Eco-Loverly Fall Fashion Finds

The Fall is upon us and while summer and warm weather may be coming to an end there is plenty about the Fall to be excited about.   Fall does happen to be one of my favorite times of year.  I love when the weather is not too hot but not too cold so you can still enjoy being outside with out being afraid of sweating.  I will miss the beach days but there is always next Spring and Summer.   Since the change in weather is here I figured I would find you some great fall eco-fashion finds that I love and I hope you will love just the same! Enjoy!

Pursue Navajo Tank

Pursue Navajo Tank

 

 

 

 

Pursue Navajo Tank is perfect for fall! The colors and pattern are right on track for the season. I know you might be thinking HEY! That is totally a summer tank but no I disagree! Layered with the right cardigan, scarf and knit hat! It is just what you need for your faux suede and fringe boots!  The highlights of this beyond cute tank are that it is made in the USA, GMO free and organic!!! The graphic is also printed with water based inks. The price is a little steep for a tank $52 but to have good quality ethical clothing I have to give in sometimes.

Pursue Fairisle Drape

Pursue Fairisle Drape

 

 

 

The Fairisle Drape is exactly perfect for fall! No heavy coat necessary and drapes are so easy to move in and coordinate accessories around. I have long been a fan of drapes! This is another item from Puruse and has many of the same highlights as the Navajo Tank in that it is GMO free, made in the USA, and organic but this one also boasts recycled packaging! Which is always a plus to see when you open your box! The price is $56 which isn’t bad for a “coat” of sorts.

Stardust VI Earrings

Stardust VI Earrings

 

 

 

 

The Stardust VI Earrings are probably some of the most beautiful earrings I have ever seen and I would like to have a pair right this very second.  I can’t even explain to you how beautiful I think these earrings are!  The Stardust Earrings are made from reclaimed brass which makes them kind of really cool besides amazingly beautiful. The earrings are also made and developed by a Woman Owned business which is always something I support! I really actually want a pair and will most definitely have it on my Christmas list this year! The price is $88 which for reclaimed/recycled jewelry is actually not bad for this amazingly fab set!

 

 

SPROUT BAMBOO BIRD TREE WATCH

SPROUT BAMBOO BIRD TREE WATCH

 

 

 

The Sprout Bamboo Bird Tree Watch is super cute. Sprout is a pretty popular company and you can totally see why! Their products are gorgeous! The Bamboo Bird Tree Watch is totally my style! I know birds and branches are all over the place right now but none as cool as this watch. Once you are finished with this watch and if you can’t give it to someone you can recycle it! It is compostable, recyclable, biodegradable! It comes in recycled packaging, made from post consumer products as well as plant based plastics! There are many amazing reasons why you should choose Sprout besides their designs! It is only $60 for all of that awesomeness!!!

Antique Tube Collection Bracelet

Antique Tube Collection Bracelet

Antique Tube Collection Bracelet

This bracelet is georgous! Yet another not so normal “green” product. The Antique Tube Collection Bracelet is perfect for that person you know who always gives you a hard time about green purchases or thinks fashion isn’t involved in ethical apparel. I think everyone should love this bracelet.
Description: A cluster of gold and silver strands elegantly clasp around the wrist to create this Tiffany Kunz bracelet design. Handmade from melted bullet casings and recycled metals (brass, silver, copper) by HIV-positive women in Ethiopia. In addition to providing sustainable economic opportunities, Raven + Lily returns proceeds to fund healthcare and literacy programs for women and children in this community. Due to its unique nature, this piece will antique over time.
Measurements: 7.25″

Here is a little bit about how the beads are made:
In the mountains of Northern Ethiopia, farmers supply bead makers with artillery shells (from former war conflicts) that are found on their lands. Through traditional techniques passed down for generations, the village artisans melt these shells down to produce handmade, delicate beads. The beads go through several stages to achieve the final polished look, and then they are sent to the women at Entoto Mountain. The Entoto Mountain is a place where those suffering with HIV/AIDS (ostracized by their family + society) come because they believe there is “holy water” that might cure them of their disease. Most women are uneducated about their disease and resort to begging in order to survive. Our partnership helps employ women from this area and also provides HIV care and educational opportunities for their whole family. These women skillfully create our exclusive jewelry designs in a loving, community environment. What was once intended for harm now brings hope and life.

LovingEco

I am tired of all of the deals that everyone else gets with websites like Send The Trend, Beyond The Rack, Style Mint and the list goes on and on. When are the eco-conscious designers going to break out and give us a much less crunchy look! Our chance has finally arrived! LovingEco offers daily private sales that help you make smart and fashionable choices. We all know the greenest choice is not to purchase at all but if you have to why let our environment suffer in the process.
What I really like about LovingEco’s site isnt the sales at all but their team. You get to see their pictures and get a sense of who they are besides just forcing eco-fashionable sales on you. Not that that is what they do but many eco-businesses can write an excellent mission statement and provide you with that you want to hear to increase their sales but the LovingEco team gets personal. You can feel if you are unsatisfied you know exactly who you can hold accountable and that takes courage! Did I also mention that proceeds go to charity when you purchase their Style for a Change tank.  100% of the proceeds go to one of 6 charities they have listed but you get to choose which one you want to donate to.  That is a change I can definitely get behind.

LovingEco’s Mission:Our mission is to create a healthier planet. We are passionate about inspiring change, giving back, having fun and making eco stylish. LovingEco helps give people the opportunity to make better choices about the products they purchase so that we together can create a more environmentally and socially conscious planet. By choosing to shop here you will create conscious positive choices from organic, recycled, eco-friendly and ethically produced items. And with each purchase a portion of sales goes back to charitable causes. Now start shopping differently…small changes can make a big difference.

Have you ever tried LovingEco? If so what was your experience? I admit I haven’t purchased from them yet but I do plan on doing so! Keep in mind the holiday’s are coming and this is a great idea to get good deals on some great eco-conscious items.

These absolutely fabulous scarf-necklaces are made from upcycled t-shirts and factory remnants and are handmade by local women. Ecoist offers a variety of prints but I personally can never say no to animal prints in general.Ecoist’sScarf-Necklace is moderately priced but that isn’t to say the necklace isn’t worth the purchase! I am completely swooning over these!

7 Rings of Peace Earrings

7 Rings of Peace

7 Rings of Peace

Mother’s day is almost here and you know an important part of being a mother is keeping the peace in the home but does she get enough peace herself? Maybe not? Why not give her the gift of peace with the 7 Rings of Peace Earrings made by From War to Peace. These fantastically designed earrings drew inspiration from ancient times where 7 circlesmeant perfection as well as the 7 pointed star which stands to represent the peaceful union of all nations and faiths. How more peaceful can jewelry get right?
The 7 circlesbronze earrings were recycled from bronze that was formerly disarmed nuclear missiles systems. I have written other articles about From War to Peace’s bracelets made from disarmed bullets.
I love these items and I think your mother would too! They can be worn everyday but are elegant enough to be dressed up for a fancy evening out! I may not be a mother but I am definitely going to purchase a pair of these earrings for myself ASAP!
