Freewaters – A Refreshing New Company

I love flip flops.  I live in them even in the winter time, so I am always on the lookout for a cool new pair.  That’s why I was stoked to hear about Freewaters. Not only do Freewaters look sweet, but they are an activist brand that is dedicated to helping people around the world gain access to clean drinking water.  From their site: Every year, more people die from the consequences of unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war. Dirty water and a lack of proper hygiene kill…

Rebekah Green Wants To Know: Are YOU An Eco-Hero?

Rebekah Green Wants To Know: Are YOU An Eco-Hero?

A few months ago I wrote a post about an exciting young jewelry designer named Rebekah Green.  Green is a passionate environmentalist who launched her sustainable line of affordable, unique fine jewelry in 2009.  I’m thrilled to report that her business is thriving, and she’s just launched a new initiative on her retail site called Eco-Hero. Eco-Hero is a way to recognize the efforts of everyday people as they work to make the world a better place.  If you, or someone you know, is doing something special–big or small–that deserves recognition, Rebekah wants to…

Isn’t It Time To CHANGE Your Clothes?

Change. President Obama ran a ground-breaking campaign based on it.  Taco Bell assures us that it is good.  The Buddha said that our reluctance to accept it is the cause of all suffering.  Most of us realize that some kind of change needs to happen in the world today if we hope to improve our individual and collective existence.  But change is simply a tool–without conscious thought and a plan of action, it can cause damage by bringing anarchy and confusion. The question is:  What can we change in our own…

The Future of Fashion…

Photo Credit:  Digital Sophia Photography Check out Starre Vartan’s recent post on Huffpo Green entitled:  “If the Future of Fashion Isn’t Green, What Is It?” where she gives an inside scoop on the eco fashion summit/discussion/debate/salon that took place this month in New York.  Vartan gives an excellent analysis of the issues that were discussed and wraps up with a paragraph that makes me want to cheer out loud: Fashion is evolving, and despite James Woudhuysen’s view, it seems that change is coming from designers, passionate ecofashionistas who support them, and the behind-the-scenes folks…

WearYourMusic.org: GIVEAWAY!

I love rock n’ roll.  It has the ability to energize and inspire me and it helps me get through even the worst days. It is an American institution; a celebration of youth, freedom and rebellion. And it sounds good when it’s really, really loud. That’s why I was stoked when I got an email from the folks at WearYourMusic.org, a righteous company that makes bracelets out of used guitar strings and sells them for charity. That’s right.  You can get a bracelet made out of the used guitar strings of…

All You Need Is…LOVE(more)!

I don’t often go off on a tangent on this blog.  Mostly I try to stay true to the subject of green fashion and beauty and the amazing people working to establish them in mainstream commerce.  But today I want to take a few minutes to talk to you about LOVE…and about the sweet little company called Lovemore that has made it their mission to promote LOVE in everything we do. Love isn’t just about red hearts and chocolates.  Nor is it simply about Hallmark cards, romantic holidays, babies, puppies and kittens. …
