I believe that we all have the ability to improve the planet via the choices we make everyday. The impact that good interior design can have on a person's health and sense of well-being can be astounding, and I am passionate about helping people create spaces that make them feel calm and balanced. However, this can also be a very consumerist industry which is why I feel a strong responsibility to do everything I can to educate and offset the potential for negative environmental impacts. Since Earth Day is this Thursday, I will be sharing environmentally conscious content all week that will inspire you to shop sustainably and make better choices in your home and, hopefully, in your lives!
Today I'm featuring some local Columbus businesses and content creators who are doing the MOST to help the planet. Check them out below!

SISTAIN is an online marketplace and expansive educational resource that was created to help guide those interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle through conscious consumerism. They believe that change can be created through everyday decisions to support conscious brands that are operating with sustainable or circular methods of design, production, and manufacturing processes. In an era of misinformation and misunderstanding, SISTAIN seeks to bring the right, true, and helpful information to light. Be sure to check out their library of educational articles on their website, and don't miss their Earth Day promotion to receive 20% off with discount code EARTHDAY20.
