Sustainable Living at West Elm
The iconic furniture brand West Elm has spun off a line of kitchen and home goods, West Elm Market. The concept features 75% American-made goods and a coffee bar called La Colombe. The market has two standalone locations, including the 3,000-square-foot Brooklyn flagship, as well as 24 mini Markets retrofitted inside 56 West Elm stores. Some stores even have cafes. But it’s the West Elm stores that have truly captured the brand’s DNA.
While most retailers are aiming for sustainability, West Elm is leading the way when it comes to sustainability. Their goal is to become carbon neutral by 2025, and they have taken steps to ensure this happens. They have made efforts to work with local manufacturers and artisans as well as support global craft communities. Fair Trade USA-certified products have been sourced from sustainable sources, and they make a commitment to sustainable sourcing and fair treatment of workers. Organic cotton is used in many of their textiles and bedding.
