Our 8 Favourite Eco-Friendly Home Decor Brands

In the 21st century, amid climate change, widening wage gaps and global pandemics, there have been uncomfortable questions about consumerism cropping up. More specifically, the viability and long-term sustainability of it. Is it really fair to go on consuming at the expense of others? Aren’t there better ways for us to enjoy these luxuries? When we eat of the fruit of human advancement, can we not plant the seed instead of tossing it away?

Okay, that got very heavy-handed very quickly. We apologise. But our point still remains. We all love eating good food, wearing nice clothes, filling our homes with beautiful things. Can’t we still do those things, but in a way that helps the planet, rather than harming it? Of course we can, or this article wouldn’t even be here! It’s why we’ve compiled this handy little list of our 8 favourite eco-friendly home decor brands. Do the world—and yourself—a favour, and check them out!

1. Accompany (Home Decor & Fashion)

In a world where mass-produced clothing, furniture and lifestyle products dominate, Accompany likes to do things differently. Every product catalogued on their store is a unique find, something culturally and aesthetically relevant. They curate the best artisanal handcrafted pieces made by local weavers, tailors and artists from Colombia to India to Kenya. Everything’s made using clean, natural raw materials in traditional techniques that have been passed down in families for generations.

This is eco-friendly home decor like you’ve never seen before. Bloomist features an attractive and pleasantly bohemian selection of decorative objects that exude personality. From small tabletop decorations to candles to vases, and even handmade textile pillows and throws, their selection is a minimalist’s delight. But by far their most unique offerings are their catalogue of botanicals. But these aren’t the tacky fake flowers you find at the dollar store. These beautifully crafted ‘Ecofaux’ pieces are made from upcycled PET and bioplastics, and they’re incredibly realistic. They also sell dried botanicals in various natural colours that would simply pop in your home.

3. Abyss and Habidecor (Towels, Rugs)

With their unique business model, they’ve successfully married a deep passion for design with their desire to empower their workforce.
