Earth Day (April 22) is here, which means it’s the perfect time to reflect on the impact we have on the planet.
But don’t worry – being environmentally conscious doesn’t mean we have to curb our shopping habits completely.
We can still fill our home with beautiful things – and what’s more beautiful than sustainability?
