If your attempts at going green have been a little shaky after forgetting to pack a bag for a possible spontaneous trip to the grocery store or dreading the task of sorting your recycling which by the way, can be more difficult than rocket science. Have no fear…thanks to go-to home retailer, Crate and Barrel it has become a lot easier to live green. After some investigating on their site (keyword search: eco-friendly), the brands eco-secret was out. They may not have an easy-to-find green collection but once you’ve searched you’ll discover over 300 hundred items that have gone green, not tacky and not overpriced.

So what makes these items eco-friendly you ask? All 300+ are made from recycled materials, bamboo materials, organic cotton and sustainable woods. The Crate and Barrel website even provides more information on what makes the items environmentally friendly under their “Eco-Friendly Information” section. So now you can save the environment and still keep your apartment looking chic, granola chic that is!
