With everything going on in the world, it's no surprise that many people are turning to Pinterest for all types of inspiration. But there are a few categories in particular that have spiked recently — searches for "support small business" have increased 351%, "eco-friendly living" by 93%, zero waste products" by 108%, and "sustainable gifts" by 73%.
With these spikes in mind, and to tie in with Earth Day, Pinterest tapped Lauren Conrad, founder of the sustainable nonprofit Little Market, to feature a few of her favorite eco-friendly picks. "The Little Market prioritizes eco-conscious practices in every step of our process," she explains in a quote on her Pinterest page. "We connect with artisan groups and social enterprises that implement sustainability, including using recycled and locally grown materials whenever possible, and incorporate eco-conscious practices within our internal operations."
