Redefine What Sustainability Means to You
The way you spend your money can have a ripple effect on your surroundings. It’s not about buying a product from a perceived premium brand. It’s about being conscious and conscientious about what you buy. All it takes is to pause and ask a simple question: is this product aligned to sustainability? Am I aiding sustainable values or am I abetting them?
Having an eco-friendly home décor doesn’t always mean starting over. It’s a matter of making small yet simple decisions about your home to protect the environment. Use brands that are driven by ethical labour standards and fair trade practices.
Use Materials that are Non-toxic
Your paint matters. The next time you decide to paint your walls or your furniture, ensure you choose a paint that is free of VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds. VOCs are not only harmful to the environment but are also harmful to you and your family’s health.
Plants bring about a renewed life into any space. A few plants such as ferns and palms can not only add to the décor but also increase oxygen levels in a room. You won’t lose any sleep over potted plants during your vacations either. In-house plants are low maintenance and can live up to 3 weeks without water.
