Review for Institute For Baubiologie & Ecology, Clearwater, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This Institute (IBE) has an extraordinarily important role to play in educating the public about the critical role that buildings have in human health. IBE is the only place I know of where all the information concerning creating health supporting buildings is collected for the public. I became concerned about the indoor environment in 1987 when both wife and I were made environmentally ill by our home and work environments. I found out about IBE in 1988 through a magazine ad. IBE was the answer to my prayers. The Institute provided the information I need to realize that our home was poisoning us with electromagnetic radiation and with chemicals from defective building materials. And it provided the information needed to correct the problems. My life would not be the same without IBE.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

IBE give everyone involve the chance to change the world one building at a time

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

highly motivated people concerned about others and the planet and willing to do the work required to increase recognition of the Institute's role in educating the public.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Deeply affect the way buildings are constructed so that they are more health- supporting. Significantly affect the way products are built so the the materials used and the effects produced are biologically compatible with people.

Ways to make it better...

Ther could be no better experience

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Acquiring funding to increase outreach to the public and to increase involvement with standard setting bodies that can affect the way we construct our buildings
