Sustainable Home Decor with Beautiful, Utilitarian Items from Waste Materials

Reduce, reuse and recycle – these are the three crucial steps taken by people who vote for green ethics and Eco-friendly principles. Reducing the usage to optimal level, trying to put to reuse what you are already having and reprocessing the already used – waste – materials to newer use are three elements of ‘waste hierarchy’ – which are advocated all over the world today.
Since ages, we have been collecting metal scraps like- bronze, brass, iron and later days aluminum and reusing these to forge new metal items and this has been the practice all over the world. Especially when mining was a slow and time consuming process – done manually – people were more than willing to reuse and recycle items recognizing the value of things.

But with the advent of technological advancement, things changed. And today containing carbon footprint is necessary for maintaining ecological balance. Today with the fast depletion of virgin forests and other materials and natural resources like water, air and land getting more and more polluted, going green is very important and recycling is a major step towards it.
What is recycling? When you reduce using new raw materials which could be put for better use and instead re-use materials with potential for reuse and not incinerating it or sending it to land refill, you are helping in reducing air pollution and water, land pollution. This lowers carbon emission and greenhouse gas emissions and keeps the atmosphere less polluted. Today electronics, glass, metal, paper, plastic, textiles, and leather are some of the items that are now reused and recycled very successfully. More innovative ideas are springing up to recycle items which can be used in everyday life. Governments and quasi-government agencies are actively supporting recycling and taking measures to promote it at all levels.

Furniture industry is also taking active interest in recycling and already recycled materials are being used in every aspect – like recycled glass, leather, fabrics, wood materials, and so many other ways. Sustainable interior and exterior decor has become very popular and the in-thing today with more and more designers and manufacturing companies joining the green revolution.
