What do your clothes say about you? Are you always style-conscious and fashion-forward, or do you just grab the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning? Whatever your style method may be, this fall, consider adding some eco-friendly fashions to your wardrobe.
For women, She-Bible and Kelly B are great places to find, organic styles. Most of their fashions are made right here in the U.S. of A. and from 100% organic cotton and other natural fibers. And if you don’t already know about it, Etsy is a great place to find handmade, eco-friendly or vintage/recycled clothing, accessories and etc. Check out this neat scarf, for instance, from RagingWool on Etsy…
It is made of cashmere, from recycled sweaters and it is fab for fall (and winter, of course)!
US News had a great article about 5 Ways to Green Your Fall Clothes Shopping. Their #1 tip: “Fashion is cyclical, and that means that hand-me-downs are back in style.” This couldn’t be more true! Shop recycled/vintage and dig up some great finds by rummaging through your parents’ old threads. US News also suggests – try just not shopping at all, which is a great way to save money, too!
