Fancying ourselves friends of the environment, we admit to going googly-eyed over interior design that takes a minimal toll on our precious resources. This week on Remodelista, the editors proved that high style can be achieved with a low impact on the world around us. Here are a few of our favorite stories from this week:
Above: As gardeners, we’re always thinking about the effect of our cleaning supplies on our local watersheds. Thanks to Alexa’s 12 Natural Garment Washes and Detergents, we now have a slew of eco-friendly options.
Above: Plastic soda bottles turned into pendant lights? We’ll take two for the patio. Read the full story in Fantastic Plastic: Lamps Made from Recycled Soda Bottles.
Above: We read Meredith’s Remodeling 101: All You You Need to Know About VOCs in Paint with our breath held. Especially considering all the black paint we’ve been admiring lately.
Above: Finding it hard to get into the recycling groove? Perhaps a snappy looking recycling system is the encouragement you need. We admired the selection in Margot’s 10 Easy Pieces: Recycling Bins.
