Committed to creating a cosy eco-friendly oasis? Curating a conscious home is a thoughtful process involving much deliberation—who made my products, how were they made, and what are they made from? These questions are quite natural. It’s best to choose brands that follow thoughtful manufacturing practices, prioritising artisan handmade over mass-produced factory labour and quality over quantity. Sometimes brands may use the term sustainable loosely, while still supporting irresponsible labour practices and excessive production amounts that inevitably lead to a lot of waste. This guide will help you on your journey towards finding eco-friendly and ethical home decor to suit every aesthetic.
