Since I started Green Your Decor, I’ve gotten a lot of requests from people looking not just for eco-friendly curtains and drapes, for but eco-friendly rods, finials and other window hardware. But alas, they are not easy to come by, at least not online. There’s always the option of buying from your local thrift or consignment store, or rummaging through a family member’s unused hardware. But if you’re looking for something a bit more definite, you will appreciate this Recycled Glass Decorative Rod Set from JC Penney. You can learn more about the benefits of glass replacement here.
They are stylish, to be sure, but more importantly, the beautiful glass finials at the ends of the rod are made from recycled glass. There’s no information on whether the metal rod also contains recycled content, but the optimist in me will hope it does until I can get a concrete answer. It is available in 3 lengths: 28″-48″, 48″-86″, and 86″-120″. So if you’re like me and you like using that old designer’s trick of hanging your curtains significantly wider than the window to make it appear larger, you definitely have that option.
Happy window dressing!
