Today’s word is: greenproofing

    • the process of managing health and safety hazards  in living spaces and rendering them more eco-friendly: for example installing water filters on all kitchen, bathroom and shower taps;
    • the advocating of greener lifestyle solutions and product choices to limit exposure to toxins: for example, recommending the use of, and educating clients about, non-toxic cleaning products;
    • one of the prinary job functions of a green and/or eco consultant.

The term greenproofing is relatively new and few formal definitions currently exist. The term green-proofing is an amalgamation of the term baby-proofing (to render a space safe for a baby) and the verb ‘to green’ (here taken to mean to make more environmentally-friendly and less toxic). Certified greenproofers tend to be also be qualified baby planners. A greenproofer can also be synonymous with an eco or green consultant.
