While we take such care to pick out organic, earth-friendly products for our children, often times we’re missing the big picture by not doing the same for ourselves.
Fashion has come along way since the first Earth Day in 1970 and using sustainable and recycled materials to make clothes, shoes and accessories is more than just a trend – it’s a way of life. Supporting companies that are good to Mother Earth is a win-win for everyone and ensures that our habitats are here for us to enjoy now and for generations yet to come.
