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.
