3 Eco-Friendly Materials for Furniture and Home Decor

We all want our homes to look beautiful and reflect our personalities, but unfortunately, many of the materials used to make furniture and decor are far from sustainable. Don’t worry, though — Western National is here to help. When shopping for new home goods, consider options made from eco-friendly materials that have little or no negative impact on the environment.

1. Cork

Cork is a material that is used to make coasters, ornaments, and even jewelry. If you’re looking for a DIY home project, cork decorations are the way to go. There are three steps involved in creating cork decorations: cutting, decorating, and putting them together. You can customize your decorations by choosing different shapes of corks, painting them, or adding anything else your heart desires. These decorations also make great gifts.

2. Bamboo

Bamboo is not only aesthetically pleasing — it is also sustainable and renewable. The ability to grow in harsh environments and reproduce very quickly makes bamboo an extremely versatile material, and it makes beautiful furniture that can used in any setting. It is also strong enough to withstand even the harshest weather conditions, making it perfect for outdoor settings. Furthermore, its lightness allows easy mobility.
 

3. Hemp

Hemp has been used for thousands of years to make all sorts of things, and for good reason — it is one of the most durable and eco-friendly materials out there. Hardy Hemp uses hemp to create beautiful furniture items that are available for purchase online or locally. In addition, you can customize these hemp products. Select the color, dimensions, and design that suits your needs best.
