4 Things You Never Thought Can Help the Environment 🌳
Here are 4 Things and Impactful Ways to Help in Your Zero Waste Journey:
A good way to start using sustainable items for your bedroom would be to go for reclaimed wooden furniture instead of new ones.
This makes sure that there is no expenditure of energy that would have otherwise been spent in the manufacturing process of a new one.
✅ Make sure that its production has minimal impact on the environment, and it does not employ harmful chemicals and retardants.
The retardants which are used for preventing a fire accident, are toxic enough to cause cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, among other health issues.
If you are currently using materials like polyester and nylon for bedding items, we recommend avoiding them! Not only do these fabrics trap a lot of heat but are also bad for your skin.
They are nonbiodegradable in nature and their manufacturing process consumes a great amount of water.
The best way to do this is to replace your old foam or innerspring mattress with organic materials.
Foam mattresses are notorious for releasing harmful gases and VOCs into the air long after their manufacturing. Instead of dumping your innerspring mattresses into the landfill every few years, go for mattresses made from 100% natural latex.
If you have ever been exposed to fumes emanating from paints that causes irritation in your eyes or nose, you probably are aware of their toxic nature!
The harmful pigments, solvents, and VOCs found in the paints are therefore not only bad for the environment but lethal for us humans too. You should therefore opt for non-toxic and VOC free paint before painting your bedroom.
✅ Before buying such paints, see to it that the production employs water conservation, low waste production, and reduced toxic emission.
