1. Recycle by Orion Themes (Themeforest)
Recycle is a stunning theme made for green businesses and environmental organizations. This template makes great use of color to develop contrast and displays a masterful use of typography to create a sharp, distinct aesthetic.
If you want a website with a professional design, Recycle should be one of your top choices. It also has some nice touches to help you reach your business goals. There are plenty of call-to-action buttons and you can feature a phone number easily in the header to encourage prospects to get in touch.
Recycle also comes with plenty of customization tools to get your site looking just right. There are more than 25+ custom designed widgets for this theme, galleries and sliders, multiple header options, a page builder, and multiple blog layouts to name just a few.
2. Green Rescues by Ancora Themes (Themeforest)
Green Rescues has a colorful and balanced design. It uses readable sans-serif fonts throughout and accents buttons and other design elements with a bright green which you can customize to any color you’d like.
One of the strongest features of this premium theme is the blog design. It would work great for an eco blog or other eco-friendly organization that utilizes a blog to grow their influence.
Regarding customization options, Green Rescues has three pre-made homepage layout and comes with a page builder plugin to create many more templates. The one-click demo installer is also a great feature that will allow you to set up your site exactly like the demo featured in the screenshot above in just a couple minutes.
3. Eco World by Softweb Media (Themeforest)
Eco World has a nice style that complements the eco-friendly and environmentalism niche well. It’s powered by the Visual Composer plugin for custom template creation.
Visual Composer includes a lot of basic page elements that Eco World has styled to match its aesthetic. This theme has also included a lot of its own custom content blocks that you can use in any page. These components include client testimonials, donation boxes, and upcoming events.
Eco World also has a pretty advanced WooCommerce integration. Most themes would just offer one layout, there are four different layouts for the shop page and three layouts for the individual product pages. You can also publish events and causes which allow you to accept donations straight from your site. Altogether, Eco World is extremely customizable and comes with a wide range of features that an environmental website can use.
4. Earth by WPExplorer (Themeforest)
Earth has a simple style with an easy-to-browse boxed layout. The homepage has a drag-and-drop system you can use to rearrange the components and customize them with whatever content and images you want.
A lot of themes these days have minimalist aesthetics that include a ton of space between each element and require way more scrolling to get through the content. Earth has an older style, but the boxed layout is refreshing because you can see so much more content at once.
One of the coolest features in Earth is the built-in events system. You can publish new events just like you would new posts and then list them in widgets or display them in a visual calendar. Each event page includes a Google maps embed of the location and image gallery. It also has WooCommerce compatibility which can be used to add an eCommerce store to your site.
5. Balloon by Bears Themes (Themeforest)
Balloon stands out because it fulfills a more specific role in the eco-friendly space. It’s designed for organic food stores and marketplaces. It has a clean style that helps the product images to stand out and entice visitors to make an order.
As a food store theme, Balloon mainly focuses on the eCommerce experience. It integrates with WooCommerce for the product management, order fulfillment, and shopping cart. Not to mention, there’s a huge add-on marketplace built around WooCommerce, so you can find a plugin to add any feature you could ever want for an eCommerce store.
While Balloon is primarily an eCommerce store theme, it does also include a page builder plugin for custom page creation. You’ll have no trouble making beautiful designs for your homepage, about page, and contact page. There’s also full support for a blog to run alongside your store.
Which eco-friendly theme is best for you?
Recycle is the top recommendation because of its outstanding aesthetics and customizability. It doesn’t have to be used for a waste management organization. You can adapt it to any type of eco-friendly organization.
If you want a simpler and more old-school look for your organization, Earth will be an excellent choice.
Lastly, Balloon stands out as the best option for an organic market or other environmental products store.
