In today's day and age, we have to be more careful about the products we choose and why. Buying new furniture is becoming less than just a question about price, but sustainability; how do you integrate style with saving the Planet? Here are just a few simple changes you can make to lower your carbon footprint without compromising on looks.
Adding drapery to your room will add some colour, as well as help bring the eye around your space. Choosing a thicker fabric will help block out heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter. Match the colour to a throw blanket on your furniture, and it will tie everything together while allowing you to turn down the thermostat and keep the gas bill down.
Finding low maintenance - indoor plants, like succulents or cacti are a wonderful way to add colour while making your home a healthier environment overall. Plants will take out the CO2 from your environment and replace it with oxygen. Additions like an herb garden will act as an air-filter as well as give you access to fresh herbs all year long.
Living a sustainable lifestyle starts with the small choices that lead to a big impact. At La-Z-Boy we take that choice seriously. We introduced our Conserve Sustainable Fabrics, to offer style without compromise. With 33 different colours, and all fabrics tested for durability, with ConserveTM you won't have to worry about anything.
