AURORA, Colo., July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bona® US, the world leader in hardwood floor care and maintenance since 1919, and Healthy Child Healthy World, a national, nonprofit organization that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals, today celebrated five years of partnering to help families create healthy homes.

For the past five years Bona and Healthy Child Healthy World have formed a trusted partnership to educate families about the importance of bringing safe products into the home. From new moms to Hollywood celebrities, both organizations encourage parents to choose only third-party certified products for their children and homes.

"Bona has been a staple in our home for years. We have been using it to clean our floors and would not use anything else," said Tiffani Thiessen, actress. "I love that it does the job as well as gives me comfort knowing it's not harmful."

Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner is safe enough to use every day to quickly clean, shine and protect hardwood floors. Bona is the first in its industry to carry a full system of hardwood floor finishing and floor care products certified for indoor air quality. With almost a century of expertise in creating durable and beautiful hardwood floors, Bona's hardwood floor care products and systems are safe for floors, families and the environment. Bona contributes to a healthy home by eliminating dust during the sanding process, offering low-VOC hardwood floor finishes and in creating non-toxic, pH-neutral floor care products. Bona's floor care products are GREENGUARD GOLD certified for indoor air quality. Bona hardwood floor care products can be found nationwide.

"Partners like Healthy Child Healthy World help us tell the story that homes can be beautiful, clean and safe," said Cate Vanegas, Director of Marketing, Bona US. "It's wonderful to celebrate five years of honoring our collective mission for families and homes."

Healthy Child Healthy World (HCHW) merged with Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit research and advocacy organization in October 2014, bringing together HCHW's powerful educational resources for parents with EWG's groundbreaking research in environmental health. As a program of EWG, Healthy Child Healthy World creates targeted educational resources so parents and caregivers can make informed decisions to protect the health and development of children.

About Healthy Child Healthy World
Healthy Child Healthy World is a national, nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals. The organization exists because more than 125 million Americans, predominantly children, now face a historically unprecedented rise in chronic diseases and illnesses such as cancer, autism, asthma, allergies, birth defects, ADHD, obesity, diabetes, and learning and developmental disabilities. Credible scientific evidence increasingly points to environmental hazards and household chemicals as causing and contributing to many of these diseases. Healthy Child Healthy World aims to educate parents, support protective policies and engage communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.
