Sustainability has become an increasingly important consideration in our daily lives, so we are committed to growing our range of eco-friendly products that not only leave less environmental impact than mass-produced high street products, but also offer functionality and style.
With Earth Day 2023 recently passed, investing in sustainable purchases are at the forefront of our minds, to make better choices towards achieving a sustainable lifestyle.
Recent trends have shown that shoppers are becoming more and more conscious with the items they're bringing into their homes, as the environmental impact of fast fashion brands are becoming seemingly more vivid, leaving an irreversible carbon footprint.
In this blog, we'll be giving you ideas of some sustainable products and home accessories to refresh and decorate your homes, without sacrificing style.
Recycled Cotton Towels
Firstly, let's take a closer look at the Remnant Recycled Cotton Towels. These affordable towels are a great example of re-purposing waste materials.
Our Remnant Towels are made using recycled cotton, which basically means that they're made from threads and scraps of discarded that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.
By re-purposing cotton scraps and remnants, we're able to reduce waste and create a sustainable product that's both stylish and durable.
Both super soft and absorbent, recycled cotton towels are perfect for drying your hands, face, or body.
Also available in a range of sizes, making these multicoloured towels a versatile and practical choice for any bathroom or kitchen.
Due to the re-purposed materials used, these towels are individually and wonderfully unique, featuring a beautiful array of stylish coloured yarns.
The colour palette of these towels are certain to compliment a broad range of design choices by adding a trendy pop of colour or a statement piece to your bathroom.
Also made from recycled materials, the Popcorn Textured Towels are another great choice for making a sustainable home!
Eco-conscious Chindi Rugs
Another product in our sustainable range is the Chindi Rag Rug.
These rugs are made using recycled fabric scraps which are given new life by being carefully hand-woven together to create a beautiful, colourful rug that's both eco-friendly and stylish.
Because of the nature of recycled textiles used, each Chindi Rug is beautifully unique, with its own individual blend of colours, meaning that no two rugs the same.
The durability of Chindi Rugs make them incredibly versatile, being able to withstand lots of wear and tear, making it a great choice for the home. Despite recycling previous scraps, the quality of these rugs is not sacrificed.
Additionally, our collection of rag rugs are available in a wide range of sizes, making them suitable for use in any room of the house.
A small rag rug could make a colourful addition in your hallway, whilst a large rag rug can make a bright statement piece beside your bed space.
All in all, a Chindi Rag Rug compliments a broad range of interior design styles, injecting colour to any flooring without inducing any long run impact on the planet.
Innovative bath mats
When it comes to choosing a bath mat, there are many different options available.
However, if you're looking for something that's not only functional but also stylish, a Cornish Blue coloured Diatomite Bath Mat might be just what you need.
Diatomite is a naturally occurring sedimentary rock that's made up of the fossilized remains of tiny diatoms.
It's a highly absorbent material that's able to quickly soak up moisture, making it a great choice for a bath mat.
Additionally, diatomite is naturally antibacterial, which means it's resistant to mould and mildew, making it the perfect hygienic choice for use in the bathroom.
This diatomite bath mat comes in 4 stylish colours, but we are particularly loving the bright shade of Cornish Blue, which adds a beautiful touch of style to any bathroom.
This shade of blue is reminiscent of the sea, making it perfect for creating a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.
Another advantage of a diatomite bath mat is that it's incredibly easy to clean and doesn't cost a penny! There is no need to spend money on electricity and water to wash it.
Simply scrub the surface with sandpaper to remove and stains.
This is a great feature for people who want a low-maintenance bath mat that still looks great.
Ultra soft and sustainable
If you're looking for more soft furnishings for your bathroom, consider an ultra soft bamboo bath mat.
Bamboo plants are a renewable resource that grows quickly and without the need for pesticides or fertilizers, making it a great choice for environmentally conscious consumers.
There are many benefits of bamboo products, both to you and the planet.
Firstly, as bamboo and cotton is grown naturally, these bath mats are incredibly soft and also super absorbent, making them a luxurious addition to any bathroom.
This thick heavy weight mat will provide underfoot comfort, whilst providing safety thanks to its slip resistant backing.
Co-ordinate these sustainable bath mats with colour matching bamboo towels, which are buttery soft and perfect on sensitive skin.
Available in four sizes: face towels, hand towels, bath towels and bath sheet - style out your whole bathroom with seamless and sustainable style.
The natural fibres of the bamboo cotton blend also make these towels more breathable than traditional cotton towels.
This can help prevent mould and mildew build-up, and doesn't leave your towels smelling funny after a single use.
The blend of bamboo and cotton also creates a material that's strong and long-lasting, so you won't have to replace these as often as you would with traditional towels and bath mats.
Small steps towards a big change
In conclusion, adding sustainable furnishings to your home can ultimately make a big difference in the wider picture.
By re-purposing fabrics that would have otherwise ended up in landfills, we're able to give and new lease of life to unwanted materials and create beautiful and functional soft furnishings that are both durable and stylish.
If you're looking to make your home more sustainable, these eco-friendly products are a great place to start.
Rethinking what materials you want to invest in will lead you to creating a more sustainable lifestyle for yourself, and making your home a greener and happier place to live.
