Introducing Our Eco Home Edit For Earth Day
If you're looking for eco-friendly ways to update your home, here's five of our favourite ideas to embrace this year...
We understanding it is more important than ever to make decisions that will protect our planet. Therefore, we are committed to go above and beyond industry standards to create incredible, sustainable designs for the home. Our 2022 eco-friendly living edit showcases a few of our favourite home updates and new launches for glorious green living. Introducing conscious homeware that enhances the lives of others while caring for the planet, the eco home edit includes sustainable updates, big and small. So, whether you’re making simple kitchen storage updates or looking for a new sofa, we have you covered…
1. Eat, Sleep, Recycle, Repeat
Celebrating our commitment to source sustainable products wherever possible, our latest accessories reveal beautiful recycled designs. Created to embrace the past life of a product and create a new function for the future, this is eco homeware at its best. As part of the ever-growing range, designs include a selection of gorgeous garden rugs made from 100% recycled polypropylene plastic. In addition, you can find chic candelabras made from recycled brass within our collection. Moreover, our new colourful recycled glass vases are perfect for creating a fabulous focal point for flowers. It can be easy to forget about smaller styling pieces when looking for sustainable home updates. However, these beautiful recycled designs prove prioritising sustainability in your home style spots couldn’t be easier!
2. Reusable Storage Solutions For The Eco Home
With any eco home, it’s important to include pieces that can be reused time and time again. So, looking at kitchen and bathroom storage is a great place to start. For instance, glass storage jars can be used for tea, coffee, sugar and flour. After that, all you have to do is take them to be replenished at your local zero waste store. Simple updates like this can have a huge impact making your home eco-conscious. In addition, glass bottles for soap and washing up liquid allow for sustainable refill methods and look amazing on display. However, opting for a design made from recycled glass already has to be the ultimate eco-friendly choice. So, if you are looking to switch up your kitchen storage, look no further than our recycled glass storage jars...
3. Invest In Plastic
Made in Britain, the sustainable sofa collection celebrates the beauty of combining responsible sourcing with recycled materials. Most importantly, the range is 100% foam free. As a result, the sofa features a sustainably sourced traditional wood frame and pillows made from recycled plastic bottles. With the same approach taken to the upholstery fabric, innovative technology from REPREVE® transforms plastic bottles into fibres. Firstly, there is the stunning sustainable velvet with 10 colour options. Secondly, you will find a trio of beautifully textured woven fabrics to choose from. Carefully crafted for the eco home, the collection includes three sofa sizes, a loveseat, armchair and coordinating footstool. In short, you really can’t go wrong with these beautiful furniture pieces in your journey to creating an eco-conscious home that doesn’t compromise on style!
4. Reclaim Your Home
Designed as a collection of five stand-out designs, each piece within our Sustainable Furniture range is perfect for eco home enthusiasts. For example, FSC standard wood and sustainable, reclaimed materials are all used within the design. Moreover, this collection celebrates the possibilities of using waste to achieve beautiful furniture for slow living. Similarly to our sustainable sofa range, unexpected materials are used with incredible effect. Along with reclaimed pallet wood fashioned into table legs, recycled coffee grounds from the workshop are also used to create beautiful marquetry patterns. As a result, this collection captures the essence of the eco home with ease and is a gorgeous addition to any interior!
5. Small Eco Home Updates With Lasting Impact
In addition to the physical pieces in your home, there are lots of easy sustainable updates for everyday life. In 2019 we brought back the milkman to deliver our dairy and dairy-free milk at RSG HQ. It’s a small change but with the bottles collected and re-filled every week, it has had a big impact on the amount of packaging we consume. So, we always recommend this change to anyone looking to reduce everyday household waste. Secondly, another easy update is to introduce eco cleaning products and switch to eco-friendly toilet paper. Who Gives A Crap is one of our favourites for this! Switching to renewable energy for your electricity is another easy win. Moreover, don't forget the small details that help make your home more sustainable. Opting for beeswax food wraps and embracing reusable fabric gift wrap are two easy ways to make everyday eco choices with impact.
