Dress, Accessorize & Live a Fashionably Eco-Chic Life...both for Mother Earth & Your Karma. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION & BEAUTY BLOG
It's all good & well to commit to being green, until you're actually confronted with the notion of being seen in public in hemp garments or hideous earth-whatever footwear. Thankfully, a raft of respectable & eco-minded designers have come out with enough chic garments, beauty products & home stuff that being earth-friendly no longer involves a tradeoff between your conscience & your sense of style.
Some of the best ways to be green at home, in your wardrobe, and with your beauty products:
