Do your bit for the environment
23 June 2013 | Helpful tips and hints
As we become more aware of our modern way of living’s effects on the environment, it becomes increasingly important to choose sustainable products that help rather than hurt the environment.
Sustainable products unfortunately have a bit of a stigma attached to them, as they are often far less attractive than their non-eco friendly counterparts. We are pleased to say that this has changed quite dramatically recently. Here are a list of uber-stylish, eco-friendly products that will help you do your bit for the environment:
Fuez Kitchen Bench Tops
Made with recycled glass, fly ash, stone and shells, it’s more durable than marble. Made with 60% to 80% recycled materials, including beer bottles, and manufactured using 100% wind-generated electricity, this is a stylish alternative to quarried stone.
Bamboo flooring is a durable, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to timber flooring. It takes only a few years for a bamboo plant to grow to maturity, while it takes decades for hardwood trees. Further, when bamboo is harvested, the root continues to live and produces new stock. The best news… it’s not budget-friendly as well!
As mentioned above, bamboo is super sustainable! And just when you thought it couldn’t get better… it does! Bamboo linen is a long lasting quality material that you would think would be course but when compared to high thread count quality cotton – it is at least on par if not better. Unbelievably, bamboo towels and bedding tend to get softer with each wash and again – very budget friendly.
So here are just three simple ways you can do your bit to help the environment whilst not having to compromise on style.
