“Green” Decorator’s and Their Choice of Antiques

 

 Antique iron beds have turn into one of the most well-liked furniture products being used today with “Green” decorators. As we all know, there are no better sustainable items than antique furniture. Their “atomic footprint” has already been determined and subtracted from the environment. It’s impact, whatever it may have been has been lessened over the previous 150 to 200 years to the point of next to absolutely nothing. Yet to attempt to and create that same item today, would leave a terrible impact on the environment and air we breath.

Iron beds have gone through generation to generation and still maintained their original strength and splendor. They take absolutely nothing from the environment to create as do reproductions that are presently being made and require new steel production and all the power essential to create them. New York, Texas and Florida decorators seem to be at the forefront of “green decorators” and iron beds seem to be one of their favorite decorating items.

When man can put back into use an item that was employed over the years, he has helped put us back on a course that we need to be on, if we’re ever going to conserve our planet for our children and generations to come. For us to keep generating items today that take away from our world more than we’re able to give back, puts us on an eventual collision course with extinction. As remarkable as that sounds, it’s not that far fetched. Certainly  not for generations to come………but eventually. For those who choose not to believe in the “Greenhouse Effect” , you have only to look at the empirical info compiled on the melting Polar Ice Caps. The manufacturing of steel and all metals, has devastating effects that enhance global warming. So making use of iron beds, antiques and anything else  that was produced back in the 1800′s, is as responsible as we can ask people to be…….. when considering our planet and what we can do to help protect it.

So when selecting the next furniture item for your home, consider using something that may have been manufactured years ago, and still has lots of use to it…….. before going out and buying something very similar that is just newly made. We all need to be more accountable.

I’m not espousing living in a tree house because the building of new homes and the products needed are not eco aware. But what I am suggesting is the use of feasible recycled construction materials that have already left their atomic “footprint’ on the earth years ago. Recycled wood, siding, roofing materials and imitation wood products that help protect the forest, instead of the deforestation loggers have continued to employ over the years. We can’t afford to continually cut down our forest at a faster rate than we’re replanting. A significant amount of the world’s rain forests have been cut down since the 1960s, due to financial reasons. While logging is the main cause, agriculture, mining, cattle ranching, oil exploration and the creating of dams also play a important role in deforestation. These actions kill indigenous plants and cause the extinction of native wildlife as well. It is feared that the reduction of rain forests will boost CO2 levels in the atmosphere and result in global warming.

Lets all do our part in conserving our planet. I’m old enough to have stood in the audience with my parents when John Kennedy gave his inaugural acceptance speech and said Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country”.

 We can all do more………
