3 minutes read
We consume more than we can keep up with, and most times end up unnecessarily harming the environment in the process. Creating an eco-friendly home may not usually be our most important priority, but we most definitely should begin doing our part to save the Earth in little ways.
1. Recycled Furniture
There are tons of organic and natural materials used for furniture, some which may just be suitable for your home. Try your best to avoid materials like plastic or chromed metal, instead focusing more on options like recycled wood.
Or, if you're not really particular, purchasing secondhand furniture is an eco-friendly option too. Buying gorgeous preloved furniture not only helps save the environment, it also gives your home a little more depth and character.
2. Smart Lighting Choices
Make use of natural sunlight, and let as much of it in as you can! Install large window fixtures to help brighten up your home, and leave the curtains opened as long as you can during the day.
Besides doing your part to save the Earth, this can also cut down your electricity bill. When you do have to turn on the lights at night, remember to use energy-efficient bulbs, which saves both energy and electrical power.
3. Wall Coverings
Paint can sometimes emit certain harmful substances, which may inevitably harm the environment. Get creative and opt for other unique options instead, those of which are healthier choices.
Wallpapering your interior is one of the more plausible methods, while other suggestions like wood panels, cork and ceramic add a pretty interesting touch as well. Besides creating a more unique vibe, they also help your walls become a beautiful focal point.
Probably the most effective solution, plants are one of the best options if you want to create an eco-friendly environment. Their most obvious benefit is purifying the air, getting rid of harmful chemicals within the house.
Besides the health benefits, placing plants in your home can also create a fresher and more uplifting ambience. Bamboo Palm or Gerbera Daisies might work the best, especially if you're keen on having them purify the insides of your home.
