Sustainability worms its way into your life. What started as swapping out a disposable coffee cup for a KeepCup became paying closer attention to recycling and wondering about the contents of my coffee cup and later, my wardrobe.
Once you dip your toe into the pool of living a little lighter, leaving less impact on your little bubble and the wider environment – it becomes enticing to dive in.
But balancing the desire to do good with the overwhelming sense of dread when you have all of the information about the impact of consumerism on people and the planet can be stressful. And that’s why we aim to take the pressure off.
Britt’s List launched in 2017 with the mission to connect shoppers with brands that are making genuine efforts in ethical production and sustainability, first in the fashion sector. But now, we, along with our readers, are ready to go further. With the next logical step to be looking at the valued items in our home with similar supply chains to fashion – homewares and specifically textile-based homewares.
We’re considering the impact of our bedding, towels and even carpet. We’re investigating the origins of the cushions and throw rug in the lounge room and the furniture we spend so much time with.
That’s why Britt’s List, along with our homewares launch partner Bremworth, is now profiling and promoting the brands making homewares in a way that aligns with our values.
Along our search, we’ve already found some incredible local brands making stunning and sustainable products – from the too-nice-to-wet organic cotton towels by Baina, to natural fibre carpets by Bremworth, locally made throws and beautiful linen bedding.
Our initial research has informed a range of pieces that are live on the site now. But, we’ve only just scratched the surface, and we bet you know some absolute gems that belong on the site. If that’s the case, please reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you.
