Wayfair's always been one of our go-tos for everything from major home upgrades to smaller household refreshes. Plus, the massive retailer has one of the widest selections when it comes to serving a wide variety of tastes. But here's one that will suit everybody: the ability to shop sustainable furniture at Wayfair.
We noticed while shopping recently that you can now browse according to your favorite environmental standards with Wayfair's Shop Sustainably filter. And this feels like a major step in the right direction in a time when we seek transparency about the products we buy and make purchasing decisions with our values in mind. Now, it's never been easier to discover products that look good and are better for the planet at the same time.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce the impacts of our products and supply chain, we’re offering a new way for everyone to find and shop for more sustainable home products," explains Maggie Finnegan, Wayfair's Corporate Sustainability Manager. "With this feature, every Wayfair shopper can now access up to 14 sustainability-specific features that meet one or more of over 60 globally recognized sustainability certification and standards obtained by our suppliers."
To find the filter, when you're shopping a category, say sofas, you'll select the more filter options and scroll down to the Shop Sustainably tab to shop your own ethics, whether you prefer shopping ethically sourced, recycled, globally conscious, made clean, and various other filters. From there, be sure to check the product description, which will typically go into further detail about how it was made.
Shop our top sustainable and eco-friendly conscious picks from across Wayfair, then try the filter out for yourself. Note, the prices were accurate at the time of publishing, but are subject to change.
