Let's Celebrate Earth Day Fashionably!

Today is Earth Day and it’s all about preserving the planet and going green!  In my efforts to find some Chic Eco-Friendly Fabulous Finds here is what I came across:

This fair-trade boutique offers a line of trend-setting, women-made products including stylish apparel, accessories and gifts with purpose.

Organically Dyed Cotton Scarves
Scarves are in this spring, they add a subtle chic~ness to your outfit. These organically dyed scarves prove that when ethics, organics and eye-popping colors are combined eco-chic fashion is born!

Antique Sari Cosmetic Bag
Every woman needs a cosmetic bag to hold all of her valuable makeup items. These eco-friendly hand crafted bags were made in New Delhi by a woman’s cooperative that uses recycled vintage saris that would otherwise be burnt to recover their gold or silver content. By putting old saris to use, the original craftsmanship is preserved and each bag becomes a work of art!

Circle of Life Earrings

These stunning silver earrings were made by women artisans in Kenya. Undeniably chic, the black and silver design of these earrings brings sophistication, style, and a story of unstoppable hope!
Envi was born on the melding of two philosophies on life by Founders Calli and Haven.  Calli was in the beginning stages of making her lifelong dream of opening a boutique a reality. Calli then met Haven, a native, who was living in a tipi and hadn’t worn shoes for 6 months. With their fusion of individual high fashion and low impact lifestyles, the pair came up with the idea for a hip boutique that sold eco-conscious clothing. All products are made from eco-materials (organic cotton, organic wool, soy,bamboo,tencel and modal)  and are fairly traded; I am loving Envi’s Chic Style!
