Earth Day has passed, and here we are still bombarding you with reasons to do good things for our world. Go with your instincts and do your part when it comes to preserving and conserving our dear planet when it comes to what you do, what you consume and yes, even what you wear. We promise it won’t hurt.
Everyone’s favorite pro-green designer does a green dress right. Stella McCartney’s Double Layer Tank Dress ($1,095, net-a-porter.com) is light and airy with a silhouette that works anywhere.
It’s brilliant: dresses concocted of…vintage parachutes! We’re screaming from the rooftops about Debbi Little Parachute dresses (about $500, equaclothing.com). Available in a handful of colors, the dresses are unique and worthy of being an heirloom piece.
It’s been in every major publication and even Oprah, and now we’re telling you: watch Planet Earth. Well into the series, we’re completely hooked. If you’re forgetting to Tivo, or have the problem of choosing between it and the HBO Sunday line-up (yes, we’re guilty), just pick up the series on DVD ($53.99, amazon.com). When you’re done watching (and we promise you’ll be glued), loan it out to everyone know. It’s a surefire way to keep us on the right path.
You’ve heard about it, you’ve read about it, and now it’s time to get your hands on it. Anya Hindmarch’s “I’m not a plastic bag” bag is all the rage and selling faster than Powerball tickets. While we recommend calling one of Anya’s stateside stores to get on the list, the bags will be available for pre-order May 7th at the label’s website and ship June 20th.
Bamboo, one of the earth’s softest and most climate-adjusting materials has now made it’s way into your bedroom by way of bed sheets ($39-$99, bedbathandbeyond.com). Soft like cotton, but with a much more glamorous look (the fabric drapes and falls perfectly), it will do something good for your bedroom karma AND the planet.
