Choose Sustainably Sourced Decor

If you’re purchasing something new, try to learn the story of the products you’re buying. Consider asking questions like: Who made this decor? What materials were used to make it? Were the materials sustainably sourced?

Also, look for certifications like FSC certified, which stands for Forest Stewardship Council, and is a certification that ensures that the product you are buying is made from responsible sources and have been verified to meet FSC’s strict environmental and social standards. Look for similar certifications (e.g. Fair Trade) and other information. Always ask questions if you’re not sure. In other words, learn more to be sure that the decor you’re buying didn’t strip a forest naked and that people were treated fairly in the production process.
