Creating a Healthy Home

Creating a healthy home can help you and your family breathe cleaner, fresher air and hopefully reduce allergic reactions or allergy-related asthma episodes.

First off, you need to know which allergic triggers affect your asthma, such as dust mites, pets, pollen and moulds.. For help on how to identify triggers, see our page - Know your triggers.

And then you can take steps to avoid or reduce the impact of those triggers, if possible.

Visit our Sensitive Choice website for more tips and advice, including our interactive home where you can click on a room to discover what you can do in that space to Create your Healthy Home.

Asthma and allergy aware products

Our Sensitive Choice® program aims to help Australians with asthma and allergies make better lifestyle choices.

We developed the Sensitive Choice program as a way of identifying products that may help people with asthma and allergies breathe a little easier and reduce allergic reactions.

The program is of particular value to the millions of Australians and New Zealanders with asthma and the one in three of us who have allergies.

To help you identify these asthma and allergy-aware products, community-conscious companies use the Sensitive Choice symbol on their packaging. You’ll find that reassuring blue butterfly on hundreds of products – from bedding to building materials, from cleaning agents to carpets, from air purifiers and vacuum cleaners to the very paint you put on your walls.

For more information about the Sensitive Choice program, partners and products visit our Sensitive Choice website.
