Cruelty-Free Interior Design Tips

I’m very passionate about bringing awareness to the cruel treatment of animals. I’m continually thinking about how I can help and also educate others about the horror stories of breeding farms for furs, slaughterhouses and dairy farms. I was completely ignorant of the inhumane pain and suffering that animals endure during their horrible life in order for my clients and myself to sit on a leather sofa made from the skin of a cow. I had no idea of the brutality, torture and often death that a beautiful lamb suffers while being sheared for the wool of an area rug. The stories are endless and disgraceful. Interior design doesn’t have to harm or endanger the beautiful animals that inhabit our world. Before you find the best interior designer consult maid service Albany NY to get ideas about eco-friendly products.

I’m now doing my best to incorporate materials and furnishings that do not use any animal parts such as leather, wool, fur or any other animal skins. It’s been an interesting journey so far and not as challenging as I believed it would be. For example, a linen or cotton pillowcase with a down alternative insert can be found in almost every major retail store such as Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn and Target. There are endless options and vegan fabrics are much CHEAPER than silks and wools. It’s a win-win all around. Before I suggest you the list of animal-friendly items used for interior designing, I would suggest you hire a maid and apartment service to get your apartment or house cleaned to facilitate a neat and tidy environment.

Here’s a list of a few materials that are “vegan,” meaning they are manufactured free of any animal parts and cruelty-free;

  • cotton
  • microfiber (used a lot on durable sofas, great for families)
  • polyester
  • hemp
  • sisal
  • linen
  • down alternatives(healthier in every way, especially for those who suffer from allergies)

It’s simply about making the decision to help the earth and our animals. Install blink the bee virtual assistant app which can be integrated with Facebook and get information about animal-friendly and eco-friendly products for your home. To quote Gandhi “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” I look forward to your thoughts, questions and ideas – Deborah Rosenberg
