With that said, here are two things that I know to be true:
1. The biggest environmental harm is done by 100 big corporations/industries - not the global population (source).(go deeper).
2. It is important for me to make decisions based on my values. Especially with decorating my home - I am living with these items every day. When possible, I want my home to be a reflection of me, filled with meaning. These are items that I share space with - I want to feel good about what they are made out of and where they came from.
One thing that I love about home decor is that, as you’ll see, so much of it can be elements that you gather/make yourself, or source from vintage shops. Capitalism is still a thing, and most of us can’t exist outside of that system. However, there are things we can do to support a more circular economy when decorating our home.
