How to Green a Small Space

Use Eco-Friendly Wall Decorations
To make your small space seem bigger decorate your walls. This way you will make the most of your space and add your own personal touch to your area. Check out all the eco-friendly decorations from reusable wall stickers to environmentally friendly paints. Greenyourdecor is a good way to start searching for something that suits your design taste.
Decorate With Eco-Friendly Furniture
Lots of stores now offer eco-friendly furniture sets for home and office. These pieces are often made out of reusable, sustainable (bamboo) or recycled materials.
Another great way is to buy used furniture from yard sales or your local craigslist.
Minimize Your Clutter
One of the hardest parts of living or working in a small environment is the lack of space for all your stuff! To make a small space more livable, take steps to reduce your clutter. Take a look at your items and see what you can do without and that others could use. Consider donating them to your favorite charity or use Freecycle, an eco-friendly way to minimize your mess by passing along your unwanted items to someone else who could use them.
Keep Up Your Green Efforts!
Even in a tiny space, there’s still plenty of room to go green! Make sure to find a place for you recycling and compost bins. Also consider creating a nice window box garden for your favorite herbs and plants.
