Green Space: It’s in the Air

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

Using natural light and materials, low maintenance (and easy to clean) shutters instead of curtains, hardwood floors instead of carpeting are just a few of the ways you can keep your environment healthy.
