Pillows, Part 2! Eco-Friendly and Fair Trade Options

Last week I did a post on pillows and got a suggestion, from Decorative Pillows, to showcase some eco-friendly and fair trade pillow options. They asked and shall receive.
For those of you not familiar with the term "fair trade" here is what it means- "Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability." (Thank you for that explanation Wikipedia) And I'm pretty sure most of us out there know what eco-friendly means so I will just get on with showing the pillows! Enjoy! : )


These first 2 pillows are by Modernality via Etsy. The pillows are made of felt that is made from recycled plastic bottles! 




These next pillows come from a company called Gianna. Gianna offers lots of eco-friendly AND fair trade items but since we are talking pillows; here are some options from Gianna.


Organic Cotton Bubbles Pillow


 Organic Cotton Snowflake Neckroll Pillow


The next few pillows come from Humble Creations. They use organic cotton and non-toxic water based inks on their items.



Lattice Pillow (available in other colors too)
And last but not least, Ten Thousand Villages. We actually have a Ten Thousand Villages (a fair trade retailer) here in Houston. They sell items by artisans from all over the world.


Handmade Tree of Life Pillow




Handmade Hands Around the World Pillow




Handmade Rags to Riches Pillow




There are LOTS of eco-friendly and fair trade houseware options out there; just search the internet! A lot of the companies listed above sell other items too, not just pillows. Check 'em out!
