How to be eco-friendly on a budget?

23 November 2020

There are so many ways you can be eco friendly on a budget- simply by upcycling your current pieces or selling those on local selling sites and buying from there as well!

Facebook marketplace is an excellent place to start as well as Gumtree, Freecycle and Preloved. By searching locally you will also not be travelling far to collect allowing yourself to be a true eco warrior!

Try to have a bit of vision when searching for your piece. If you like the style or decorative detailing but hate the dark brown colour the piece can be totally transformed to your taste by using furniture paint! This will prolong the life of the piece and save landfill.

Usually you might get away with a cheeky offer on Marketplace too, so try your luck, you never know!
