The era of over-consuming on everything is running out of steam and more and more households, with their small but daily gestures, are turning to more ecological ways of doing things. We often talk about organic food products, cosmetics or even organic cleaning products, but what about organic fittings and fixtures? Here's some advice for consuming less and living better in your household!
FurnitureYou can also step up a gear with an eco-friendly interior by using furniture that respects the environment. Some wooden furniture comes from forests that are deemed "sustainable". The furniture makers reduce the transport of raw materials, use manufacturing procedures that are more eco-friendly, limits the use of solvents, reduces packaging and guarantees the possibility to recycle the piece of furniture at the end of its life.
Paints and cleaning productsBefore covering your walls and floors with products stuffed full of chemicals, take a moment to think about the effects on you and your family. Organic cleaning products can found in the majority of shops these days, but you can also make them yourself. Did you know that the air inside the house is 5 to 10 times more polluted than the air outside? This is largely due to: various "waves" (mobile phones, computers, micro-waves,...), as well as detergents, furniture, paints, plastics, cigarettes and so on. Three green plants would be enough to detox an area of 30m2... so, now you know what to do: time to get in the green! Emilie De Decker
