4 Sustainable Fashions for Earth Day

The trend of eating organic food has been spreading throughout the nation at full force thanks to stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joes. And if you place so much importance on eating organically, shouldn’t you be dressing organically too? No, we’re not suggesting that you make a dress out of the paper grocery bag you used for your last trip to the store. We’re talking about dressing in beautiful clothing that uses environmentally responsible materials and that are produced in an ethical manner. There are plenty of designers who have partnered up with Mother Nature to create products that look good on you and that look good for the future of the environment. So celebrate Earth Day today and check out these eco-friendly looks!

Collina Strada
Concerning fashion, New York might not be the first place you think of when talking about sustainable, eco-friendly clothes. But everything that comes from Collina Strada fits that description and their products are also all hand made in the Big Apple. Without outsourcing to different countries, which results in lots of resources needed to bring the products back to the States, the production of these bags and clothing create a low carbon footprint. These styles don’t take a big hit on the environment, but they are a hit when you wear them!

Cri de Cœur
The name says it perfectly. Translated from French it means “cry from the heart,” which symbolizes the deep desire of the company to change the world of fashion into becoming more environmentally ethical. This is another brand that goes vegan, and not just for lunch, but they use biodegradable materials like cotton, hemp and wood. But you would never guess these products were any different from your everyday shoes or handbags because they look just as stylish! But Mother Nature rests easy thanks to these looks.
