Plants, to refresh your house
Selecting the best materials
It goes without saying that a green decor is made of eco-friendly materials. Opt for natural resources or firms that focus on green products such as stone or wood. When it comes to your furniture, it is important to use wood which is certified FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes), which ensures that the forests it comes from are managed in a responsible and sustainable way.
Minimise your ecological footprint by using eco-friendly fabrics, made from natural materials. (Linen and hemp are excellent alternatives). Make sure that the manufacturing process is green. Cotton, for example, can require several thousand litres of water during the manufacturing process… which is not very ecological!
Recycling and upcycling are two recurring concepts in the environmentally-friendly world. Restore some of your items to make them last longer! These decorative pieces will not only mirror your personality, but will also add a unique and creative touch to your interior.
