    3 Local Shops to Spruce Up Your Home with Sustainable Digs This Fall

    Bring the fall spirit to life in your home!

    Adding a few fall-inspired decorations around your house/apartment can really make the season feel more present and festive. Here are three stores located in Philly that can help you spruce up your home this season.

    3 Local Stores to Find Fall upgrades

    1. Green Design

    Green Design has been supplying customers with eco-friendly products since 2012. This Chestnut Hill gem offers products such as stainless-steel water bottles, organic baby toys, cellulose and cotton dish towels with water-based ink, and more!

    One simple product for your list this fall is Green Design’s wool felt coasters. They offer a beautiful range of colors including vibrant reds, different shades of green, and an ash brown. Choose from four sets to make your next fall party pop!

    8434 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA  19118 & Princeton

    2. United By Blue

    Geared towards the outdoors adventurer, United By Blue offers apparel, camping gear, and home goods. Not only does UBB encourage customers to get outside, the United By Blue team removes one pound of trash and waste from the world’s waterways for each product sold.

    Don’t feel guilty for buying a few (or more) of their wonderfully fragrant candles this season. If you want to feel like you are waking up in the middle of the woods on a crisp autumn morning, go with the Log Cabin Out-of-Doors candle.

    205 Race Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

    3. Casa Papel

    If you are having trouble putting the finishing touches on a room and can’t seem to find anything you love, then design something yourself! With the help of Casa Papel, you can create beautiful stationery, envelopes, or paper signs to frame for your home. Located in the heart of Northern Liberties, Casal Papel carries an eco-friendly line of paper made from the Lokta plant, which grows wild in the Himalayas and renews itself after the material is harvested.

    Once you pick your desired paper, all you have to do is come up with a jazzy fall saying (Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice, if you will), select the way to print your lettering, and voilà! Finish off your personally made decoration with a wooden picture frame, and you have the perfect autumn accessory.

    804 N 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19123

    Simple color changes, scents, and accessories are quick and easy updates to make to your home when trying to stay seasonal. Although we love these three, try exploring the city to finding your new favorite boutique, too! (And share your favs with us on Facebook.)
