"Green” interiors are not a new style, a preferred color choice or even a new trend. “Green” interiors means using energy-efficient, non- or low-polluting products, built with sustainable resources and can be maintained without the use of toxic cleaning products, to create interiors that are both for people and good for the environment.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes. Most cases of chronic sinusitis are not caused by infection but are actually an immune disorder caused by fungus.
