Going green has never been easier or more affordable than it is right now. In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of the options available for going green in the bedroom. While some would argue that environmentally friendly purchases can be costly, I would counter that it doesn’t always have to be. Here’s a look at some green options for the bedroom that run the budgeting gamut.
Water Powered Clock
For the budgeting extremists out there, ThinkGeek offers a Water Powered Clock for under $12. It operates by drawing power from the electrons in your water, coffee, soda, or other liquids. This clock can even double as a vase for holding fresh flowers, bringing a touch of natural beauty to your bedroom. Stylish, multi-purpose, green, and inexpensive, you can’t go wrong buying it for yourself or as a gift for the environmentally conscious person in your life.
Linear Magazine Rack
In a slightly higher pricing tier, Green-Furniture.com offers a Linear Magazine Rack made from two pieces of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified SmartWood for under $50. Designed for aesthetically holding magazines within an arm’s reach of any reading location, it can also be used for stylishly organizing many items found around the bedroom. So get those books, CDs, records, or whatever it is you have scattered around on the floor, and prominently display them in an environmentally sensitive way.
Reclaimed Wood Dresser
For those with a little more pocket change to spend, West Elm offers a wide variety of beautiful, eco-friendly bedroom furniture, such as this Emmerson 8-Drawer Dresser. While $1400 may be a hefty price tag on a dresser for most of us, remember that it’s a handcrafted, one-of-a-kind piece. Constructed from a selection of unique, reclaimed natural woods, this dresser is going to serve you well for years to come.
Reclaimed Pine Clock
If you like the look and feel of the Emmerson dresser, but find the cost is a bit out of range, West Elm also offers an Emmerson Clock for a much more reasonable price. Undoubtedly, this clock will add a touch of rustic sophistication to your bedroom without putting a big dent in your wallet.
It’s not hard to go green, and it’s becoming more affordable than ever before. You no longer have an excuse to carry on purchasing products that negatively affect the world in which we all live. So thank the environment by designing your eco-friendly bedroom today.
