We’ve become an indoor species. So how do we create a nurturing new habitat? One designed for people and the planet. And what impacts will COVID have on our lives?
Even this far into the global pandemic, it’s still tough to predict what the new normal will be in the short-term and long-term. But our individual and shared experiences amid this crisis will inevitably shape how we work and live for the foreseeable future.
A number of questions are already arising about the spaces where we spend so much of our time: How do we reenvision our homes as full-time office, school, and living environments? How (or do) we return to in-office work environments? What’s the new expectation for cleanability? How do we balance a desire for intense disinfection with material health? How can we continue to ensure that ingredients have been evaluated for human health and environmental impacts to avoid unintended consequences? How can we each be thoughtful in our choices and make well-informed decisions that take into account potential human and environmental impacts?
