Whether it's $20 bucks dropped on a bar stool from Amazon or $2,000 spent on a cloud-like loveseat, furniture is an investment. Regardless of the scale, we want these purchases to last — and, hey, so does the planet. The longer our home goods get reused and recycled, the less unnecessary waste ends up in our landfills. One small way to further this environmental cause is by opting to shop for sustainable furniture from brands that are keeping the future of the earth in mind.
