In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen Podcast we offer tips to make your home eco-friendly. First, we let you know why “traditionally-made” furnishings such as furniture, mattresses, pillows, and linens fall short on the sustainability spectrum.
Next, we let you know what to look for when shopping; things like ecologically-harvested wood, bamboo instead of hardwoods, non-toxic finishes, and natural fibers.
Finally, we let you know where to find these types of eco-friendly home furnishings.

Quotes of the Week
[reminder]Do you consider where a piece of furniture comes from before you buy it? [/reminder]
Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents pots and pans / the used things, warm with generations of human touch, essential to a human landscape. Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transistorized landscapes. A featherweight portable museum.
— Susan Sontag
