Essential guide to living sustainably: eco friendly homewares brands

If this year has taught us anything, it’s the impact our living space can have on your mindset. An indoor plant, a well-positioned lamp or the scent of sandalwood floating through your living room can make all the difference to your mental wellbeing.

Here’s our shortlist of eco friendly homewares brands that help you create a feel-good living space, while being good to the planet. 

Zephyr Candle Co

Based in: Freshwater, NSW

Making: Refillable candles

A good glass candle is the best shortcut to mood setting. With a minimalist design and scents like Fresh Linen, French Pear and Australian Bush, Zephyr’s are a no-brainer.

Made with natural coconut & soy wax, all candles are 100% vegan, biodegradable and free from petroleum products. They are hand poured in small batches, with candle refills available for those living near Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Pampa

Add texture and style to your living room with Pampa’s woven works of art. Based out of Byron Bay, the brand works closely with artisans from remote areas of Argentina to create long-lasting homewares and textiles with sustainable natural materials and dyes.

Don’t worry about the trip over, all shipments from Argentina use carbon offsets and any orders arrive in 100% plastic-free compostable or reusable packaging too.

Mulberry Threads

Based in: Western Australia

Making: Bedding & pillow covers for kids to adults

If you’re not sleeping on bamboo yet, do yourself a favour. Breathable, hypoallergenic and super soft, the fabric feels luxe and is one of the more sustainable materials used for bedding.

Mulberry Threads has a good range, all made from ethically sourced and organically grown bamboo in a closed-loop process, without any harmful chemicals. You can sleep well knowing your bedding is panda-friendly too, they don’t eat this particular stuff. 

West Elm

Making: Just about everything – Lighting, rugs, cushions, decor & more

Few do stylish design like West Elm. Their range is extensive and full of eco-friendly homewares options. From chemical-free organic bedding and textiles to sustainably sourced and FSC®-certified timber furniture and other homewares made from recycled and upcycled materials. A great option when you want to shop everything in one place.

Seljak 

Based in: Queensland

Making: Blankets

Run by two sisters, Seljak creates closed-loop recycled wool blankets made from factory floor offcuts, with one donated to the ASRC for every ten sold.

They also offer a service to collect your old Seljak blankets free of charge. It’ll be picked up by a carbon neutral courier service, shredded and spun into new yarn to make another blanket. Throw any of their modern designs across your bed or lounge for instantly cosy vibes.

Two Warm Hands

Two Warm Hands creates small-batch ceramics made for a lifetime of thoughtful use. The brand sources Australian clay and local materials, in a process where everything possible is reused, recycled or composted.

The eco friendly homewares ethos continues until your order arrives with packaging made from locally-produced, biodegradable and recycled material. Modern and imperfect, their bowls and vases are a favourite finishing touch for styling any room. 

Dazed But Amazed 

Based in: Newcastle, NSW

Making: Bedding & pillow covers for kids to adults

For the linen lovers: this dyed-to-order brand creates bedding in a beautiful range of hues. Highly breathable, pure linen is the more sustainable and durable alternative to cotton sheets that will last you decades rather than years.

The linen comes vintage washed for that lived-in look and extra softness. We recommend getting your hands on a tonal set.
