11 Nov Top 5 Conscious Winter Home Essentials
Tis’ the season for cozy comfort! Here are some of our favorite eco-conscious winter home essentials perfect for cold-weather hibernation.
1. Time for Tea
Brighten up your afternoon with the Terraces Stacking Tea Set by Pao Tea ($58), including everything necessary for a quiet moment. There’s nothing like wrapping your hands around a hot drink on a chilly day. Herbal tea is a great way to stay hydrated and healthy all winter long. This fair-trade company offers a wonderful variety of loose-leaf, small-batch teas directly sourced from community farms in China’s Fujian province. Want to have your tea and brew it, too? Try their Artisanal Tea Kit ($78), featuring a traditional set and artisanal tea of your choice. Bonus: the beautifully handwoven bamboo basket can also be repurposed as chic home decor.
2. A Lively Touch of Spring
A little extra color and greenery are the perfect way to keep the spirit of spring alive through the colder months. Give your favorite plant a lively base in this Wheel Thrown Hand Painted Porcelain Vase ($95) from Jason Fox Ceramics, featuring fall-inspired shades of fiery yellow, orange, and red. If a Fiddle Leaf Fig or Ficus Tree is more your style, then larger plants will feel right at home in the cool-hued Wheel Thrown Hand Painted Porcelain Bowl ($205). Each piece is handcrafted with care from earth elements that remind us to live each day with purposeful intention.
3. Stylish Protection
Protect your furniture from heat and moisture while celebrating luxury eco-style. These beautifully handcrafted Whitewashed Rosewood Coasters ($14.99) from Hip-O Modern Living bring a taste of the outdoors inside. The subtle design perfectly complements any living room, dining room, or patio set. What’s more, each piece is made from sustainably-sourced and ultra-durable rosewood destined for the landfill. A truly versatile, functional set that fits seamlessly into any conscious aesthetic!
4. Fun, Functional Play
If you’re looking for the perfect kid’s gift or feel-good toy to keep seasonal boredom at bay, then meet Pete, Kitty, and Duke. These three cute and colorful characters hail from The Global Trunk’s new Bag Doll Collection ($28 each). Using repurposed fabric remnants, local weavers showcase skilled craftsmanship and ingenuity in a special companion designed to inspire creativity. What’s more, a hidden zipper transforms this multi-functional toy into a go-anywhere children’s shoulder bag for easy transport on every adventure.
5. Sustainable Skin Rescue
Sud Source makes caring for both yourself and the earth easier than ever with an organic body and hair care collection packaged in reusable, refillable bottles. Keep a jar of Deep Moisture Cream ($42) next to the kitchen and bathroom sinks to protect dry winter skin. Additionally, stock up on the 2oz travel size ($16) to moisturize after using their hand and surface sanitizer ($12) – a holiday traveler’s best friend!
