Whether you’re a new homeowner or have watched one too many home makeover shows, redesigning your interior spaces can be a fun and cathartic activity. There are countless benefits to redecorating your home. A fresh take on your living situation can improve your mood, personalize your space, and even add value to the house.
EV drivers and others who pursue a carbon-free lifestyle are always looking for ways to integrate their green values into daily routines and everyday purchases. Why not seek out sustainable products for your home decor as well? There are dozens of eco-interior design brands featuring everything from plump pillows to colorful throw rugs to sleek green energy lighting features.
Before diving into our home decor guide, let’s first discuss what makes an eco-friendly furnishing.
Look for brands that use a high percentage of recycled or reclaimed textiles in their products.
Choose features made from natural materials, like bamboo and stone.
Opt for reusable substances like glass, metal, hardwood, and ceramics.
Prioritize B Corp brands that meet reputable certification standards like the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, ECOLOGO, or Greenguard.
Avoid mega-sites like Wayfair and Amazon and support local artists and craftspeople instead.
And finally, purchase timeless pieces that make you happy — you’ll be less likely to replace them as your tastes change.

Shopping from Etsy sellers can be an easy way to find sustainable products that support small, local businesses. Etsy is a massive platform, though, so it’s difficult for the company to regulate each and every seller (consumers need to be wary of mass-produced nonsense). However, some Etsy shops are true sustainability gems — MagicLinen is a family-run business specializing in high-quality linen textiles. It’s your go-to storefront for chic bedding, curtains, and tablecloths. All of their products are super durable, easy to clean, and free from harmful chemicals. You’ll fall in love with their warm earth tones like cinnamon, matcha, charcoal, and woodrose.
If you’re feeling romantic, check out the highly curated selection of home products from Prosperity Candle.

Prosperity Candle emphasizes quality, sustainability, and fair trade practices. In addition to making your house smell amazing, all of their candles are made from vegan, coconut-soy wax and natural fragrances (no toxic dyes here).

Choose from super soft organic cotton sheets, sateen pillowcases, or an indulgent velvet quilt. Besides bringing a bit of luxury to your bedroom, Parachute is proudly Climate-Neutral certified, meaning the brand tracks its annual emissions and compensates the planet accordingly by purchasing verified carbon credits. Additionally, Parachute practices responsible sourcing for its materials, ethical manufacturing, and meaningful investment in DEI initiatives. The bedding is a little pricey, but you can sleep soundly knowing you spent your dollars wisely.

West Elm is the largest company on this list. With 100 retail stores and a massive global market, the brand doesn’t fit your curated, eco aesthetic at first glance. But West Elm’s influence on the market means its environmental and social decisions have a notable impact. This company was the first home decor brand to join the Fair Trade USA movement, and its products meet a range of vetted sustainability certifications. West Elm has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in small, local artisans, and 95% of its extensive product list is designed in-house. Finally, because West Elm has such a significant presence, it’s a highly accessible brand with products for any budget.

You don’t have to compromise. Whatever your home decor vision, there’s a sustainable option for you.
