Green Your Bedroom: Furnishings
Tip #1: Consider the Hardware
What’s a bedroom without furniture? Whether you’re seeking a bed frame or a boudoir, consider buying it used at a thrift store, garage sale, or a site like Craigslist; if it’s not perfect, you can always polish or paint it once you get it home. If you feel you must purchase a new piece, look for items made of reclaimed, Poly, or FSC-certified wood. As for that nightstand, think through what you top it with. Good choices include an energy-saving lamp, an alarm clock that runs off nothing but water, and eco-themed books.
