Eco Home Magazine is the latest sister publication of Eluxe. Here’s what to expect!
By Diane Small
Since Eluxe Magazine launched in 2013, it has continued to evolve. We launched the Eluxe Awards in 2016, and our shop, Eluxe Exclusives, in 2017. And now, there’ a new member of the Eluxe family: Eco Home Magazine.
Although we adore sustainable fashion and organic beauty, this project will focus more on the home. Think: sustainable interiors, eco architecture, ethical pet ownership, gardening and more.
And the reason for the launch? Well, since the pandemic, it became evident that more people were more focused on staying home. We’re all working more often from home offices, and we’re taking more ‘staycations’.
So what better time to launch a magazine that’s focused on making your home the best it can be?

We all have different tastes. That’s true whether we’re talking fashion, beauty, or home decor. And that’s why Eco Home Magazine will be featuring loads of different styles of interiors and architectural concepts.
From baroque maximalism, bursting with colour, to subtle minimalism in neutral hues, we will offer something to inspire everyone. The common thread? Sustainability, of course!
Eco Home Magazine will highlight loads of the world’s best eco-friendly interior, furniture and home accessories designers. We’ll ask for their best tips, feature their work, and show you the innovative materials they’re using. For example, one of our favourite sustainable fashion designers, Deborah Lindquist, has launched a home wear range, too. It’s mainly comprised of upcycled fibres. And she’s not the only one! Plenty of conscious designers are doing the same, and our goal is to help you adorn your home in the same ethical way you’d wear your clothes.
We will also be showing you the work of some of the most talented architects on the planet, highlighting their sustainable projects. Whether they’re high rise towers featuring green roofs and balconies, or tiny homes, encouraging us to lower our carbon footprint, we’re sure you’ll find something to inspire you.

Sure, it’s interesting to study the beauty of green architectural projects and to marvel at innovations in furniture design. But how can you make your own home greener without planning a major move, spending a fortune, or destroying the planet by trashing perfectly good furniture in favour of trendier items? That’s the question we expect most of our readers would be asking themselves, and we have the answers!
Eco Home Magazine will provide tons of ideas on how to greenify your home, whether it’s a multi-bedroom manor or a studio apartment.
For example, we’ll be sharing loads of delicious, plant-based recipes that are better for your health, and the health of the planet. We will even tell you how you can grow your own organic food, and we’ll share gardening tips to ensure your outdoors areas are as planet-friendly as your interiors.
Additionally, we will publish information on how to clean your home using natural products, and share facts about why most household furnishings, cleaners, and paints can be bad for your health.
Eco Home Magazine will also offer DIY tips on everything from how to upcycle furniture, to how to make your own toys for your pets. And speaking of pets, we’ll be covering that area, as well. After all, our furry friends have a carbon footprint, too!
So, if you want to know where to buy the best organic pet foods, pet beds and toys, or even want to learn how to take care of your pets’ health naturally, this is the site for you.

Helping those in need
Finally, Eco Home Magazine will have an associated online shop – Eluxe Exclusives. There, we will be offering home wear that helps women in need. Specifically, we are working in conjunction with the Peruvian NGO AMA to give female artisans in the Peruvian Andes 50% of all the profits made from each sale. The shop will feature woven carpets coloured with vegetable, seed and flower dyes; baby alpaca throws, shawls and ponchos; handwoven pillow cases, and much more.
