Bamboo, one of the earth’s most eco-friendly materials, is both sturdy and stylish. With the growing trend towards eco friendly materials in your home, bamboo home décor is one of the fastest-growing styles. With the use of fewer chemicals and pesticides in the growing and treating process, bamboo home accessories are a safe way to decorate your home, protect your family, and support the environment all at once. Aside from flooring and furniture, there are so many ways to incorporate bamboo into your home décor. Bamboo vases are a great alternative to glass because they never get dingy, they don’t hold fingerprint marks, and they’re much easier to clean. You can also swap out your cheap plastic DVD or CD rack for a cute, yet durable bamboo alternative! Popular items often include storage units and organizers. Bamboo also makes for great lightweight folding chairs and TV stands!

Cork is world-famous since ancient times by its use in the manufacture of wine stoppers. Today, thanks to the paradigm shift described above, more and more designers worldwide are getting curious about the potential of this type of raw material. You can find the appearance of cork projects from all around the world in the top sites and blogs related to global ecology and design. On the more ecological perspective, there are a number of habitats that are entirely dependent on Cork Tree and on the whole culture around it. This is very evident especially in countries such as Portugal, Spain, France and Italy. If we continue to buy more and more Cork based furniture, home decorations or other utensils, we will increase the plantation of this tree, thus helping dangerous species that really on the ecosystem surrounding this tree.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it´s the only thing that ever has” – Margaret Mead

Recycling is not the only way to help our planet to evolve to a more sustainable and healty environment. The usage of different raw materials in industrial production, manufacture, home decoration, and so much more, can and will most definitely create a healthier planet for us, our children and grandchildren. Don´t be selfish…
