(WTOL) - These days, more and more people prefer options for their home décor that are eco-friendly.

Meteorologist James Canterbury explains that it doesn't always cost a lot of green to go green for your outdoor options.

When Jason Nixon and John Loecke built their deck, they picked a special material. "It's great design. It's easy to install." They also say, "It's basically a no-maintenance product."

The fact that it's made of recycled materials is icing on the cake for them. "It's something that certainly sold me," Jason says.

Eco-friendly Interior Designer Robin Wilson tells us, "This company uses about 1.5 million plastic bags every year, and they turn it into products that we can use, whether it's park benches or decking."

Wilson says there are more products than ever to choose from these days. "We view it as anything that is recyclable, reusable, or sustainable," he explains.

But are these eco-friendly options "friendly" to your wallet?

"We're finding prices are dropping," Wilson says, "You might pay a dollar or two more, but it's priceless for your family to have an eco-friendly outdoor option."

John and Jason say the eco-friendly route was an easy choice for them. "It was definitely worth it."
