As the design world pushes toward more sustainable means, here are a few ideas you can do in your home to step up your sustainability game...right now!
1. Painting your home?
Use low VOC paint. VOC's Volatile Organic Compounds, are carbon containing substances that easily become vapors or gases. Choosing a low VOC paint will greatly reduce carbon containing substances into the air which equals better air-quality for you and your family.
2. Switch out your Bulbs
To LED! These high efficiency bulbs consume less power than traditional incandescent. When designing a new restaurant or residence I always make sure to specify LED.
3. Start Composting.
Your home or business can start composting today. Composting has never been easier if you live in PHX. Recycled City can set you up in no time. They provide a bin and offer pick up and delivery service weekly or monthly. Why compost? Not only does it regenerate farmland, but it keeps your food waste out of landfills.
