Things to know about World Environment Day:
World Environment Day is observed to create awareness across the world to protect our environment. Every year, we celebrate World Environment Day to remind people of the importance of our nature and environment.
In 1972, it was established as an annual event by the United Nations (UN).
World Environment Day Theme 2021 is Reimagine. Recreate. Restore.
For the first time, it was celebrated with the slogan ‘Only One Earth’.
Here are some creative ways to celebrate World Environment Day at home by introducing some greener and eco-friendly solutions.
1. Grow Plants:
Do you know plants are a great way to purify the air? Adding houseplants or indoor plants to your home décor can give a greener and fresh look.
Having indoor plants not only improves air quality but also can be a nice decoration for your home. Studies show people who are more connected to nature have good mental health.
Indoor or houseplants are great at absorbing toxins such as ammonia, benzene, and formaldehyde. You can consider adding bamboo, Spider plants, and ferns that are effective decontaminants.
By adding plants to your home décor, you can save plenty of money for decoration and create an eco-friendly look.
2. Use LED lights
Lighting is an essential topic in every room in your home.
To create an eco-friendly home, you need to get energy-efficient electrical appliances and replace all your bulbs with LED or incandescent light bulbs.
The fluorescent lighting has mercury, other harmful elements and needs plenty of energy. LED bulbs are energy-efficient alternatives that save electricity and money in the long run.
You can also make sure to use natural light throughout the day whenever possible to come closer to nature.
3. Go for Natural Air Fresheners
Do you like good fragrances in your home?
If yes, then go for natural air fresheners to improve the ambiance of your home. You can try citrus air freshener, oil diffuser, essential oil air freshener spray, and more. The natural and sweet fragrance of natural fresheners can improve your mood and make you stress-free.
4. Burn Eco-friendly candles
Candles are the most popular and loved home décor items.
If you love candles, try eco-friendly candles instead of conventional ones. Conventional candles made of paraffin wax are harmful to our environment as they emit carbon into the air.
Use eco-friendly candles like beeswax and coconut wax to reduce the harmful effects to a certain extent. You can also consider sustainable candles made of soy-coconut blends that are better than their paraffin counterparts.
5. Consider Recycled Materials for Decoration
People spend a lot on decoration items every year.
Do you know a big fraction of decoration items made out of plastic? Buy decoration items made out of sustainable materials. The eco-friendliest option would be producing your decoration at home from recycled materials.
To justify your purpose of creating an environmentally-friendly home on this World Environment Day, you can shop OEKO-TEX® certified cotton Feather & Stitch sheets, pillow covers, and duvet covers. We use environmentally-friendly production methods and the best materials.
Green living is essential to implement in our homes that promote a healthier lifestyle without compromising on comfort.
