Working from home definitely has its perks. Aside from the lack of soul-destroying cubicles and toxic office politics, it’s also environmentally healthy because it means no commute, no prepackaged snacks from a vending machine or a convenience store, and no giant conference room that sucks up energy and sits unused half the time.
Whether you’re a telecommuter, a freelancer, or a work-at-home entrepreneur, we’ve assembled a list of five products that will help you green your home office. Stylishly, of course.
- Modella Bamboo Desk No office is complete without a desk and this one is made of sturdy, sustainable bamboo. Its rich, warm finish comes from a non-toxic kiln process. With its ample shelves and surface area for computers, printers, and other essentials, we can’t help but give it a seal of approval.
- KnÃº Bookcase
These bookcases are made from FSC-certified wood when possible and come in six different finishes. We love the clean, simple lines, and the extra deep shelves.
- MOBOS Modular Storage Bins As Jennae at Green Your Décor points out, these cute, colorful storage units are available in a rainbow of colors and shapes. Plus, they’re made of recycled metal with non-toxic coatings.
- Bamboo Desk Memo Station With Ballpoint Pen This bamboo memo station features a groove for the included pen. And for each desk memo station purchased, the company will make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation, which encourages people to plant trees and protect the rainforests.
- Pulp Bulletin Board We have a serious crush on this clever little bulletin board. It’s made of recycled magazine pages, so you can attach reminders by sticking them between the tightly packed pages or using thumb tacks. The varied colors of the pages create a cool accent, too.
