Indoor air quality is one of the most important environmental issues.
Magazine articles and books on the subject of green living and eco-friendly products are flooding the market. Start with a book, such as The Healthy House by John Bower for great ideas that are friendly to your environment. Here are some eco-friendly tips:
- Use a low-VOC paint and water based finishes that won’t emit toxins
- House plants can improve air quality; some of the hardest workers are lilies, bamboo palms, and gerbera daisies
- Use cushions filled with cotton and wool rather than polyester or foam and covered in natural fabrics
