Dress, Accessorize & Live a Fashionably Eco-Chic Life...both for Mother Earth & Your Karma. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION & BEAUTY BLOG

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:
