6 Eco-Friendly Shower Curtains For An Easy Bathroom Upgrade

Where Sustainable Meets Squeaky Clean 🛁 

For those of us wanting to “zhuzh up” our personal spaces, an easy place to give an upgrade is the bathroom. After all, aren’t we always on a mission to create a dream home that we truly relish spending time in? With just a new soap dish, bath mat, or say, shower curtain, we can liven up this area of our home with minimal effort.

We’ve found six eco-friendly brands offering shower curtains that are crafted with simple and playful designs, handwoven fabrics, and high-quality grommets. Easily elevate your bathroom in no time.

Top it off with a plush set from one of these brands making organic bath towels!

Turkish robes and towels are some of the finest in the world, and that’s likely why Parachute crafts many of its bed and bath goods using 100 percent Turkish cotton. Available in the US, Canada, and select countries in Europe, we love the Speckled Shower Curtain for its relaxed pattern and super soft material. And if you’re into neutral colors (which pretty much go with anything), you can also find a handful of other eco-friendly shower curtains for your coziest bathroom style yet.

Before there were man-made inks with toxic ingredients, there were natural dyes made with plants and botanicals.

Using nature’s dyes from local flowers, spirulina, and avocado, each piece is handmade and therefore, unique—including three gorgeous shower curtain designs. And we’ve got good news: the brand ships internationally.
