why not green…
eco-misconceptions debunked


What keeps you from going green? Is it too much of a hassle? You’re not sure you want to buy into “that” lifestyle? You’re not interested in giving up your car, living in a cob house and going vegan? Or you think what little you can do won’t make that big of an impact?

There are a lot of misconceptions about green living that get in the way. The biggest one might be the last thing we mentioned. In reality, every little bit does help. Your contribution may be small, but lots of tiny drops of water soon fill a bucket. We talk a lot about living green, how to do it with style, and how easy it is.

keeping green living simple and sustainable

Green living

Green living doesn’t have to be hard. We’d never suggest that anyone clean out their house and replace everything all at once with sustainably-made furniture and accessories.
