Sustainable Décor

July 3rd, 2010

In the wake of environmental disasters, namely, the BP Oil Spill and the growing garbage patches in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, sustainability and making smart, eco-friendly choices is becoming even more important. With that in mind, Sustainable Living Group strives to inform the population on different ways to be green in every aspect of their lives.

One of the many ways that people can make environmentally conscious decisions is in their own home through sustainable décor! Sustainable décor focuses on the integrity of the workmanship and the materials used in order to create stylish, yet eco-friendly products that can cater to many design tastes.

Mark Macek crafts beautiful sideboards, cabinets, shelves, desks, tables and storage systems from sustainably forested maple and hardwood veneers, bamboo plywood, and composite board made from scraps of waste pine.

Worried about the chemicals you may be inhaling and ultimately disposing when you paint your living room? Anna Sova has created a line of milk-based paint with 94% food-grade ingredients, eliminating the toxic chemicals contained in most paint.

Reclaimed and sustainable wood flooring from ecofriendlyflooring.com gives you gorgeous floors with the peace of mind that you have not contributed to the millions of trees cut down every year. Eco Friendly Flooring gets their timber from demolition companies and farmers in Wisconsin taking down their old barns.

So next time you think about doing some decorating or renovating in your home, take time to think about where your materials are coming from and how they will affect the bigger picture in our environment.
