In today’s blog post we will be discussing the usage of water and how certain types of usage can be labelled as a need vs. a necessity in terms of their relationship with artificial plants. When looking at the implications of using water in today’s world it is important to understand what is a want and what is a necessity. Before we even begin to talk about artificial plant products such as: foliage, trees, topiaries, and flowers we must look into these two topics. When it comes to water usage wants are something that is justified for using massive amounts of water to maintain. An example of this is turf on various sports field. If you have ever been an athlete and played on regular “authentic” grass you know it is MUCH better than the artificial turf that some large university and professional sports teams use. The small little beads that you find in artificial turfs completely ruin the fun and excitement of getting hit or making a huge play for the team while sacrificing your body for landing on the ground. With real grass it is a much more enjoyable playing atmosphere, but is it a necessity to have enjoyment for a sport we play? Could technology expand in the coming years so that artificial turf is less brutal on the body and more authentic to the touch? I believe both of the answers to these questions is yes, and that once people begin to realize the potential dangers of using water for things that are “wants” vs. “necessities” then we will finally begin to have a better way of life that is beneficial to use and the environment.
When it comes to artificial plant products it is imperative to see how beneficial to the success of our future. The lack of awareness when it comes to understanding how much humans are having an impact on the environment is quite scary to be honest. Each year we are given statistic after statistic about how we are breaking records of cold and heat, how freshwater is becoming more scarce, and how many animals are displaced from their environments because of deforestation. Water usage is the one that is most staggering, as millions of people go each day without clean freshwater. With these facts it would be hard to not feel some sort of emotion and feel sorry for the parts of the world that struggle with this. More likely than not if you are reading this blog entry then you do not deal with these issues, and it may be hard for you to think of ways to take action to combat them. The easiest way is to first recognize needs vs.wants and then look into the ways to change habits that are consuming too much water.If it is starting with your landscape design or home decor in terms of plants then this is a good time to look into wants and necessities. Yes, it is always nice to have all-natural plants that need to be cared for and nurtured to grow. There is a certain amount of enjoyment one gets from seeing something grow in front of their eyes under the care of there watchful eye. At the same time, using water to maintain large amounts of plants whether in your home or outside can be somewhat wasteful in this day and age. When natural resources are running short each year we must prepare to take the necessary precautions so our children's’ futures are not in jeopardy. Take some time to reflect on the ways you use water in terms of landscape design and home decors, and really think about that is important at them moment. As we dwell on these sometimes hard to answer topics we will go into the benefits of using artificial plants, and we will show you how us at Commercial Silk International has made the transition from authentic to fake simple and effective.

In a world where the environment seems to be taking a downward spire each year, it is time we look at the facts and start deciding on whether we want to make a change or keep going down the path in front of us. It does not matter whether you believe humans have a global impact or not, the facts are that more and more people live without freshwater and that more and more people waste it on things we feel are necessary. As we continue to live in this world we must look at the reasons we use water and try to justify it not for ourselves, but for the world and people around us.
The Embassy Suites Waltham, formerly the DoubleTree Waltham, is located in the High-Technology, Pharmaceutical, and Life Sciences Belt, near Boston’s colleges and universities. The hotel was in need of a renovation and interior update to keep up with the fast pace of the neighborhood and stay within its brand standards of a heavy emphasis on botanicals. Embassy Suites Hotels was looking to reduce the cost of maintaining existing live plant material and obtain a hipper, fresher, cleaner look.
The Embassy Suites contacted Commercial Silk Int’l to explore the possibilities of a giant replica prairie grass addition.
Embassy Suites Hotels contractors immediately took to the idea of using
giant replica prairie grass to create a unique display of contrasting green and lavender to instantly uplift the space. By utilizing existing containers, giant replica prairie grass was installed to add drama and color, and was executable on-site. The giant replica prairie grass added height and texture, and strengthened the design for this destination hotel. The addition of a rarely seen design element provided a modern aesthetic to what was already a chic guest experience.
