We all like a little eco-friendly luxury in our lives. There are so many fantastic opportunities out there for us to take the things we love the most and switch them out for something that is a bit better for the planet. Here are some of the choices you could make.


Many of us like to start our days with a cup of coffee. However, the trend has been to move away from the humble mug of instant coffee and whip up something we would usually buy from a barista. Whether you want a simple yet delicious black coffee or you are preparing to craft the perfect cappuccino in the comfort of your own home, you can now do so.

However, the pods we use for these coffee machines are incredibly wasteful. Halo offer a range of Nespresso compatible pods that are compostable. Instead of putting the pods in the bin, all you need to do is put them in your compost pile. Then they can go out into your garden to help you create the perfect green outside space.


Most people automatically think about booking flights when they go abroad. However, you can have a fantastic journey if you instead decide to journey some other ways. Train travel is much more luxurious than it used to be. There are some fantastic journeys out there that you can take on sleeper trains. Now that’s an eco-friendly luxury.

Many people choose to make this an active part of their holiday, or they simply use it as a way to get from A to B to kick their holiday off.

You could also choose to go away on a sailing holiday. There are plenty of opportunities for you to join a sailing ship as part of the crew for an active but green holiday. If this sounds like a brilliant way for you to see some more of the world, you should look up some cruises for this summer.


Even your car back at home can benefit from an eco-friendly luxury upgrade. Green technologies have moved forward massively, and we are now able to find electric cars and many other ways of getting around. No matter what budget you have to spend, you will be able to find a great electric or hybrid car to drive. Even buying a second-hand vehicle is going to give you something amazing to drive. 

Not sold on the idea of an electric car? Or maybe you are not in the position to have a home charging point installed. There are still many cars that run on traditional fuel sources but have some sort of eco setting to help with fuel efficiency. Investing in one of these might be a great option for you.


The rise of fast fashion has led to some appalling conditions for workers abroad. What’s more, these clothes are not built to last. Landfills are quickly filling up with clothes that are not suitable for wearing any longer. 

If you have an eco-friendly luxury aka greener mindset, you should think about choosing clothes of a higher quality. These clothes can be worn more times. You can also buy from brands that you know to be ethical. This means you can be certain that your money is going to a good place, to people that care about paying their workers fairly.

In conclusion, are you trying to live a more eco-friendly luxury life. For it can be difficult. However, there is no reason why you still cannot enjoy the luxuries you have become accustomed to. You might even prefer the changes you make. No matter what part of your life you are changing, some eco-friendly luxuries will never go amiss.
