Although I’m not an eco-activist, like most of us I do like to try and ensure I make sensible environmental and social choices. This can open up a number of choices and products that you might not have considered, which can challenge a design project and offer a twist.
Gone are the days of expensive and often less than aesthetically appealing environmental options. We can often bring together designs with a few green additions, power a project using green energy, offset carbon or make sustainable products the star of the show. As such here’s a list of my top four environmentally sensitive products I like to use, I even have some in my home:
1. Sustainable bamboo flooring – http://www.lionkingflooring.com.au/categories/bambooflooring
2. Recycled benchtop materials – http://www.silestoneoceania.com/quartz-products/what-is-eco-by-cosentino/
3. Sustainable fabrics – http://clothfabric.com/
4. Low VOC paint – http://www.dulux.com.au/environmental-policy
