The best place to start making the world a better place is right at home.
At Crate and Barrel, we believe that the best place we can all begin to conserve and protect our natural resources is at home. At our company “home” in Northbrook, Illinois, we have prioritized developing new products and manufacturing processes to expand the responsible choices we offer our customers. While our collection has featured renewable woods and sustainable materials for a number of years, we are continuing to explore and introduce important initiatives that will help make our homes more thoughtful environments.
For us, green is not a trend. It's an ongoing mission. Our commitment will continue as we develop new ways to improve everything we touch, from the products we design to the way we deliver them to your home.
Simple Steps to Keep your Home Environmentally Friendly
Recycle all paper, glass and aluminum products your family uses and properly dispose of any electronic waste, such as old phones or televisions, which should not be thrown out with the regular trash.
Conserve water wherever possible—take shorter showers, turn off the sink while brushing your teeth, and upgrade to water-saving appliances.
For light fixtures, change any incandescent light bulbs to CFLs or LEDs to use less energy. Also remember to turn off lights every time you leave a room.
Reduce wasted food in the kitchen by freezing fresh meats or veggies you won’t be able to eat quickly.
