So why should we start to look to more sustainable products?
Apart from the obvious crisis we have regarding the state of our planet! Our money talks.
We can really make a difference by supporting businesses that use eco-friendly, recyclable and reused materials. Many of these are small-scale local setups. These organisations reduce their environmental footprint by recycling and refurbishing old furniture and reducing deforestation.
These producers also use dyes that are not harmful and reduce water wastage, etc. during production.
Sustainable Products also need to be Ethical
Another component of sustainable products is that they follow labor laws stringently and also take into account environmental laws like avoiding landfills, not dumping their waste into the ocean, setting up green productions factories, and so on.
So you really are helping the larger picture when you purchase eco friendly decorating products. The products are out there you just might have to do a little more digging. Or get a professional to do it for you 🙂
