What is GREENGUARD GOLD?
At Ubabub focus on designing nursery furniture that is distinctly modern, eco-conscious, and most importantly safe.
The GREENGUARD Gold seal certifies that our furniture has been independently tested and verified to meet rigorous standards for chemical emissions and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde or phthalates.
GREENGUARD Gold offers some of the world's most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of VOCs into indoor air which can be a major source of indoor air pollution and may contribute to health problems in children such as asthma and allergies. Products carrying the seal have been tested for over 10,000 chemicals and more than 360 VOCs and certified as low-emitting by this independent, trusted 3rd party.
why is indoor air quality important?
Air pollution levels are 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors
Indoor spaces are often filled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemicals that are released into the air from everyday products such as furniture.
People spend 90% of their time indoors
Once airborne, VOCs are inhaled by occupants. As a result, people receive over 70% of their environmental exposure to chemicals indoors.
