No, you're not the only one who is buying everything non-toxic, locally sourced, and vegan nowadays.

As more reports share how different products and materials wreak havoc on the environment (and our health!), we all want to minimize our carbon footprint. We buy clean beauty and ethically-made clothes, so why should our home decor be any different? Fortunately, there are plenty of awesome design brands that are equally stylish and sustainable.

Below, 13 eco-friendly home brands you should check out. Go ahead, shop your way to a brighter, greener future.

1. Dims.

Newly launched homewares brand Dims. brings a slice of sustainability to simplistic Nordic, Shaker, and Japanese design. This bar cart, for example, is made with wood sourced from sustainably managed forests and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (a.k.a. FSC). We'll cheers to that!

2. Armadillo & Co.

Pay it forward with Armadillo & Co. Not only does this company make their beautiful rugs with natural and sustainable fibers in India, they also employ nearly 1,500 artisans in India.

3. Threaded

Threaded prioritizes sustainability by partnering with suppliers that use solar powered roofs, water recycling, and harm-free dyes. Your good night's sleep just got a lot better.

4. Maiden Home

ICYMI: Mass-produced furniture leaves a lot of waste and scraps, which doesn't do the environment any favors. In addition to using non-toxic materials, Maiden Home's custom, direct-to-consumer business model creates zero excess inventory that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

5. Chairish

Speaking of cutting down waste, buying secondhand or vintage pieces is about as sustainable as it gets. If you think about it, no additional resources are being used on a piece that was made decades ago. From artwork, to sofas, to this Wes Anderson-esque lamp, Chairish makes finding beautiful, old-school wares a breeze.

6. Branch Basics

After learning about the harsh effects chemicals in traditional cleaning supplies can have on your body, co-founders Kelly Love, Allison Evans, and Marilee Nelson sought out to create a healthier alternative. Each kit features a multi-purpose concentrate, which is made with safe ingredients like baking soda, chamomile, and soapberry.

7. Coyuchi

"Organic" doesn't even begin to cover it. Textile brand Coyuchi participates in a number of environmentally and socially conscious initiatives, like Fair Trade USA, Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and International Labour Organization (ILO).

8. Minna

This company teams up with artisans in Mexico, Guatemala, Uruguay, and Bolivia to make sustainably minded products that won't sacrifice your home's style. The result? Gorgeous, ethically made pillows, throw blankets, and dinnerware.

In addition to creating beautiful, environmentally-friendly goods, Raven & Lily offers over 1,500 at-risk women in nine countries fair trade wages, a stable job, sustainable income, healthcare, education, and a chance to break the poverty cycle. For every Raven & Lily purchase—including these dramatic serving spoons—a portion of the proceeds go to microloans for women in need.

10. Life + Cycle

Light up the night with Life + Cycle. Each candle is made of pure essential oils, American-grown soy wax, and a cotton wick. No paraffin, dyes, or synthetic fragrances required!
