This Earth Month, we’re debunking the myth that going green means giving up or going without (or worse yet, settling for uninspired alternatives in the name of saving the planet). To help make our case, we’re shining a light on some of the eco-friendly Etsy items making it easy to incorporate sustainability into your everyday life, without sacrificing style. “Moving toward a more environmentally conscious way of life starts with becoming more aware of the items you purchase,” says Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. “The good news? Many of today’s designers are prioritizing Earth-friendly materials and putting fresh, creative spins on sustainable pieces, and there’s truly something for everyone.” From reusable essentials like eco-chic biodegradable sponges and colorful glass straws to an effortlessly wearable jumpsuit made from all-natural fibers, here are Dayna’s favorite sustainable Etsy items of the moment.
