Reduce, reuse, recycle is the mantra of the eco-conscious – but when it comes to furnishing your home, what if you just want brand new stuff?
The good news is you can now buy new without making as much of an impact on the environment. The hip lifestyle brand Urban Collective (opens in new tab) has just launched a collection of home furnishings, including cotton-bamboo blend bedlinen and blankets, throws and cushions, all made from recycled wool.
Using recycled wool consumes much less water and energy during production, while the quality finish and trendy muted colours of the products is impressive.
Enjoy the cosiness, while relishing the green credentials. Prices start at £50.99 for a cushion.
