Eco Chic is an online furniture shop showcasing eco friendly furniture and homewares throughout Australia, founded and created by interior designers Cris Bucknall and Paula Breckman.
We love home furnishings, but feel bad about the impact they can have on the environment. We don't want to sacrifice style, so why should our customers? If you associate buying green furniture with rough hewn tables and hopsack blankets, then think again! Our online furniture shop is a little less Birkenstock and a little more Balenciaga!
Eco & Environmentally Friendly Homewares and Products
At Eco Chic, we pay attention to every material used in our contemporary online furniture store, as well as the full life cycle of each item to ensure that our furniture products are as environmentally friendly as possible.
Our product categories include:
- HOMEWARES + DECOR
- ART + MIRRORS
All of our furniture, homewares and eco products meet at least one of the following criteria:
Renewable resources: A resource that can be replenished at a rate equal to or greater than its rate of depletion. Bamboo or hemp are good examples.
Recycled and recyclable materials: Recycled products contain reused or reconditioned materials. Recyclable products include parts that can be reused in new products.
Non-toxic & non allergenic materials: Furniture made with materials that are not poisonous, harmful, or otherwise destructive to any organism during production or during life-cycle of product.
Made in Australia: By buying furniture and homewares made in Australia, you are benefiting the local community as well as reducing the energy consumed through transportation overseas.
Fair Trade certified: “A trading partnership that contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers." We feature many furnishings that are handmade by artisans, which provides the dual benefit of creating jobs for people and promoting cultural handicraft.
GECA Certified: Many of our green products are made with materials that are certified by the 'Good Environmental Choice' program which provides an environmental mark of recognition for products. GECA is managed by a not-for-profit organisation. The program awards a mark of recognition for products that meet standards of high environmental, quality and social performance.”
