Now that pBd has gone the way of the dinosaur, I’ve decided to change up the posting schedule a bit.
Sure, that means that you will have seen a fashion post from me twice within the span of four days. But, you know what? Sometimes you just have to sacrifice for awesome. And also, one can never be TOO fashionable!
In honor of Earth Day and living and Eco Gangsta lifestyle (which is just code for looking fly while also being conscious), I’ve dug up some stylin’ eco friendly fashion finds that don’t make you want to punch yourself when you find out how they’re made. Think fair trade, organic, vegan, type stuff that you might not want to eat, but probably you could if you had to.
All of these finds can be seen and purchased in one place on my Sweet Relish Eco-Awesome list (and, no, conspiracy theorist, I don’t get paid if you shop there, although honestly, I probably should!).
10 Earth Loving Eco-Friendly Fashion Brands to Rock Now
Wear Panda Sunglasses. Handcrafted from sustainable bamboo while doing awesome at the same time. Each pair of glasses you buy to look fabulous also allows someone in need to see by providing a free eye exam and free eyewear via their partnership with TOMA.
Priti NYC. Nail polish that doesn’t hurt. Free of carcinogenic ingredients and vegan you can rock these dope colors and also not worry about your fingers falling off one day. Also, they’re having an Earth Day sale!
Vicky Meyers Creations. Pretty much anytime you take something old and turn it into something new instead of chucking it into the trash, you’ve done good.
Fair Indigo. They find awesome stuff from around the globe. Fair trade. No sweat shops and evil crap like that. I’d actually fly to Mexico for a beach weekend and a margarita these flats they’re that adorable.
Fawn&forest. Sellers of organic kids clothing. As much as I physically hate the site of a squirrel on the land (long story involving thousands of dollars of damage to my house), I actually love this shirt a little. Made by Alternative Apparel.
Tiny Revolutionary. It’s about way more than how these shirts are made (although you can rest assured they’re made organic, with soft inks, and never seen the inside of a sweatshop), it’s the message. Teaching kids and reminding bystanders to do the right thing in this world. #3 has been rocking the Tiny Revolutionary vibe for years.
Reneu Shoes. They please feet, minds, and the Earth. Made with minimally invasive techniques and ready to be all supportive and comfy on your feet. They’re pretty adorable too.
Canopy Verde. Seriously, I teared up at the gorgeousness of these bags. The clutch. THE CLUTCH! And, this, “All Canopy Verde handbags are made with organic cotton, OEKO-TEX approved dyes, chemical-free embroidery, and either animal free, vegan “leather” or chrome-free leather.” Thank you!
S.W. Basics. I fell in love with this company when they were called Sprout because they use fewer ingredients, that are fair trade, and organic. Plus, everything smells so friggin’ fabulous. And they’re straight outta Brooklyn. Everything’s cooler in Brooklyn.
Greenola Style. A company that empowers women AND cares about the land. Total scizz-ore! This necklace is made gorg by re-purposing paper. Best looking paper I’ve ever seen.
