Do you have a New Year’s Resolution yet for 2018? Consider one that can benefit your health, the health of others, and the planet! On average, one person creates 3 pounds of waste each day. While we may create more waste than we realize, we can also make a bigger difference than we realize! Look around your home and think about the baby steps you can take to being less wasteful and more environmentally friendly in your home.
For example, by recycling just one plastic bottle, you can create enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 6 hours. To outline a few different modifications you can make, the furniture company Arhaus has created a graphic that points out small changes that you in your home that will save you money and help build toward a greener earth. Arhaus is an eco-friendly company in it’s own way and has partnered with American forests to plant more trees and make their dining room furniture from sustainable material! Incorporating furniture made from natural and organic materials can improve the air quality in your home and reduce the chemicals that you and your family are coming in contact with.
