Reuse, reduce and recycle
The next time you're having a clean up, consider donating some of your unwanted items to charity. If you're looking for a bargain or something different, why not check out the local second-hand store or antique shops and markets.
Home paints, stains and varnishes
Exterior and interior paints can be very toxic. Some containing lead, VOCs (volatile organic compounds which contain chlorinated or hydrocarbon solvents) and other toxic fumes, that are both damaging to the environment and our wellbeing. These toxic fumes can trigger headaches, asthma, nausea and long term exposure can result in nerve damage and reproductive disorders.
The good news is, there are a wide variety of environmentally responsible house paints and wood varnishes available that are non toxic, so the next time you renovate keep that in mind.
Carpets & the alternatives
Carpets emit large amounts of chemicals including formaldehyde and VOCs from backing materials, adhesives and underlay. Treatments such as stain guarding, fire retardants and moth proofing are also applied, and these chemicals are released indoors.
Carpets also act as ‘sinks’ for other pollutants such as pesticides and heavy metals. Babies and children in close contact with the floor are at high risk of exposure. Natural flooring materials such as sisal and jute can be used instead of carpets for warmth and noise reduction.
