Choosing Green Furniture
If you are new to eco friendly living, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of shopping for green furniture. After all, shopping for traditional furniture is bad enough! How are you ever going to be able to decide if it has to be ‘green’ on top of everything else? Here are a couple of simple guidelines to follow as you go in search of green furniture:
- Look for furniture pieces made with renewable resources. Bamboo chairs with cushions covered in organic cotton are very likely to be green.
- Take a look at recycled furniture—thrift stores and antique shops are filled with lovely furniture. These pieces are green simply because we don’t use any resources to make something that already exists.
