Due to the stress of a global pandemic this year, many of us have instinctively gravitated toward nature, spending more time outside, taking in soothing scenery, and appreciating the little things. Oftentimes, with that reverence for all-things-outdoors comes a desire to be more eco-friendly, too.
Luckily, there are so many ways to be sustainable in our homes, but one really big thing we can do is invest in eco-friendly furniture. Look for pieces from companies that prioritize sustainable practices. This can include sourcing materials in a way that doesn't negatively affect the environment, turning to renewable resources, and avoiding chemicals during the manufacturing process — which is also good for you and your family.
