What makes sustainable homeware brands different from regular homeware brands? Sustainable homeware focuses on creating and selling products that are eco-friendly, less damaging to the environment, use clean and local production methods, ethical labour and sustainable raw materials. Moreover, they should have a transparent supply chain, an FCS certification and incorporate fair trade practises. Opting for sustainable furniture is the way forward, as they are high quality and are made from natural materials that do not contribute to the existing pollution. Going green is the right way forward!
