    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    Being eco-friendly is in vogue. Whether on the ramp or at home, a large number of people are emphasizing the use of eco-friendly products, thereby doing their bit to protect the environment. "Eco- friendly products are those products that inflict minimal or no harm to the environment. Made of natural elements/ these products are not only safe but also add an artistic dimension to one's home", explains C.K. Nair of Home stop.
    The products are made of environment sensitive material such as recycled wood, dead wood, recycled, paper, bamboo, jute, natural fibre and natural or organic cotton, "Grasses like sabai grass and vetiver can be woven to make mats, screens, bags and baskets. Old textiles can be used to make recycled paper, which can be used for packaging, lampshades, notebooks and other stationery. Recycled plastic can be used for making containers and furniture, says Minhazz Majumdar of the Bamboo store.
    Though there's been a lot of awareness about using eco-friendly products, it is still not the first thing that people look for when buying things for their homes. Eco-friendly products not only stand out in their looks but their durability is also high. "The life cycle of these products can be up to fifty years", says Majumdar.
    There are many other benefits of using eco-friendly products; by using these products, you can help decrease pollution, the destruction of forests and other ecosystems, and the amount of waste sent to landfills. A simple and yet more effective way to live an eco-friendly life is to either take public transportation for your daily commuting needs or try pooling in with your office colleagues to save fuel and reduce your carbon footprint.
    In addition to this, eco-friendly products are better for your health as they don't contain any harmful chemicals that can irritate the skin or eyes. Another benefit of using green products is the peace of mind that you're helping to make the planet a clean and safe place to live not only for your generation, but even for the generations to come.
    Growing an eco-friendly community is getting easier. There are more and more community gardens/ swap meets and farmer's markets that make it easier for an entire community to actively participate in eco-friendly activities.
