buying, as some manufacturers don’t want you to know that flame retardance and glues used to speed up manufacturing processes come with a hefty price tag for your health.
You shouldn’t have to guess at what’s a healthier home product. We’re looking to change all that!
Healthier Homes, the book
There are many key factors that contribute to your ability to stay healthy at home.
To address this challenge, we launched a healthy living shop so you can peruse and purchase quality home products with confidence, while getting the latest information about how to keep your healthy house as nontoxic as possible.
But it doesn’t stop there. Our founders are the innovators and healthy home builders that started JS2 Partners—pioneers in changing the way homes are designed, built and lived in. Jen & Rusty’s book, Healthier Homes, can serve as your basis for understanding how to build, decorate and live in your wellness-inspired healthier home.
...The Benefits of a Healthy Home...
Nontoxic and Natural.
At Healthier Homes, our primary focus is on the health and well-being of the occupants inside of a home, and that health-conscious approach comes with a variety of benefits for living healthy. First and foremost is improved air quality.
Having less dust, pollen, and other particles in your air can improve respiratory health, reduce allergies, and result in fewer illnesses. But it also means reduced exposure to airborne toxins.
Many synthetic product materials used in homes contain toxic chemicals, such as formaldehyde and phthalates, which can cause health issues over time. But having a natural healthy home environment means improved health overall—both on a physical -- and mental level. Yep, studies have shown that people who live in homes with fewer toxins are less likely to develop depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues.
But the most important part is that a nontoxic home can lead to improvements in your general well-being. Living in a healthier home environment can reduce stress, increase physical activity, and even improve relationships. That’s why we’re passionate about what we do! Welcome to the Healthier Homes family.
Sustainable & Eco Friendly.
Whether you’re looking for chic organic style or eco friendly home products, we have something for everyone and every style. Although we recognize the difference between nontoxic and sustainable—one is good for you, your friends, your family members, and your pets, while the other is good for the natural world as a whole—we also know that both is better, so we try to ensure that all our line up of growing healthy home products are as natural and organic as they are sustainable.
Buying and using healthier home products can increase comfort and safety while reducing our collective carbon footprint. In fact, each purchase decision is important when it comes to living healthy – and it’s important to consider how each item was made.
Take looking for wallpaper that’s manufactured using 100% natural plant-based fibers. We choose to partner with manufacturers that apply water-based inks via a smoke free system, which dramatically reduces air and water pollution at the factory level and also reduces indoor air pollution for the healthier home family that ends up enjoying the wallcoverings in their home.
In short, healthy home products create a more sustainable home while also promoting a non toxic lifestyle. Choosing sustainable materials that are manufactured using energy-efficient practices, and taking other steps to reduce your carbon footprint can all help to create a healthier home living environment.
Meaning of Organic Home.
The definition for ‘organic’ in the dictionary is: relating to or derived from living organisms; simple, healthful, close to nature; relating to or affecting the body… Many of us are familiar with organic food or organic cotton clothing, but the lesser-known ideal of an’ organic home’ is something that deserves our attention.
We spend 90% of our time working, living, relaxing and regenerating in our indoor living environments—which is why it’s so important to surround ourselves in homes crafted from organic materials.
The team at Healthier Homes is passionate about organic lifestyle! You can always count on us for doing our due diligence when it comes to sourcing the highest quality, stylish essentials for a healthy home.
