The Best Eco Friendly Style Recycled Fashion

Eco Friendly
Choosing recycled fashion is a very eco friendly thing to do whether it's a purchase from a resale shop or from a fashion designer working with recycled fabrics and materials. Whenever you choose fashions that have been recycled in one way or another over buying new resources and energy are saved. While it's always fun to add something from this season's latest trends choosing recycled apparel can help you have a fashionable wardrobe and enjoy big savings over new.

Faux Fur

Apparels, Eco Friendly
Faux fur today is wonderfully soft, luxurious and warm. Beautiful color combinations and style that rivals real fur without all the ugly baggage that comes with real fur. How can you beat that, looking good and feeling good without the guilt. When I was little my grandmother had a fur coat, a real fur coat. I remember snuggling up against it and how warm and soft it felt. She really loved that coat. It was her only luxury and I'm sure it made her feel glamorous, far removed from her day to day life.

The biggest advantage though to eco friendly fabrics is the environmentally friendly way these crops are grown and the fibers processed and now it often involves more than just the fabrics themselves. More and more it includes...

Share The Love With Organic Flowers

Eco Friendly
The next time you buy flowers should you choose organic flowers? Until fairly recently I did not know I could buy organic flowers. I eat organic food and buy organic products when I can but I gave no thought to the flowers that I bought for myself or others. When I thought about it, it made sense. Growing flowers like growing any other crop usually involves the use of fumigants and pesticides. For many growers looking to produce the most beautiful blooms this is the easiest, cheapest and most effective way to go. Some of the chemicals being used have been banned in this country but find their way to other countries. The effects they have on the environment are a major problem when groundwater, soil and local wildlife are affected by heavy chemical use. A new breed of growers are findin...
