5 Ways to make your bedroom more eco-friendly

April 24th, 2009

People are ‘going green’ everywhere. From cars to groceries, consumers are wanting alternative ‘green’ energy sources and are looking for ways to reduce their own personal carbon footprint. Here are five easy ways to make your bedroom more eco-friendly.

1. Lighting – The easiest way to make your bedroom more environmentally friendly is to change the lighting. Using energy efficient light bulbs can keep your energy costs down. Enough energy would be saved to power a city of 1.5 million people if just 110 million households used just one energy efficient lightbulb in their home. Not only will you cut energy costs, but the light you will get from an eco-friendly lightbulb will last longer and be brighter.

2. Furniture – You can find eco-friendly furniture everywhere these days. Vaughan-Bassett has started a program that really helps out the environment. Vaughan-Bassett has already donated over 150,000 tree seedlings to the Virginia Department of Forestry. Once these seedlings are planted, the company replaced every tree that has ever been used in the domestic production of its bedroom and dining room suites. There are also more ways to produce furniture in environmentally friendly ways.

3. Bedding – The most important thing you do to make your bedroom eco-friendly is to get eco-friendly bedding. You can easily find organic sheets, pillows and comforters. Latex mattresses are the most environmentally friendly mattresses on the market. Latex foam is found and produced naturally. These mattresses are naturally hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.

4. Rugs – Earth-friendly rugs are everywhere these days. Eco-friendly rugs are made from bamboo, jute, sisal, coir and seagrass. Rugs are a fun way to make your bedroom environmentally friendly and add a splash of personality.

5. Paint – Did you ever think you would be able to use eco-friendly paint? Low VOC or zero VOC do not contain the harmful chemicals that other paints do. These paints are safer and more efficient than regular paint.

Making your bedroom eco-friendly is easy to do these days. Use energy efficient lightbulbs, furniture, rugs and paint. Don’t stop there though, think of what you can do to help out and feel free to comment on this post to share your ideas! Making your bedroom eco-friendly is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with these great ideas.
