With Earth Hour just passed for another year, the one night of the year where we are reminded of the damage we are doing to the Earth, it reminds us of how easy it is to take positive action to minimise this destruction. To do our little bit, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite eco-friendly home decoration products. Here’s a guide to some guilt-free shopping to remember Earth Hour—and get ready for Earth Day.
