Eco-Friendly Home Decor: Sustainable Solutions for Stylish Living

Eco-Friendly Home Decor: Sustainable Solutions for Stylish Living

Welcome to Macra-Made With Love, I’m Sarah, it‘s lovely to meet you.

I aim to provide useful home decor and accessories, which you can use in your homes, safe in the knowledge that you are buying from a sustainable, small business.

I believe that it is very important to be conscious about our purchases, and where possible, shop small, and buy high quality, low waste products, to support ethical consumption.

Zero Waste

I love the saying, that we don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly, we need a lot of people doing zero waste as best as they can.

Shopping small and mindfully is a great place to start when it comes to your journey to zero waste.

The kitchen is a great place to start with some sustainable swaps. For example standard disposable kitchen paper towel can easily be replaced with zero waste “un paper towels”.

I bought this gorgeous set featuring a eucalyptus print from a fellow small business, and it works perfectly on one of my kitchen roll holders.

Kitchen roll (or un paper towel) holders are handmade using recycled cotton (in a choice of colours) and the hanging ring is repurposed too, making them unique and eco-friendly.

As a 37 year old mum of 3 children, I am very aware that the choices we make today, are shaping the world that we are leaving for our children, and this definitely makes me want to be even more mindful when I am making purchases, to be sure that they are sustainability made, and also that they are of a high quality, and will be long lasting home decor choices.

Everything I make uses recycled materials. All the yarn I buy is made with recycled fibres, and as previously mentioned, the wooden hanging rings are repurposed as well.

Every order from Macra-Made With Love is carefully wrapped in recycled paper and will always arrive in reused packaging, which is clearly marked as such.

The tape I use is also recyclable, so even though your packaging has been reused, you should be able to remove and recycle the tape so as not to damage the packaging, so that the envelopes and boxes can be reused again and again many more times.

I love this simple way of reducing my environmental impact. 

There are so many benefits to supporting small businesses, and I can 100% guarantee you that each and every order means the absolute world to us. 

By shopping small you can also be content in the knowledge that you are contributing to a greener planet.

You can have full peace of mind knowing that your purchase is sustainably made and eco-friendly when buying from Macra-Made With Love. 

Macra-Made With Love products are ideal choices for individuals on a journey to zero waste living, as shopping small and sustainable aligns with zero waste goals and contributes to a more environmentally conscious lifestyle.

Macra-Made With Love’s products will always be 100% handmade, using recycled materials and sent in reused packaging, please explore our website for more eco-friendly home decor options and to support small independent makers.
