Did you know what the eco-friendly options for floor and wall coverings are, and how to properly ventilate your space? Check out this video:
Looking for a unique way to add visual interest to a feature wall or to use in your new custom furniture piece?
The solution might just be Ecotextures. These architectural panels manufactured by Architectural Systems, Inc. are made from environmentally friendly OSB (oriented strand board). Their beautiful grain texture makes them attractive enough to be used for column covers, feature walls, millwork and furniture.
The manufacturer’s eco-friendly approach is shown not only by the use of rapidly renewable timber. No urea-formaldehyde is used, and component lumber is SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certified.
Easy to install panels come in different patterns (like Tiers, Basketweave, Pyramids, and Stripes), colors and sizes. You can also add coordinating flat panels and flooring.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) produced by our computers, televisions, cell phones, wireless networks, microwave ovens and other electronics have a questionable influence on human health. It is said they might generate free radicals that can be toxic to your brain and promote loss of memory and dementia. Research shows higher rates of Alzheimer’s in people exposed to EMFs.
To minimize your exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR):

A living wall is a wonderful solution for improving the quality of the air inside our home or office. The plants will filter the air, enrich it with oxygen, and stabilize the humidity level. I love designing green walls since they free other surfaces of plants, minimizing the risk of damage to furniture and flooring.
One way of installing living walls inside your home or outside, is a Wally Pocket – a flexible container made out of breathable felt derived from recycled plastic bottles (PET). Thanks to the moisture barrier, it is safe to use indoors. Its modular nature allows for grouping in countless configurations, depending on the size of the wall or the type of application.
I like the fact that Wally Pockets are made in USA. I also appreciate that they are just one of many containers by Woolly Pocket.
Their other products can be used as free-standing plant containers (Islands) or modular gardens (Meadows).
You can even choose the color - they are available in chocolate, camel and blue, in addition to black. The outdoor version is unlined, and some of the freestanding containers have cool zippers (so trendy!) to adjust the size.
This spring, I’m installing (planting?) my own living wall. How about you?
