Make your own recycled furniture

June 23rd, 2011 - 

You don’t have to be very skilled or inventive to make use of what you already have at home and to transform your old things into something beautiful. Be eco just by making your furniture out of items that you would throw away. You will be eco in two ways: one, is that you will prevent trash from entering the environment and secondly, that you will consume less. And less wood consuming means more forests.
See below an example of how you can transform newspapers and magazine into funriture. All you have to do is to roll the newspapers – about 20 or 30 – and arrange them as in the pictures. To make an ottoman piece of furniture like these you have to attach a pillow or a seat cushion on top of it and here you are! Otherwise, here are some advices of
how to recycle your existing furniture: you can donate it or sell it on ebay, ask your family and friends if they are interested in the furniture- and maybe they will improve it or transform it in something different. When choosing a new furniture piece, make sure it is made in good quality wood that will last longer. Try to buy at second hand stores. Or, if you do not want to buy new furniture, it is better to recondition your old one: paint it as you like, cover it in fabric or transform it in other decorative pieces.

Tips for Conserving Energy_ part 3

8. Invest in a programmable thermostat. According to the EnergyStar website, you can save as much as $180 per year on your energy bills, so these things pay for themselves pretty fast. By setting your heat at a lower temperature while you’re away or sleeping, you’ll see big energy savings without sacrificing comfort.  
9. Cover your floors. If you have tile or hardwood floors, you can keep things cozy by laying out an area rug, especially if you have a basement or crawlspace.

10. Don’t turn off those ceiling fans – reverse them! I know, it sounds crazy. Why would you run your ceiling fan when it’s cold outside? Your fan is actually a great way to keep warm air circulating in your home. Most come equipped
with a switch to reverse the direction that the blades turn. By flipping the switch and setting it on low, you can use your fan to push warm air that’s trapped up at the ceiling down to the living area. If you want to go a step further, try contacting your local utility company for an energy audit. The EnergyStar website also has some great tools for assessing your home’s energy efficiency!
