Buying Antiques and Going Green

Because of the new US Government green policy incentives, companies now are very interested in going green with their products. From sheets to rugs the options are growing every day.

We can protect our families and the planet by choosing products made from renewable resources. 100% organic vegetable dyes and machine free rugs are being produced by Tufenkian rug company. Mattresses and linens without harmful dyes and chemicals are also in the market now. ABC Carpet owner says that buying antiques is the greenest choice you can make. Avoiding the opening of new factories and pollution related to the manufacturing of new furniture and saving the trees is something to think about.

We are always trying to find nice pieces of furniture that have a good and classic design and are well made with beautiful woods that can fit in any contemporary interior. Antique furniture, believe it or not, sometimes ends up in a dumpster when its owner does not recognize its value or how its style can be effectively incorporated into the design of a room.

Our idea is Preserve, Revitalize and Save for a better future of our planet.

I think that is something that is often overlooked...if you have to buy something, why not buy what is already out there.  If you have to go new, great...make a green choice.  But I try to employ the concept of buying something used first.  Whether you buy in a consignment store or through an on-line service like Craigslist or E-bay.  You save unwanted items from going into the landfill & prevent the cost & impact of manufacturing a new item.

Cristina, it should be totally obvious that going the antique route is the best of recycling!  I have a lot of old stuff that I love and that got recycled from almost going to the dump.

And when you need garden stakes (as i just turned mine) go for a walk,you'll find plenty already off the trees and on the ground.

No need to cut down a tree to turn it into a stake when they are all around you and free

enjoy the day
