When people talk about sustainability much focus is given to recycling and reducing waste, but there is more we could do. Here are our top tips on how to make your bedroom more eco-friendly. Good for you and better for the planet.
Natural materials feel good against the skin, making them the perfect fit for bedrooms. Cotton, linen and wool makes great bedding, providing comfort, warmth and high breathability. A bed made from solid wood, like this one, is hardwearing and will age well over time.
We all like the feel of soft rugs under our feet, but did you know that putting down layers of rugs will stop heat escaping from a room? So turn up the rugs, and you could be turning down the thermostat.
UPCYCLE THE OLD
There are lots of ways to include a bit of upcycling in your eco-friendly bedroom and it’s a great way to give old things new life. Like this throw and curtain panels made out of old shirts, bits of fabric and tea towels stitched together in a patchwork.
