As green living expands across the world and can be found in many homes across Toronto (ie. reusable bags, recycling etc.) unfortunately, finding eco friendly furniture, decor, or interior design options is not as easy to find.
Much like how hybrid cars are a bit more expensive than regular automobiles requiring gas, so are eco-friendly furniture, decor, and interior design options. To some people, it’s not that big of a deal to them because they think, “well I recycle anyway so I don’t have to spend more money on eco-friendly furniture or materials.”. The problem is that people just don’t think about how a major decision like what counter top I should use or what flooring I should install can make a big difference in our world and in our lives.
For those of you that are in renovation mode or are redecorating, here are some stores you can visit for more information on what eco-friendly interior design options you have. If anyone knows any other stores or companies in Toronto that provide eco-friendly materials or merchandise, please email me so I can’t add it to the list.
