there’s an app for that… greener décor through technology

For most people, a smart phone is a near constant companion. And why not? They keep us connected, help us organize our lives and even direct us to recycling facilities, sustainable seafood choices, and even help plan a greener vacation. With all that power at our fingertips, why can’t it help with greener décor?

Oh, but it can… yep, from DIY home improvement projects to picking a paint color, there’s an app for that. Here are a few handy ones we like, but these are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to great décor apps.
