Healthy Home 2018 Tour Features Practical Sustainable Solutions




Dior Builders has partnered with the American Lung Association for Healthy Home 2018 tour, from January 26 through February 4, which redefines how healthy a home can be. A kickoff gala on January 24 will feature an appearance by actor, author and activist Mariel Hemingway.

       Highlights include American Rockwool insulation, a hardwired smart system designed to avoid electromagnetic radiation, an energy-efficient HVAC system equipped with IQAir Perfect 16 Whole House HEPA filtration, Gaggenau appliances, TOTO WaterSense toilets, lead-free plumbing, Greenguard gold-certified drywall, cabinets and countertops, mostly hard flooring throughout, natural and organic bedding and non-toxic furniture. Healthy Home 2018 will illustrate what’s possible for anyone when building with both aesthetics and health in mind.

       Victoria Di Iorio, founder of the Healthy Home Initiative, notes, “We are going beyond the notion of what is sustainable and perceived to be healthy and creating a real-life model of what a truly healthy home should be, from foundation to food.”

Cost: $20. Location: 1055 Glencrest Dr., Inverness. For more information and tickets, visit HealthyHome2018.com.
