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!!!

I keep finding more and more green, organic, upcycled, community, made in the USA, ethical ect businesses and products every where which is very exciting for me, Greenies!!!!  I really enjoy seeing so many new responsible businesses popping up.  Even the difference from when I started The Beagle until now I am amazed.  There are still some fakers out there but the legitimacy of many of these businesses and their intentions have stood out which warms my heart.  Let’s keep supporting our cause Greenies!!!

Recycled Skateboard Bangle

Recycled Skateboard Bangle

 

Recycled Skateboard Bangle is beyond cute! Wood accessories are perfect for summer! I really love that each piece is different from the next so no two can be exactly alike!! Description:  MapleXO’s jewelry is hand produced from recycled skateboards in many color variations from subtle and sweet to loud and crazy. Since almost all skateboards are made from 7-ply Maple Wood these bangles are super strong and durable, but delicate enough to rest sweetly around a wrist.  Each item is one of a kind and slightly varies from one another. The shape and size are the same as the photo, but shades and patterns will vary.

Urbano Eco Trash Can

 

One of my favorite stores ever is UncommonGoods.com. I can always find some really fun and interesting stuff there. Recently I tried the Urbano Eco Trash Can  from the Eco-Friendly Products section of Uncommon Goods and I am in love! I have trash can issues in my apartment, as the one I have hanging over a cabinet door isn’t big enough and I have no real place for a large standing can in my kitchen. I do have pets so I have to be conscious where I put a can so they don’t get into it or knock it over.  This has been an ongoing issue plaguing me ever since I moved into my new place.  The Urbano has afforded me some great opportunities to de-clutter and reuse bags that would otherwise be sitting in a cabinet making a mess.  Although I bring bags with me when I go shopping I do appreciate a reason to use the plastic bags I do accumulate.
The Urbano is the perfect size to fit in my kitchen right against the wall between my oven and one of my cabinets. I can open both without the Urbano being at risk of getting knocked over. I can make use of the plastic bags have and eliminate clutter in one of my cabinets from saving them. The Urbano fits a large amount of stuff in it which I kind of wasn’t expecting.   It isn’t a huge trash can but magically it holds 2 liter soda bottles, cans, plastic containers of different shapes and sizes (yes, I was using it for my recyclables). I tried to cram it with as much stuff as I could and not 1 thing fell out or even made the Urbano sides bulge. That being said I am not trying to say the Urbano holds the same amount as a huge garbage can but a single woman who eats pretty regularly, has 2 pets, cleans more than regularly, and recycles makes some trash and the Urbano is more than capable of handling my mess.

About The Urbano Eco Trash Can at Uncommon Goods: Winner of the 2005 Pratt Product Design Competition, designer Kevin McElroy’s clever trash can allows you to store and reuse the plastic bags that you collect from shopping in a neat, organized way. Simply loop trash bags around the cut-out sides and push them all the way down, creating a visual of stacked handles all along the side. When you are ready to use one, just move it up to the handles and hook so that it won’t fall in on itself. Made in the USA.

Two Toned Cork Apron

I was perusing one of my favorite online stores the other day looking for fun green things to present to my faithful readers and I found a few super cute, really interesting and just plain fun items that could work in almost any home. My major issue with ethical home products are that they are usually ridiculously expensive, look “reused” or have no thought behind it. In that they are bland and design/aesthetics didn’t really have a part in the development process. I understand that pricing for some products is necessary due to the process the items may have to go through to be made and usable. I still feel that an integral part of being ethical is obviously pricing. I feel like what is the point of making an item ethical when you have to spend an arm and a leg for it. I realize I have mentioned this before but to me a part of being ethical and conscious is being affordable otherwise it isn’t very useful for helping the masses. Here are a few super cute things I found at Uncommon Goods that I would enjoy owning myself.

