Make repairs and want to follow environmentally friendly trends? Wonderful. Today we will tell you what to pay attention to within the framework of all eco-standards and energy-efficient preferences.
Many people consider green technologies expensive, but in fact, green alternatives are not much more expensive (and sometimes do it and cheaper). It’s more difficult to find them, because almost all manufacturers write “environmentally friendly” on their product, even if we are talking about far from green plastic (from this article you will learn the reasons why the plastic is not green).
In the future, real green technologies always benefit and save money (read here about how much we save on energy -efficient practices and how much we spend on them), as well as emissions that cause climate problems on the planet.
Not only manufacturers and large companies can affect the climate. Each homeowner can contribute to the fight against climate change. To do this, you need to give preference to manufacturers who not only produce environmentally friendly products, but also take care that their factories are energy -efficient and green.
You can read about energy-efficient eco-repair here and here, but here and here you will find information on how to make repairs in the kitchen according to green standards. And here, here and here [you can read about the construction of green houses and care for them and there is information about the creation of green parking lots on the site.
Choose not only natural materials, but also materials that have been produced and transported with a minimum of influence on nature. Not all materials called environmentally friendly are, but not all the products created in the laboratories are toxic and harmful to nature. For example, today you can find a really environmentally friendly linoleum made from processed materials and natural oils. It is considered green, because processed products went to its production.
And certain brands of parquet, which seems to all natural, can be an exceptional problem for nature:
If the deforestation was illegal, then the manufacturer of raw materials initially caused the environment for the environment.
If raw materials or finished goods were drove for a long time, then the vehicle causes emissions of a large number of greenhouse gases.
· If the production is not energy -efficient, then the plant throws too many greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
If something toxic was used to cover the parquet, then it is also harmful to health as for nature.
Furniture can also be made of different materials, some of which are better than others. For example, chipboard and MDF can be environmentally friendly and not environmentally friendly. Environmental materials are made without toxic components and in energy -efficient production, but, unfortunately, at the moment, all manufacturers of chipboard and MDF call their products environmentally friendly, even if they use formaldehydes, toxic glue, harmful solvents, etc. P. (This can be read more about this in this article). And almost none of the existing manufacturers are trying to minimize its harm to nature.

You are unlikely to lose if you choose furniture from an array, but it is expensive. Therefore, the only good option is the choice in favor of brands that openly describe production processes and fully list the compositions of their inzhened wood.
When you choose a technique or plumbing, you should pay attention to energy -efficient models. For example, the drain tanks that save water (read here  other tips on how to save water in the house) or household appliances of the Energy Star category (here  you can learn about the choice of a green refrigerator, and here  more  information on how to save electricity).
