Wallpaper is also environmentally friendly. It does not contain toxic chemicals, does not require harsh solvents, is produced in a way to minimize environmental impact, does not emit odors when applied and most wallcoverings do not utilize petro-chemicals in the production process. And some wallcoverings such as grasscloth are completely natural and harvested from sustainable forests and fields.
