As much as we love to travel, something about summer makes us want to stay home and create our own little outdoor oasis. Is there really anything better than taking long afternoon naps in a hammock or losing yourself to a book while lounging in the sun? (Yes to more Vitamin D, pls.) ☀️

Whether you have a small city balcony or an expansive backyard, you too can freshen up your outdoor area this summer and spend more time connecting with Mother Nature herself.

These sustainable outdoor furniture brands use reclaimed, recycled, or responsibly sourced materials for their outdoor furniture and patio collections. Host the outdoor dinner party of your dreams or simply add a new lounge chair to your garden. Whatever you choose, we hope you get the rest and sun you need this summer!

Spending more time refreshing your home this summer? Check out these eco-friendly and sustainable furniture companies.

For weather-ready outdoor furniture, we love Neighbor—a sustainable outdoor furniture brand boasting modern designs and modular pieces.

Reforestation and sustainable land management practices are at the core of this company’s mission.

A favorite for finding small, unique businesses creating custom and personalized goods, Etsy delivers when it comes to just about every need, including outdoor furniture! It’s easy to find reclaimed wood or upcycled pieces that are handmade, eco-friendly, and one-of-a-kind. The online marketplace became the first e-commerce company to offset carbon emissions from shipping in 2019, and they are committed to reaching net zero emissions by 2030. Their data centers that host, the Etsy app, and their global offices are all powered by 100% renewable energy, and they generated more than $4 billion for small businesses in 2021 alone. Love that!
