In today’s day and age, we’re all taking steps to be more eco-friendly. Whether it’s switching to reusable drinking straws and shopping bags, eating less meat or reducing waste, we’re all doing our best to create a more sustainable planet. There are a number of methods of incorporating this sustainability into your own home.

Earth-friendly furniture: Next time you’re thinking about buying a new bookcase or coffee table, consider buying items made from recycled wood. Not only are they eco-friendly, but they are cost-effective, easy to clean and look great too.

Peaceful plants: Indoor plants absorb carbon dioxide and keep the oxygen flowing, acting as an all-natural air freshener. They purify the air by removing toxins and other nasty things emitted by household appliances, furniture, flooring, and things you may not even consider such as hair products or nail polish.

Window glazing: Is the house too cold in the winter, yet too hot in the summer? Window glazing may be just the solution for you. It adds a layer of insulation, helping to keep the air conditioned air inside in the summer and the warmth in the winter.
