There are a few ways you can take steps to creating a more sustainable home for your family, your home, and planet Earth.
Sustainability. Such a trendy word right now, isn’t it? And that’s not without good reason. Although many of us are interested in the topic and want to do our part for this beautiful Earth, most of us can agree that implementing that concept into our own lives can be a little…intimidating and overwhelming. Where do we start?
Here’s the thing: we’re never going to be able to go completely Earth-friendly overnight. The key is to take it one step at a time. When it’s time for a new bottle of shampoo, swap it for a brand with natural ingredients. When it’s time for a new all-purpose cleaner, opt for the eco-friendly option. The same goes for the pieces of furniture that make your home, your home. When it’s time for a new dining table, opt for one that is beautifully solid wood. When it’s time to upgrade to a new sectional to fit your growing family, look into the sustainable efforts different furniture brands take to make their products.
Here are a few ways you can take steps to creating a more sustainable home for your family, your home, and planet Earth.
- Do your research. Consider what materials that piece you’re eyeing is made with. Look into brands that pride themselves on sustainable efforts and shop from there.
- If it’s your style, go with raw materials like solid wood over common fabrics, or look for fabrics that are sourced in an eco-friendly way.
- Remember that the idea of sustainability is a relatively new interest of ours, and usually a more expensive one at that. Small changes over time will help you get to where you want to be.
There’s something about bringing the “outdoors” into your home. With the right curation, it can give off a fresh, clean feel and an aesthetically pleasing vibe. Earth will thank you! And chances are, you’ll be thanking yourself.
