Stay sustainable. Go green!
November 1 was World Vegan Day, and while most of us are not vegans (and many not even vegetarians) none of us want to hurt animals and the environment. So let’s take the pledge to go beyond an animal-friendly diet for a holistically sustainable life! A deeper look into your living space and living habits reveals the aspects of your life that cause serious harm to animals and their habitats, in one way or the other. When it comes to building your own habitat, therefore, commit to creating a more nature-friendly home!
- Say goodbye to leather!
We’re not asking you to throw away all your existing leather and suede furniture (goodness, what a waste!) but what you can do is make it the last animal skin you buy! If you’ve already bought a new leather couch, for instance, make full use of it and extend its life with care, the right cleaning materials, and even patchwork once the material eventually starts to fray. But if you are looking to buy new furniture or change the upholstery on an existing piece, go for more environment-friendly fabrics like cotton or linen. They are not only ethical but also look ultra-chic – and they’re more comfortable in the summers!
