Sustainable living is not just a trendy term. It’s fast becoming a way of life for many consumers and it’s not surprising. With many of us taking a more considered approach on what we eat and also what we wear, it was a natural progression for home décor to be scrutinised in the media for its eco, sustainable approach. With furniture giants such as Ikea, Dunelm and The Range all promoting movements towards recyclable, natural and eco conscious materials, it’s clear that the industry is making an effort to fulfil the consumer need for a more ethical stance.
That’s why we are taking a look into the most ethical materials available in home décor today, what we love about them and how we use them at Luluh Lane.
Our range of ceramic products is a blend of earthen elements, powders, and water and shaping them into desired forms to bring and aura of well being and tranquillity to your home. Ceramic is one of the most natural materials you can use in your home interior designs. Earthenware is sourced from the earth, and when their use is over, they return to the earth. The material is beautiful, practical, and can take a wide variety of shapes and forms.
Thanks to glass, which is part of our local heritage, we can produce beautiful home wear which looks gorgeous and is sustainable. Glass is made from natural and abundant raw materials (sand, soda ash and limestone) that are melted at very high temperature to form a new material: glass. Our glass product range is an integral part of our sustainable development approach. Used in our vases, ornaments and plant pots; they are stylish, as well as being environmentally friendly.
Seagrasses are marine flowering plants that are found along tropical coastlines around the world. Beautiful, lightweight and sturdy, we use seagrass in our basket range. It’s such a natural, versatile material and a key component to today’s décor’s. With it being far more beneficial to the planet, it is such a popular material for our eco conscious customers.
Cork is a natural, environmentally friendly material. When the cork is harvested the trees aren't cut down, instead their bark is carefully stripped away by hand in a skilled trade that's passed down over generations. Easily recycled and biodegrades completely. An excellent thermal insulator for our coasters, to rest that hot cuppa on during the winter months.
Wood is a natural and renewable material and a great alternative to plastic. Simply because they’re replaceable, fast-growing species like pine trees tend to be a more sustainable material. Our wood pieces make for lovely decor and help keep us grounded and connected with the Earth. We feel less stressed and are reminded to breathe deeply and just enjoy being.
Here at Luluh Lane sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We consciously create or source items produced from one, or more of the above materials. Not only this, we also use recyclable material for our packaging and marketing. Head to www.luluhlane.com and check each product page for full details.