 

Upcycled Zip Wallet

Upcycled Zip Wallet

 

 

Product Description: Upcycled Zip Wallet’s raw materials once spent their days lounging around the beaches of Bali. That sounds lovely, except that those materials are actually plastic bags. Billions of plastic bags are used every year, and many of them find their way to the ocean, where they can be damaging or fatal to marine life.
For each wallet, ten of those wayward bags are reclaimed from the shoreline, cleaned, cut and crafted into a durable cover. Inside are accordion dividers to keep your own resources organized, and an inner zippered pocket for your valuables. Because of the upcycled nature of the materials, each one will have a unique combination of bright colors. Because these wallets are handmade of recycled materials, each is one of a kind. Made in Bali, Indonesia
.

 

Recycled Ceiling Tin Photo Frames

Recycled Ceiling Tin Photo Frames

 

 

 

Product DescriptionRecycled Ceiling Tin Photo Frame Add vintage charm to your photos with textured, metal frames. The intricate rococo patterns are actually pressed tin ceiling tiles that once adorned homes and shops around the Northeast. Salvaged from crumbling buildings and remodeling projects, artist Margaret Taylor turns them into rustic frames. Due to the reclaimed nature of the materials, colors and patterns will vary. Handmade in Georgia

 

Two Tone Cork Apron

Two Tone Cork Apron

 

 

 

Product Description: The Two Tone Cork Apron is crafted from ultra-thin sheets of cork, a sustainably harvested material that is supple, durable, and naturally water resistant. Derived from the bark of Cork Oak trees, the material’s natural veining and stippled appearance gives a rich earthiness that is unexpected in a typically textile-based accessory. The dark-stained cork is set off nicely by the contrasting, lighter natural color of the ample central pocket, which is the perfect catchall for cooking utensils, towels or recipe cards. The apron is stitched around the edges and is reinforced with a cotton backing. Made in Portugal.

 

 

Fire Extinguisher Pendant Lamp

Fire Extinguisher Pendant Lamp

 

 

 

Product Description: Fire Extinguisher Pendant Lamps are crafted from spent fire extinguisher canisters. The artist Valentino Llegada hand paints each one in shades of black and gray. The aluminum material is lightweight and sturdy, and its interior is left with its metallic finish, which helps reflect the light out into the room. Available in two styles – cylindrical or with rounded edges – created by using either the top or the bottom of the canister. Comes fitted with a light socket and cord, and is ready to hang with included screw hooks. Cord does not have built-in switch. Handmade in Florida. Sold individually

Depression Era Glass Earrings

Recycled Glass Earrings

Recycled Glass Earrings

 

 

How adorable are these recycled glass earrings!?! I love the pattern in particular. Not that the pattern is anything very intricate but the simplicity is what makes me like them that much more. Recycled glass items in general have been interesting me more and more lately. I have been making some crafts of my own at home using recycled glass. I don’t know why exactly recycled glass has been catching my eye so often but these earrings are completely my style and the fact that they are recycled glass is only an added bonus.
If you don’t know what Depression Glass according to Wikipedia is clear or colored translucent glassware that was distributed free, or at low cost, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression. The Quaker Oats Company, and other food manufacturers and distributors, put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Movie theaters and businesses would hand out a piece simply for coming in the door.
Most of this glassware was made in the central and mid-west United States, where access to raw materials and power made manufacturing inexpensive in the first half of the twentieth century. More than twenty manufacturers made more than 100 patterns, and entire dinner sets were made in some patterns. Common colors are clear (crystal), pink, pale blue, green, and amber. Less common colors include yellow (canary), ultra marine, jadeite (opaque pale green), delphite (opaque pale blue), cobalt blue, red (ruby & royal ruby), black, amethyst, monax, and white (milk glass).
Although of marginal quality, Depression glass has been highly collectible since the 1960s. Due to its popularity as a collectible, Depression glass is becoming more scarce on the open market. Rare pieces may sell for several hundred dollars. Some manufacturers continued to make popular patterns after World War II, or introduced similar patterns, which are also collectible. Popular and expensive patterns and pieces have been reproduced, and reproductions are still being made.
You can get a pair of your own recycled glass earrings or jewelry you can visit Shop to be Green. Shop to be Green tons of great recycled glass and pottery jewelry and items for your home.

Because I love these earrings so much I have decided to give a pair away so you can enjoy them as much as I do. Click here to enter to win a pair of your very own Depression Glass Earrings.  Good Luck and don’t forget to check out Shop to be Green for even more awesome items!!!
