Our home is where we tend to spend most of our time, so it feels good to fill it with wonderful people and objects we love. We put time into choosing which color to paint the bedroom or where to place artwork and family photographs, so why not put as much thought into where our home decor comes from? As more reports share how different products and materials affect the environment (and our health), we all want to minimize our carbon footprint. Some of us have started to buy clean beauty products and ethically-made clothes, so why should our home decor be any different? Fortunately, there are plenty of awesome design brands that are stylish and sustainable.
