Eco-Chic shops for your home in San Francisco
Did you make a vow to go greener last Earth Day? It might be hard to think about ways to make your San Francisco apartment greener without moving to a biodegradable yurt in the center of Golden Gate Park, so we have a few tips to make the green karma come flooding your way.
Use green cleaning products – The best way to green your home should come without any additional consumerism, so consider switching your cleaning product choices to earth-friendly alternatives. Laundry and dishwasher detergent, soaps and shampoos, floor and glass cleaners, and even scrubs are all available in a less chemical and toxic version, and you won’t have to go any further than your nearest Whole Foods to find them.
Replace your mattress with a Keetsa – this San Francisco based company is leading the charge when it comes to sustainable mattress construction. Believe it or not, there’s oil involved in the making of standard mattresses. The Keetsa mattress is not 100 percent organic, but they are positively reviewed as a very comfortable and reasonably priced alternative to the standard Sears or Costco mattress.
Make your next furniture purchase sustainable – Whether it be a refurbished find that you have returned to great condition and usability by a custom expert or simply shopping at local stores that turn old things new again – or just find the best recycled furnishings or sustainably produced products that deserve a great new home – you can add character and charm to your apartment with a special piece. A few places to look for the perfect item include Cisco Home, the East Bay’s Mignonne Décor and Branch.
