Sustainable Home Shopping Tips
I personally feel that my home is my sanctuary and therefore I cannot enlighten more with 2019 interiors trend calling for sustainable pieces. Applying the use of renewable and reusable materials like jute, rice paper and clay can bring the most beautiful, unique items into any part of your home. Several scientific studies have recently revealed that bringing natural materials into our homes has psychological and physical benefits from deepening our connection to nature to improving sleep quality and potentially reducing stress levels.
I want to share with you some tips where you can carry away while browsing for your new items for your kitchen, bathroom and living room. And that all with being kind to our planet.

Her beautiful idea of creating something that is kinder for the planet but also for the buyer, is carried through the recycled paper she picks up herself riding the bicycle to the packing that is also environmentally friendly and 100% plastic free.
