Faux over fur
There are many faux fur options available as throws, blankets, pillows and upholstery fabrics. They are very soft and gorgeous and come in so many varieties. Fabricut is an alternative of faux fur which can be used for custom small piece upholstery, bedding and pillows.
Animal friendly paints
We should look for cruelty free paint which is eco-friendly with low or zero emissions for a healthier home.
The best way we can do is we can find some vintage furniture and give them new life with a total vegan renovation instead of using laminated wood furniture.
Plants like Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, and English Ivy are some good choice for our homes which purify air and eliminate toxic gases.
We should choose these made of natural products and not made from animal skin or teeth. This is the just the beginning of choices and options that are available and are becoming mainstream every day. The more we choose vegan products the more we can continue to live an innovative and healthy lifestyle.
