Eco-Friendly: Going Green at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Country style and eco-friendly at the same time! Taking care of the environment in a responsible way is what Sturbridge Yankee Workshop stands by with our array of eco-friendly and ‘green’ items. Combining natural fibers and materials and natural processes of creating the items results in an environmentally responsible collection we are proud to offer to you.

Look for the eco-friendly green leaf symbol on our ‘green’ item pages. Investing in earth-friendly items for your country home feels good – for both you and the planet!

Since the definition of eco-friendly can be vague, we thought we’d let you know exactly what this symbol means on an SYW product.
