Gerard Windstein is the President and Founder of Organic Living,
The Home of EcoClean.
The idea of providing access to products designed to create a safe haven to those who suffer from chemical sensitivities grew out of his own experience. Mr. Windstein started a carpet cleaning company in 1982 but quickly became severely sensitive to the chemicals commonly used in the industry.
As a health necessity, Gerard began to search for an organic-based cleaner that could not only provide relief for himself but for his chemical-sensitive customers as well.
Mr. Windstein also discovered many factors which contribute to poor indoor air quality: toxic VOC’s, new carpet, air fresheners, bacteria and smoke are just a few on the list of contributors poisoning our indoor environments.
Years ago, homes use to leak all the air in the home at least twice daily, which allowed for toxins to be constantly diffused indoors. In contrast, modern homes are energy-efficient and designed not to leak. In turn, our homes have become giant “Ziploc bags” and everything we bring in will eventually become a part of our dust and air quality, being ingested though our lungs and skin.
Guided by his personal experience and the knowledge he had acquired, EcoClean and the “Healthy Home Concept” was established.
Due to customer response and demand for additional safe home products, Mr. Windstein opened a retail store which currently operates in North Central Phoenix.
Creating a healthy home by reducing toxins, allergens and improving indoor air quality can have a direct effect on how we feel or whether our children develop asthma and a variety of other diseases. In families already affected by these conditions, the choice made by purchasing an organic mattress or air purification can be as important as medicine preventing attacks.
Organic Living- The Home of EcoClean is a family owned business for over 30 years now as Gerard works closely with his daughter, Nathalie Windstein. The pair take great pride in helping the chemically sensitive and health oriented population in navigating truly safe and healthy home products. Organic Living recognizes that your entire family’s health is the number one priority.
