Kitchen Counter Tops
Be kind to the planet! If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, a quick solution is replacing your current countertops. Recycled paper, reclaimed wood and recycled glass are just a few of your options.
Repainting with Milk Paint
Furniture and walls need a facelift? Consider using a milk paint instead of usual. Milk based paints are synthetic -free and use raw, organic ingredients. You can make your own using Martha Stewart’s recipe here.
Non-Toxic Air Mattress
Thinking of remodeling the bedroom? A green remodel can go beyond painting. Certain mattresses have been treated with synthetic and toxic chemicals. If your mattress is old, it’s time to change it with a non-toxic air mattress! You’ll sleep better knowing you’re saving the environment.
Install Energy Efficient Windows
Energy efficient windows will help save the environment and your wallet. ENERGY STAR reports that a typical home that uses energy efficient windows can save between $126-$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows.
