Back-to-school is in the air, which means it’s the perfect time to get a fresh start. Plenty of schools are taking an environmentally conscious turn by changing things up too, like helping playgrounds go green thanks to planting more leafy trees.
You can spread your own plant love around by joining this movement at home and opting for forest-friendly goods as you refresh your little scholar’s personal space. Check out our favourite picks of FSC-certified furniture and products to help take the guesswork out of sustainable home shopping for the student in your life.
OUR FAVOURITES FOR A KIDS’ BEDROOM SPRUCE-UP
There’s not a sharp corner in sight on the Canyon Natural Wood Kids Desk with Drawer by Leanne Ford so your tot can get handed the inevitable bumps of life without you having to worry. Made with FSC-certified solid white oak that’s engineered to be low on emissions, this piece brings a lovely lightness to any room. Bonus: It has plenty of drawer space for tucking away treasures.
Young creatives can let their imaginations run wild on sheets of Domtar FSC Certified Earth Choice Office Paper, and your mind can take a break since it’s made with wood fibers sources from sustainably managed North American forests. Just set up a stack on your child’s desk to see just how far out that brain sees.
We all have our tough moments, and that’s okay. When it happens to your own next gen, we know you want to do everything in your power to ease their pain. Kleenex Soothing Lotion Facial Tissues are made with extra-soft coconut oil and aloe to gently wipe away any tears that roll around, adding a little moisture to skin along the way, too. And since they’re a strongly built FSC-certified product, one sheet is all you’ll need.
For the extra small children finally getting their first cushy support, check out Avocado’s Organic Toddler Pillow crafted with the softest cotton exterior. The breathable organic latex and certified kapok fiber filling keep air flowing for a no-sweat night. You can rest easy too, since this biodegradable piece is entirely non-toxic, hypoallergenic and pesticide-free.
Whether it’s creating a fun and funky footstool so your kid can kick back while reading or getting some extra seats for a raucous sleep-over, Molo softseating makes foldable goodies that you can easily pack away when not in use. Neutral tones can match any décor, or their electric blue provides a colour kick for those souls that prefer shining bright.
