Eco-Friendly Clothes for the Hippie in all of Us

The whole “going green” theme is super popular nowadays. We have more energy efficient light bulbs, electric cars, so why not create something for the fashion world? Something that does not lose value or glam, but can help minimize that carbon footprint we are trying so desperately to diminish.

Well they’ve done it! Celebrity designers have begun making clothes, for various styles and occasions, more environmentally friendly. We can even see a lot of these dresses on the red carpet.

So as you can see going green does not mean you have to lose out on any of the sparkle that comes with designer couture. All these dresses are gorgeous in their own way but manage to help out the environment or at least not add to its troubles.

And for us regular people here are some cute green clothes from Flora & Fauna

Will you be participating in this new trend?

Happy Shopping!
