Going green: Our pledge to become a more environmentally aware company
Preserving and caring for our natural environment is a subject that sits very close to our hearts. We agree whole-heartedly with the science that says climate change is the most pressing matter of our time. So, to play our part in reducing the impact on our delicate planet, we’ve made some changes to our store to make it as easy as possible for you to shop as eco-consciously as we can.
No longer do you need to rifle through different categories or read the small print to find the green purchase that you’re looking for. We’ve moved every product that boasts environmentally friendly credentials into one category, so you can easily find chairs made from sustainably sourced wood, tableware made from recycled glass, and art prints and wallpaper printed on environmentally friendly paper. We’re incredibly proud to stock such an array of green products from the likes of Nkuku, 366 Concept, Orikomi lighting, Mind The Gap, as well as many, many more.
Even if you weren’t specifically looking for an environmentally friendly piece, you might just find an alternative here that’ll suit your needs! Before you start writing your eco shopping list, let us share some of our favourite pieces with you, and why they’ve made the cut.
A furniture staple for us is the classic 366 armchair from the Polish brand 366 Concept. As well as the chair’s sleek, mid-century look, and varying wood finish and upholstering options, it’s also made entirely with water-safe pigments, varnishes and glues. Plus, for every chair bought, 366 Concept plants a new tree!
It’s no secret that we’re a bit nuts for lighting, too. A particular go-to for us is the Orikomi origami-style pendent light. Not only is it a highly recyclable product, it’s also designed specifically to only be used with energy saving lightbulbs – so you’ll have no excuse for using energy-guzzling, tungsten bulbs any longer!
We love our wallpaper, too. The brighter and more OTT the better! All of our MINDTHEGAP wallpaper collection is printed on 100% FSC approved paper, produced from wood obtained from sustainably grown forests.
So, join us in becoming as eco-friendly as possible – if everyone makes just one small change in their life, it’s going to add up to a big team effort for the benefit of our precious natural environment.
