Shopping Guide: Where To Buy Eco-Friendly Items For The Home

One of the best ways to take care of Mother Earth is to live by example and to ensure that the products you use at home are produced ethically and are environment-friendly. With so many furniture shops to choose from, it can be really challenging to find one that is eco-friendly yet stylish and functional at the same time.

If you’re thinking about going green to start doing your part for the planet, scroll down to see where you can find eco-friendly home decors that can have big positive impacts on your environmental footprint.

Of course, one of the best ways to prettify your home is through colours. However, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) that can be found in paints leave behind non-biodegradable and non-recyclable chemical waste. It can also negatively affect human health in various ways such as irritating the airways, eyes, and even threatening the nervous system. Good thing, Nippon Paint has eco-friendly products that contain little to none VOC such as its Nippon Paint Odour-less All-in-1. Now, you can splash paint on your walls without worrying so much about harmful VOC.

Shop for more than 1000 colours at Nippon Paint.

The threads used are made of single-ply yarn spun from long-staple cotton and are treated with low-impact dyes and without formaldehyde resin and toxic chemical fabric finishes. Get in your bed without thinking of toxic pesticides used in your sheets.
