Are you looking to make your Surrey home more eco-friendly?

As we are becoming increasingly aware of our carbon footprint, many of us are looking for ways to make our homes more eco-friendly. Here are some environmentally friendly ideas for your home that will still keep it looking fabulous and comfortable.

  1. When choosing new products for your home (rugs, curtains, pillows and linens), look for organic fibers and recycled materials like hemp, bamboo, wool, organic cotton and tencel. These materials are environmentally friendly and hold up well to regular use.

  2. When choosing new hardwood flooring, consider sustainably harvested bamboo.

  3. Look for low VOC in paints, finishes and carpets to limit chemicals that are released into the environment when doing home improvement projects.

  4. Indoor house plants will help keep the air inside your home clean.

  5. Make sure that your home is well insulated and choose energy efficient light bulbs (LED).

Making a few small changes around our homes will not only help us cut costs, but also ensure that we are kind to the environment.
