Welcome and thanks for being here. Recycled Interiors & The Sustainable Home Hub is your go-to resource for being sustainable, healthy and happy at home. We are on a mission to help you create a home YOU love, not one dictated by other people and invite you to join our #realhomesmovement, and encourage you to reject fast fashion in interiors.
When you see the beauty in the rough, stories underneath the knocks and bangs, layers of life etched into the patina of a thing, you realise the value in everything. A throw away world that values only the new, the trendy, the things of mass consumption, sold to us by those who set those very trends, loses so many things. A world where power and money making drive consumption forgets to notice and value what really matters, and leaves damage in its wake. Value the old, the things that have stood the test of time, the ones which feel loved under your fingers, tell stories of people past. But most importantly always value people and planet first.
No matter how big or small, whether it has cracks and knocks, needs some work or is perfect the way it is – your home is YOURS. Whether you rent, buy, or live at home, you have the right to create a space that makes you feel happy and secure. NEVER let anyone tell you that you are “outdated” or that you are just not “on trend”. At Recycled Interiors we don’t believe in trends.
We do believe in YOUR style being perfect and in creating a beautiful home that feels just like you. We want to help you create a home that is better for you and the planet through our blog posts, tips and inspiration, sharing the wonderful businesses on the Sustainable Home Hub who can help you tread more lightly on the planet, and our #realhomesmovement
If you believe in a happy healthy life, that cares for you, your family and the planet; if you love decorating and design, DIY, op shopping, pottering in the garden and a good cup of tea, you have come to the right place!
Caring for your home, your family and yourself, can be hard work. Making changes at home, trying to be more sustainable and take steps to create a home that is healthy, can feel impossible sometimes. It is easy to get overwhelmed. But each small step you take, each small step we all take, makes a big, gorgeous, combined impact on the health of our planet, you, your family and your home. It is all connected.
If you want to explore and get lots of helpful information, inspiration and ideas, here are a few places to start.
Sign up to grab your new customer discount voucher and get shopping in our online store for plastic bag alternatives, eco cleaning, recycled homewares and fairtrade items in our specially curated online store. My aim is to offer alternatives for when you need something for your home, rather than shopping for items that may be damaging to you and our planet.
