Hey everyone! We hope you had a fabulous St. Patrick's Day weekend!
First things first, we did some guest posts today.
Check out some animal print loving over at C'est La Belle Vie
super cute story of how we met over at The Happy Hour
Well, speaking of St. Patty's day festivities, we decided to wear "green"!
No, not the color (mostly because we wanted to be pinched.. what?), we were talking about going green in regards to environmentally friendliness! Yeah it's nice to LOOK good, but it's also important to DO good. In the spirit of St. Patrick's day, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite "green" fashion brands that are doing their part in saving this nice little planet we call home.
1. People Tree
People Tree is a UK based company that promotes beautiful, fashion forward clothing and eco-friendly principles. Through this, they are able to design clothing made with organic and recycled materials, as well as produce them with very little carbon footprint. They also participate in Fair Trade, which is an initiative to help people in developing countries learn the skills they need to escape poverty and promote sustainability.
2. Eco Swim
Eco Swim by Aqua Green is a company that not only makes really cute, eco-friendly swimsuits, but also believes in giving back. With their profits, Eco Swim has funded several beach and waterway cleanups in areas of need. Plus, all of their materials used are 100% recycled! Read more about their sustainability efforts here.
Bodkin is high fashion meets sustainability. The designs are chic, modern, but comfortable. Three things we always look for in clothes. Bodkin uses organic cotton, post-consumer recycled materials, and employs non-harmful dye processes. What more could you ask for?
Kitty Cooper is a line of super adorable heels that are completely constructed from ecologically friendly materials. All the leather used in creating the shoes are tanned with organic substances, rather than environmentally harmful chemicals found in most leather production. The fabric and trim used are all vintage from the 1920's to the 1970's. Oh, and did we mention they're adorable?
Alternative Apparel is our go-to company for the softest and most comfy t-shirts and sweatshirts. The company is an advocate of social responsibility, and truly stands for what they believe. They produce clothing in the most fair and ethical way possible. They have guidelines that prohibit things like forced and child labor, harassment, and abuse within their factories and work with vendors to find a higher standard of environmental protection.
