8 Ways To Make More Sustainable Choices In The Home

sustainable home choices

 

At Stripped, our focus may be on wearable items but we firmly believe that it can be simple to make eco-friendly choices throughout our day-to-day lives too. 

Our aim is to help you to dress yourself in a more conscious way, but here are our top ways to do the same for your home.

  1. Avoid trends and focus on timeless pieces that last. You’re less likely to get tired of pieces that reflect your personality.
  2. There is power in decluttering and reorganising spaces to bring new life, rather than introducing new things.
  3. Upcycle an existing piece and learn a new skill along the way.
  4. If you buy, assess what you need first and stick to a list .
  5. Aim for certified, natural materials that wear well with time.
  6. Make it fun and hit a thrift shop or antique market to find preloved items.
  7. Ask your friends. If you are inspired to change, chances are others are too and you can make a sustainable swap.
  8. Choose your plants. Greenery brings so much life to spaces, especially those that have air purifying qualities.
