At first, the term "sustainable decoration" can make you think of a decoration that is based solely and exclusively on recycled materials such as bottles, cans, pallets, tires and other objects that would have garbage as an inevitable end. But it is not quite there.
A sustainable decoration has a broader and more comprehensive concept ranging from the choice and conscious purchase of products that do not impact the environment, as well as the subsequent reuse of them.
Changing into kids, it works like this: you'd better opt for a new decorative piece made of bamboo, for example, an extremely eco-friendly material, than buying something plastic and then reusing it to create a decorative piece. This is because the plastic production process is much more aggressive to the planet than bamboo. Not to mention that it is necessary to take into account the time of decomposition of this material when it is finally discarded - because nothing lasts forever.
So from this point of view, sustainable decor is something much bigger than simply using pet bottle to make a trunk door. However, recycling is one of the arms of sustainable decoration and should rather be practiced by all when the consumption of certain materials prove fatally necessary. So we will teach you in this post how to practice recycling for decorative purposes, contributing to the reduction of consumption and a green and ecological awareness. Follow:
