Celebrate Earth Day Every Day With 16 of Our Favorite Sustainable Brands

By Grace Miller
These chic, sustainable brands make it easy to give your home an eco-friendly update.

Reducing your carbon footprint doesn’t necessarily mean doing a full 180 in terms of lifestyle—baby steps, such as swapping out single-use plastics for reusable options, and choosing to bike instead of drive, can add up to make a meaningful difference.

Another great place to start is in your own home. Nowadays, you can source responsibly made furniture, home decor, and kitchenware from sustainable brands that help you feel good while making your space look good.  

We’ve rounded up 16 companies doing their part to protect the planet. Shop the home goods and closet essentials below to make your space more eco-friendly not just on Earth Day, but every day.
