Your space tells a story about you. When preparing your room or dorm for the upcoming school year, choose sustainable or secondhand furniture and décor to tell a story that honors your commitment to a healthy and thriving planet. Whether you’re stocking up on hangers to organize your wardrobe, deciding on a fridge to store leftovers, or picking out the perfect rug, ethical choices will help transform your room in to a conscious living space. Look for bedding, décor, and accessories that embellish your style through non-toxic, organic, recycled, and upcycled materials. Sharing with your roommate and purchasing gently used items from thrift stores is also a great way to sustain the plane t and your wallet. Your room is more than just a space where you study, sleep, and relax; it’s an opportunity to express your conscious self and lighten your footprint.
