9 sustainable furniture brands that keep an eye on the earth

Whether it’s $ 20 dropped on an Amazon bar stool or $ 2,000 spent on a cloud-like love seat, furniture is an investment. Regardless of the scale, we want these purchases to last – and so does the planet. The longer our household goods are reused and recycled, the less unnecessary waste ends up in our landfills. One small way to add to this environmental impact is by buying sustainable furniture from brands that keep the earth’s future in mind. To make this step even easier, we’ve compiled a list of retailers and brands that are currently making environmentally friendly goods.
