Demand for ethical products is huge and growing. Consumers are increasingly conscious of a product’s environmental and social impact. What is a product made from? Are workers treated fairly? Does the manufacturing process harm the planet? Sustainable products from environmentally and socially responsible companies are proving incredibly popular.
Products made with sustainable materials are kind to the planet and look amazing too. We’re talking wood and paper from properly managed forests. Fabrics made with organic fibres and dyes. Recycled glassware. And absolutely no plastic.
One sustainable material we’re seeing more and more of is bamboo. You can buy bamboo furniture, bamboo kitchen utensils and even a bamboo keyboard for your computer. It’s environmentally friendly and utterly beautiful.
Home items that help people be kinder to the environment are also experiencing a surge in popularity. Reusable water bottles and coffee cups. Fabric shopping bags. Paper and metal straws. Items to replace a plastic product are a sure-fire hit.
We’re also falling in love with products that are built to last. We know that our throwaway culture is damaging the planet. New products have to be manufactured and the old stuff ends up in a landfill. So we’re finding it hard to resist high-quality products that promise to last for many years to come.
Ethically Made Products
Being ethical isn’t just about the environment. It’s also about how companies treat the people they work with. Consumers love items made by artisans around the world, as long as they’re paid a fair wage for their work. Handmade items in limited edition designs – think fabrics, baskets or ceramics – are in huge demand.
We’re embracing ethical design. It’s great for the planet and its people. And those companies who stay ahead of the ethical curve.
