Your kids are precious. You would do anything for them. Give them a green future; it is vital and necessary. It is also smart, as it is much healthier and conservative. Taking less now leaves more for our children later. Your child may not see an entirely eco-friendly world outside, but you can give them a green room and clothes to start.
Green furniture is made durable so any attempt to drag it to the landfill will be off-set for a while. Furthermore, conventional furniture and clothing is made with dyes and finishes that will continue to emit from that fabric or material for the rest of its existence and yours. Let your kid breathe truly clean air while pure fabrics keep them comfortable.
