Whether added to enhance the “green” feeling of a home or preexisting in a more traditional house, a conservatory is a wonderful way to enjoy nature through most of the year. It’s also an excellent spot for entertaining, summer meals and enjoying warm summer evenings. Because of the many appealing reasons to use it often, it’s important to select conservatory furniture that will complement and enhance the atmosphere.

Cane furniture, commonly referred to as wicker, is the perfect accent for a conservatory for many reasons. First and foremost, uncolored cane furniture offers a lustrous, natural hue that enhances the beauty of a natural surrounding. Natural wicker is a favorite for outdoor seating areas, or for interior rooms that want to bring an element of nature indoors.

While hardwoods such as teak or oak may seem to overpower a natural area, cane furniture made from bamboo or rattan will offer an extremely earthy look that will increase the beauty of the conservatory rather than competing with it. Not only will it look as if it simply belongs, the woven pattern provides a light, airy look that will not weigh down a conservatory’s seating area.

We desire our our houses to be sparkling clean, right? That is because we want to be safe and free ourselves and our families from toxins and other harmful effects we could get from dirt that may compromise our health. Despite the rigorous cleaning using the most commercially effective cleaning products that is in the market today, we are never so sure that these products are safe on our health.

Truth is, commercially prepared cleaning products can trigger asthma and allergy attacks! Our homes may therefore be clean, but it may not also be safe. So, if commercially prepared cleaning products are not an option for us, what do we have then? Well, we can choose to go organic….environmentally friendly cleaning products goes a long way towards ensuring our home with clean and fresh air, with this, we can breathe a little easier and deeper. Plus, with the added benefit of the thought that we are not doing any harm to our environment.

The usual household kitchen cabinet stocked with cleansers can carry up to 62 toxic chemicals, more than what is found in a chemistry laboratory. They can leave our homes clean, but these chemicals can wreak havoc to our health and to our environment.

Green Clothing

Posted by admin, under Uncategorized

Those who most want to go green with their clothing often find that it costs too much for their budget. While green clothing might be beautiful and good for the environment, it also needs to be good for our pockets. However, we need to look at how we wear clothing. While a cheap shirt might seem to cost less, if it looks like a rag within a year it will have to be thrown out. But if we buy something that costs more and find it stays looking good for years we’ll get so much more wear out of it that it will end up being cheaper in the long run.

However if you stop to think about it, the clothing you already have is green clothing, whether it has a tag to say so or not. Your present clothing will not cost the environment any more than it already has. All you need to do is care for it in a ‘green’ manner. Using green laundry products and washing in cold water are ways to go green. Fabric washed in cold water saves the environment in two ways because it often doesn’t need ironing. Clothing bought at the op-shop or swapped with friends can also be considered ‘green’.
