All the Familiar (Green) Faces
TargetTarget has long been known for helping the communities its stores are in, and last year, the company announced a new commitment to sustainability, promising to expand their selection of sustainable products and minimize their carbon footprint. Target offers eco-friendly home goods, organic groceries, non-toxic household cleaners, and even all-natural beauty products. I like the Eco Modern Storage Cubes from Way Basics in particular. They’d be great for the kids playroom! If you bring your things home in reusable bags, Target will give you a five-cent discount for each bag you use.
Crate & BarrelCrate & Barrel has a huge selection of eco-friendly products, from a bamboo digital bath scale for the bathroom to a hutch made with sustainable mango wood for your dining space. But in addition to its products, the company itself is making environmental responsibility a priority.
From starting a recycling program for corrugated cardboard and plastic in stores, warehouses and corporate offices to installing sensor aisle lights in their warehouses, Crate & Barrel is taking green steps in the right direction!
West ElmWest Elm say that they “believe small changes lead to bigger ones,” and that they aren't willing to compromise on style or quality. By highlighting sustainable products while also keeping prices affordable, Target it helping to bring eco awareness into the mainstream.
West Elm is great for organic bedding and recycled glass vases and bottles in all shapes and sizes.
When shopping on the website, look for the “West Elm green” label on products that are either sustainable, organic, or made from FSC certified wood or paper!
