A Recycled-Glass Vase
IKEA melted down leftover glass from other products into a fresh collection of vases, including this 10-inch beauty. It has an extra-tall neck (ideal for long-stemmed blooms) and a cool dimpled texture.
Pillows From Remnants
The knitwear company Verloop was founded on a simple idea: Instead of sending excess yarn to landfills, why not turn it into home textiles? The brand’s newest pillow covers are supersoft, machine-washable and available in an array of vibrant patterns. Good luck choosing just one!
Shop the Styles
Since 1997, TimberTech has been repurposing landfill-bound trash — like PVC pipes and old vinyl siding — into its composite decking. The Landmark Collection is the company’s most eco-friendly yet. It’s made from 60% recycled materials, and it now comes in a fourth color, Boardwalk, a beachy, weathered light gray.
A Powerful Low-Water Showerhead
A standard showerhead uses about 2.5 gallons of water per minute. This sleek model from Moen cuts that number in half, but it’s engineered to still bring the pressure with four spray modes.
Pretty Organic Bedding
Finding organic cotton sheets in bright colors and patterns has always been tough, but not anymore. Lewis, a company that makes organic cotton baby products, recently released full- and queen-size bedding in playful designs (like these blowfish) for the kid in all of us.
A Scent Straight From the Trees
The Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, inspired CandaScent Labs’ new Mojo candles: Inhaling scents from the woods has been shown to boost the immune system. These are made with organic essential oils.
Sunbrella is famous for the durable fabric on its outdoor furniture, umbrellas and more, and now you can buy the material right on the company’s site. We love the Heritage line used on this chair. It’s made with recycled fibers and has a vintage look and feel.
A Longer-Lasting Bulb
The latest introduction from Philips will change the lightbulb aisle for good: It burns 3.5 times longer than a standard LED and lowers energy usage by at least 50%.
An Energy-Efficient Stove Top
Induction ranges cook faster and use less energy than gas or electric, and sales have soared 55% in the past year, according to one major retailer. But these appliances haven’t historically been known for their looks. Big Chill’s fun stove has a retro vibe and comes in more than 200 colors.
A whopping 85% of discarded textiles in the United States end up in landfills or incinerators. Atelier Saucier is doing its part to fix this by making napkins out of fabric rescued from L.A.’s fashion district. The best part: No two sets are alike.
Counters for the Conscientious
Cosentino produces its Silestone Ethereal engineered stone counters with 99% recycled water, 100% renewable electric energy and at least 20% recycled materials. Veining gives the effect of real marble.
A Clean Cleaner
The new company Luum can help you green up your cleaning routine with little tablets made from vinegar, citrus and other natural ingredients. Just drop one into the brand’s glass spray bottle, then add the accompanying essential oil and water. The solution works on different surfaces, and it smells so good, you may actually enjoy your chores!
It looks and feels as cozy as wool, but the fabric on this Annie Selke bench is made from PET, or polyethylene terephthalate, the world’s No. 1 recycled plastic.
The paint company Backdrop, beloved for its on-trend colors, is getting into wallpaper. The recently launched line is Greenguard Gold certified, meaning it passes rigorous indoor air-quality requirements. And it looks pretty great, too.
These compostable cleaning towels from Nimbus, made from eucalyptus pulp, come as cute nickel-size tablets that expand in water. They can be reused up to five times.
Cold Picnic’s stylish rugs are designed in Brooklyn, then handmade in a GoodWeave-certified factory in India, where the manufacturing process is powered entirely by solar energy. You can breathe easy if you buy one: They have no chemical coatings and no harmful dyes, either.
The small South African–based decor company Mo’s Crib, known for its sustainable handmade items, just launched a line of baskets at Target. They’re woven from natural grasses.
Tiles From Sludge
To make these sleek new tiles, Kohler smartly converts excess clay and glaze in its wastewater stream into a usable base material. Try them on a bathroom wall!
Plastic Bottle Chic
More proof that recycling is a great thing: These stylish pieces are all made from plastic bottles!
