Choosing Green Materials and Products for the Home
Making smarter building material choices during renovation or new home
development is a key way that you can
help green your home. In addition, everyday
decisions about household products (e.g., furniture, furnishings,
appliances, electronics, and other goods) can also
green your home and lifestyle. Keep in mind that sometimes
it takes a little work to make the greenest choices.
Different green goals may conflict with one another, and
just because a product is advertised as "green"
doesn't mean that it really is the most environmentally
friendly choice. But the more you learn and the
more questions you ask, the better equipped you will be to
find greener products. Find strategies to
help you make smarter material choices and learn how to avoid green washing here http://www.epa.gov/greenhomes/SmarterMaterialChoices.htm If you need to remove paint during your next project make sure you use safe alternatives to chemical paint stripping.
