After the big holiday it is an opportunity to continue the green theme by continuing greening the home.  The holiday is not the only reason to bring in plants or  vegetation.  Often, the holiday is when we go green with the proverbial tree yet, green and environmental centric can continue year round. The thought on “Interior decorating tips for the holiday season: repurposed, sustainable and sparkly” can be continued through out the year changing one’s space to greener.

“This year’s holiday season is taking on a decidedly modern twist, with an emphasis on recycling and re-purposing old decorations, utilizing sustainable decor, and adding sparkle to complete the look. Shari Canepa, American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), member, LEED Green Associate, and a member of the interior design faculty at The Art Institute of California – San Francisco, a campus of Argosy University, says that sustainability begins with the icon of Christmas: the Christmas tree,” posts the Sentinel Source.

The traditional tree “no longer has to be artificial or cut. Bring a potted tree into your home with the intention of planting it after Christmas in the yard. The idea is to save a tree and plant a tree, giving a gift to nature after Christmas.” Canepa recommends creating a new focal point in the public area of your home to reinforce the spirit of the season.”

I recommend after the removal of the festive tree or ornamental focal point to replace it with a living plant within the home. This plant brings life into the home with the value add of cleaning the air.  The goal is to repurpose the space with a living structure bringing green to the home and family.

    In terms of a practical understanding of nature, compared to the bees we are but infants.
    Herbs that bolt easily in response to heat, such as cilantro, should be placed on the east-facing slope so that they are
    protected from the afternoon sun. The birds are singing,
    and no traffic can yet be heard.

Have a Sustainable Day My Friend!
