Amish bamboo furniture can make a home more eco-friendly

Trying to "green" a home isn't just better for the environment, with just a bit of planning, it can also have serious health benefits, according to The Hindustan Times.

One of the major sources of toxic buildup can be an abode's ventilation system, as improper air circulation can promote the growth of mold or carbon monoxide. The news source suggests trying to create a natural, cross-ventilation system so that fresh air is constantly flowing.

Sunlight is another important element in a home. In addition to providing important vitamin D, it can actually prevent the formation of mildew on furniture that may otherwise end up causing upper respiratory problems.

When cleaning, organic household cleaners are also a safer bet, as the news provider claims that some contain toxic chemicals that can prove hazardous to many. Simple ingredients such as soap, vinegar and baking soda can be just as effective for most areas.

Amish bamboo furniture can be a valuable addition to homes where individuals are concerned about the health of their family. These handsome pieces of Amish furniture are finished with a beautiful, non-toxic Tung oil finish and also emit less than 0.5 percent formaldehyde emissions, which surpasses conventional safety standards.
