Earth Day is April 22, and several clothing designers have created special affordable items that are both stylish and eco-friendly!
Designers Scott Hahn and Rogan Gregory, founders of eco-friendly Loomstate, created the limited time Loomstate for Target line, which features softly textured fabrics, avian designs and antique washes.
"Organic doesn't always equal more expensive -- that's why we have partnered with Target to share the beauty with more people," Gregory says. "By making eco-fashions more affordable, it makes organic clothing more accessible, more of a way of life."
Loomstate for Target’s easy summer dresses, tees and shorts are perfect for Sunday brunch, weekends at the beach or your long-awaited summer vacation. Pick up Loomstate for Target items while they last -- they’ll only be available through May 16.
Anthropologie, one of my favorite spots, is creating Earth Day buzz with its Bee Tees, made in partnership with clothing line Edun (which was founded by rocker Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson). The $58 bee tees are available in two designs (one is shown at left), are made of 100% organic cotton, and aim to raise awareness of the plight of honeybees, which pollinate nearly a third of our food supply and are in danger of disappearance. Even cooler -- at select Anthropologie locations, there will be workshops to teach shoppers how to rework older wardrobe items so they look better than new, pot their favorite plants, and how to live greener.
