When we buy household appliances we look at the Energy Star label, we get the funny spiral energy-efficient light bulbs and we separate the waste to recycle it. Home eco-decor is a relatively new concept that has also gained popularity. Here are a few ideas that will help you introduce eco-decor to your home.
When you start remodeling your home, or you are moving into a new one, you could easily upgrade it and use environmentally-friendly materials at the same time. The pure elegance of the organic cotton, the sheer functionality, and simplicity of the bamboo, as well as the creativity, put in the recycled items, will complement your interior design and reflect your desire to live green.
According to painters & decorators, organic cotton costs twice as more as the conventional cotton, yet it’s price is well deserved, since it has been grown without the use of pesticides and other non-natural means. There is a huge variety of items manufactured from organic cotton: towels, sheets, tablecloths, crib linens, bath mats and etc. While pure organic cotton products are available, you can also eco-friendly goods of blended origins like mixtures from organic cotton and linen or hemp.
