Posted by admin on

These environmentally savvy companies make it easy to give your home an eco-friendly update.

Reducing your carbon footprint doesn’t necessarily mean doing a full 180 on the lifestyle front—baby steps, like swapping out single-use plastics for reusable options, or choosing to bike instead of drive, can add up to make a difference.

Another great place to start being more environmentally conscious is in your own home. Nowadays, you can source of-the-moment furniture, decor, kitchen essentials, and more from purveyors who are committed to sustainability. By shopping these brands, you can help make a small—but mighty—difference. It’s an easy way to feel good while making your space look good—and who doesn’t want that? 

We’ve rounded up 15 companies doing their part to protect the planet. Shop the home and closet essentials below to make your space more eco-friendly not just on Earth Day, but every day.

The Citizenry set out to build a company that celebrates the people and places behind the products they sell. They partner with master artisans from around the world, blending modern style with time-tested techniques. By personally traveling to each country and using only local materials, they avoid material shipping emissions to produce immaculately crafted, fair-trade goods.

The Citizenry Adia Planter

This planter is a real gem. Paired with a tiny cactus or air plant, it makes the perfect gift. Its geometric form featuring the rich Mugavu wood grain makes it a sculptural work of art for desk or shelf styling. Brilliantly hand carved from a single block of wood by master artisans, the craftsmanship behind this piece is stunning. Each piece is hand carved by a group of fifteen seasoned woodworkers in the Nakawa region, made exclusively in a fair trade environment. In the spirit of sustainability, the cooperative replants trees to replenish this precious resource for future generations. Photo Courtesy of Gardenista
