Health E Habitats
Builder Associate Spotlight S1:E15 "Health E Habitats" Interview with Michael and Marie Spinelle Environmental Wellness - it's a pretty big deal, and if you are a contractor on Long Island who needs a work location (new or reno) cleaned & detailed post-construction, you should contact Michael and Marie. They are a lot more than "just a cleaning company". FROM THEIR www.healthehabitats.com WEBSITE: "Living a healthy lifestyle is a mindset, first and foremost. It’s the dedication to living your life in a way that respects your body, your health, and your happiness. Indoor Wellness Environment™ is part of that commitment. We spend 90% of our lives indoors, which is a staggering amount of time! Our families get exposed to all kinds of human-made and natural materials and their byproducts inside the home. People want assurances that the conditions inside their homes are not adversely affecting the health and wellbeing of their families, yet they lack a single comprehensive resource that can assess conditions, identify the sources of problems, implement corrective measures and then provide on-going quality improvements. These factors hold true for generally healthy people who are seeking improvements to their indoor environment, as well as for people dealing with health issues like immune deficiencies, respiratory ailments, and allergies. Indoor environmental conditions are also a concern to people who may be undergoing lifestyle changes such as mothers to be and households with newborn additions. healthEhabitats™ has the IQ, resources, programs, and certified and trained personnel to assist you in this pursuit. There’s no grade, metric, rating system, or app that can give an Indoor Environmental Wellness™ score; it’s a lifestyle, much like any pursuit of healthy living."

Canstruction Long Island is determined to end this suffering. At our event, teams are given 12 hours to defy expectations, logic and gravity as they build fantastic sculptures from thousands of cans of food. Driven by the knowledge that their structures will change lives by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by filling the shelves of local food banks dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to bring their creations to life. The following day, the super-sized masterpieces are judged in a variety of categories as these unconventional art exhibits are opened to the public. The cost of admission: just one can of food. At the end of the exhibition, all cans are donated to help feed the hungry on Long Island. Canstruction is using ‘one can’ as a catalyst for change, ‘one can’ to represent the building blocks of these massive sculptures, ‘one can’ to prove that every act of kindness makes a difference. Through the generosity of volunteers, celebrity judges, and members of the community, Canstruction has contributed millions of pounds of food to community food banks demonstrating that we can win the fight against hunger. Since 2007, the participants of Canstruction Long Island have donated over 480,000 cans, yielding approximately 320,000 meals, along with approximately $40,000 to help fight hunger on Long Island." -------------------- Builder Associate Spotlight Podcast I'm Steve Barker, I do commercial insurance during the day and podcast editing at night!
