- How much I love my husband, because I really want to give him a room like that when we have our own home, and
- How integral our electronic toys are in our everyday lives
Electronics & Gadgets
I have a secret. I hate vacuuming. It is easily one of my least-favorite chores, second only to cleaning the bathroom. I do both, of course, because they need to be done, but I rarely go about it happily. I hate lugging a heavy vacuum around from room to room hoping that the cord will be long enough to reach everywhere without having to switch outlets. It’s just not a fun chore for me. So when Dirt Devil contacted me about their Accucharge cordless stick vac that is also ENERGY STAR approved, I jumped at the chance. After all, a well-decorated home is a clean, well-kept home.
One of the things I’ve been looking to focus on more here at Green Your Decor is technology. Gone are the days when interior designers could create a room completely devoid of TVs or computers of any kind. They are an integral part of our lives and often, an integral part of our decor. So as Green Your Decor continues, I will present you with some technology options that are both stylish and green, so you don’t feel like you have to hide your computer/TV/gadgets for the sake of a well-designed room.
There are reasons all of us greenies want everyone to take care about the products they are bringing in to their homes. Reasons that will make sense to even those people who are against the whole idea of “going green.” Yes, we want to have the least impact on the Earth as possible. But we are also doing all this detoxifying and patronage of organic, natural and non-toxic products for the sake ouf our health and the safety of our families. Next time you buy a can of paint, think about whether you’d want your infant breathing in the fumes. That should be all the convincing it takes to get you to go low- or zero-VOC.
I’ll say upfront that I know this product isn’t practical, or even necessary. But how cool would it be to have this on display in your living room?! This fully functional radio will let you listen to the sounds of nature. Well…not really. But because of its sustainable construction, you’ll be able to feel like you’re listening to Mother Earth herself. Designer Singgih Kartono set out to create a product that would allow Indonesian artisans to have a sustainable form of income beyond making cheap souvenirs — one that was sustainable and socially beneficial.
