Synopsis

Without knowing it, we use every day products that pollute our home.

When we buy a liquid of maintenance for floors, we have in our hands a cocktail of VOC (volatile organic compound). When we acquire a piece of furniture, it is often made of agglomerated wood and releases formaldehyde in the air. When we offer a doll to one of our children, he also gets a load of phthalate.

Our interiors are supposed to be protective cocoons yet we are surrounded by objects that intoxicate us. Contrary to popular belief, the air inside our homes is 5 to 10 times more polluted than outside. The chemicals in our furniture, cleaning products and building materials are particularly at fault.
