ColumnCheck out our Earth Day Fashion Guide, full of our trendy top picks from the environmentally conscious and active online shop EcoHabitude!
Known as the ethical marketplace, EcoHabitude aims to create more transparency in the online green marketplace, and has created the EcoTag system that indicates which ethical and environmental criteria that each product meets, be it Fair-Trade, organic, artisan made or low carbon footprint.
1. Denim Racer Dress by Pima Doll
This edgy but super comfortable dress (pictured at top) is right on trend for the spring and summer seasons. Made from Fair-Trade cotton jersey that had been dyed with natural indigo, this it the perfect cover up for hot days when you want your skin to be able to breathe.
2. Ikhanna Sandals by Indosole
Crafted by hand from recycled tires, vegan leather and hand-dyed batik fabrics, these sandals are the perfect match for the dress above. They’re casual enough for a beach day, but chic enough to take you out at night!
3. Arcing Lace Top by Myrrhia Fine Knitwear
If you’re look for a cozy but elegant cover-up, this top is the perfect choice. Hand-knit in Los Angeles from silky-soft organic cotton that was grown in California and spun in North Carolina, this is the ultimate made in USA top.
4. Moonstone Blue Silk Trousers by Ala Mairi
A spin off of the culotte trend seen all over the runways at the S/S 2015 fashion week’s, these silk trousers are a stunning addition to your wardrobe. Made from 100 percent raw silk, these trousers are ethically handmade under Fair-Trade standards. Pair them with your favorite nude heels and a light top and make a silky smooth fashion statement this spring.
5. Axis Top by Temperate
A superbly simple top to pair with the trousers above, this is another grown and made in the USA piece from EcoHabitude. The organic cotton was grown and processed, and the hand-cut and sewn in the states. Another classic wardrobe staple for the spring and summer!
6. Precious Wood Sunglasses by IWood Ecodesign
Theses stylish sunglasses are made from precious woods sourced from leftover scrap pieces recycled from the interiors of luxury corporate aircraft – pretty cool, huh? They are handmade in the USA, and all styles offer complete UVA/UVB protection. Bring on the sunshine!
7. Pochampally Shoulder Sling by Est Wst Collective
We love this boho chic organic cotton sling – it’s ideal for festival, summertime adventures and trips to the beach, park or countryside. Ethical and environmentally responsible, this bag is made through an artisan collective providing weavers and seamstresses in Southern India with fair wages and living conditions. The ikat weave is super fresh and right on trend with spring’s tribal patterns.
8. A-symmetrical Pleat Dress by Girlela
We had to add one more dress to the Earth Day fashion list! This one is made completely by hand in New York out of high quality Japanese cotton twill. It’s cute, quirky, immaculately cut and perfect for casual days and nights out!
