Eco Shop

If you've got nothing good to wear
And the closet's looking a little bare
Treat yourself to something nice
Eco-friendly shopping is our favorite vice.

Green is the New Black

Whether you're off to the office or an amazing vacation be sure to outfit yourself in the latest eco-fashions. From practical to couture eco-fashions are now available at your favorite local superstore or a chic boutique.

  • Look for products made from organic materials or that are vegetarian (animal free). Organic clothing is made from natural fibers that have been grown without any pesticides or any other toxic materials. Vegetarian products are made from durable materials similar to leather without any animals being harmed in the process.
  • Try to buy clothes that have been ethically produced or Fair Trade Certified. This means that the clothing you buy has been made with respect for people and the environment. Ethically produced clothing can ensure you that the people making it have been given proper work standards.
  • Eco-fashion has also gone by another name vintage. Try out your local thrift or second hand stores to see if you can find a one-of-a-kind vintage piece. Donate some of your old pieces that haven't been worn in years to add to somebody else's collection.
