I was having a great chitchat the other day with a very cool lady who you will hear about later this week. During our conversation, we talked about the fact that those of us who want to buy more organic, environmentally friendly things like beauty products or clothing have often had to sacrifice fashion. It's been really tough to find beautiful, fashionable clothing that is also easy on the planet, which leaves the ecochick in a dilemma: Look really sharp, or save the earth?
More and more clothing manufacturers are realizing there are plenty of consumers like us, who want it all. Cool and fashionable and ecofriendly and sustainable. Places like Blue Canoe Organic Clothing. They create a range of tops, bottoms and lingerie pieces that work for both the yoga studio and the street. There's items made from 100% organic cotton or bamboo, and items that have a little lycra blended in to give it the appropriate level of stretch. The styles are simple, in pretty solid colours such as violet or apple. There's gorgeous go-anywhere items like this bamboo dress, comfy, flattering pieces like this v-neck tee, easy, cozy bottoms like this crop pant, and plenty more. Everything is made in the USA, and they often have items on sale.
Their online store only ships to the USA (boo!) but the good news is, several items are available at Not Just Pretty, which ships anywhere in Canada for a small fee - or if you spend over $100, shipping is free! Check out the entire line at BlueCanoe.com.
