Nowadays, more and more people are becoming eco-conscious consumers. And, as we’ve just recently celebrated Earth Day (the biggest environmental movement in the world) we thought what better time to showcase several beautiful eco-friendly home storage solution swaps?
Read on to discover easy eco-friendly home storage swaps…
Why should you opt for eco-friendly storage solutions?
There are so many reasons why we should all be opting for eco-friendly alternatives when it comes to what we buy for our homes.
The most harmful material used to make storage solutions is plastic. It’s known for its significant contribution to global warming, plaguing landfills with non-recyclable items that’ll take hundreds of years to fully decompose. Plus, plastic for storage use isn’t particularly effective, commonly known for premature wear and tear.
Not only this, but deforestation also has a detrimental impact on our environment.
Of course, timber is a more environmentally friendly option when compared to materials such as plastic. But, this doesn’t take away from the fact that items made from timber are directly contributing to this problem, as timber will take years (or decades) to grow back.
So, investing in high-quality products that are environmentally friendly and made from green and renewable materials is a great way to start making a difference.
Take our premium quality Rattan products as an example. Rattan is a natural biodegradable material, which means that it can be 100% recycled.
What’s more, Rattan is harvested from a climbing plant. These plants grow exceptionally fast, meaning that any Rattan harvested from the plant will be replaced rapidly with new growth. You don’t get more sustainable and renewable than that!
When you opt for an eco-friendly alternative to storage solutions, you’ll receive a well-made product that’ll withstand the test of time - with little to no impact at all on your carbon footprint and/or the environment as a whole.
