Four Sustainable, Eco-Friendly Home Décor Brands to Shop
While there is still a lot of buzz surrounding Earth Day, I wanted to continue to focus on the importance of becoming more environmentally conscious and aware inside the home as well as outside. I’ve been trying my hardest to find more mindful, sustainable ways I can lessen my carbon footprint on the planet. When it comes to the home, sustainability when decorating has never been an easy task for me. I’ve purchased a lot less interior items lately to keep things minimal and to avoid buying things that aren’t eco-friendly — I than began researching more environmentally sustainable décor options. To my surprise, I came across over a dozen affordable, eco-friendly furniture options available. Here are 4 of my favorite sustainable, eco-friendly home décor brands I’ve discovered online.

I’ve been in search of the perfect, statement lounge chair and landed on Myakka. Myakka offers you a way to furnish your home that’s stylish yet, unique.

I was initially drawn to the vibrancy and uniqueness of Eco Chic’s products. It turns our that the story behind their products are just as unique.

In search of specific colors and patterns, Eco Chic only chooses the best of reclaimed boatwood for their collections and every step of the wood’s reconstruction process is carried out by hand.

Obviously, for various reasons Crate & Barrel will always be an option when shopping for the home. Many are unaware that Crate & Barrel are a trusted source for bamboo-made products, handcrafted from one of the most sustainable plants in the world. Their inventory consists of thousands of sustainably sourced products. Their company “home” in Northbrook, Illinois, we have prioritized developing new products and manufacturing processes to expand the responsible choices they offer all customers. While the collection has featured renewable woods and sustainable materials for a number of years, they are continuing to explore and introduce important initiatives that will help make our homes more thoughtful environments.
