1000 Flowers for the Planet - #500 Decorate with 100% Natural Fibres
Here’s another home decorating choice you might make to help the planet. If you always choose 100% natural fibres for all your curtains, cushions, carpets, rugs, furniture – anything with textiles – you will be choosing materials that are sustainable because they can be grown again. The natural fibres are wool, cotton (go for organic), silk and linen. All of these make beautiful, lush home décor items that will last a long time. Being able to grow these fibres means we can keep producing them when we manage our resources properly. Using only natural fibres also means that we are not putting more plastic into our environment when the material breaks down into tiny particles that get into the environment and our waterways – which is a huge problem. Choosing only natural fibres for our home also creates a healthier environment in which to live.
