Gucci Plans to Create Biodegradable Sunglasses – for how long exactly?

In a very late but appreciated attempt to join the 21st century, Gucci is releasing sunglasses made from a biodegradable material called “liquid wood” as well as recycled metal and mineral glass lenses. As an alternative to plastic, liquid wood is a composite of bio-based substances, such as wood fiber from sustainably-managed forests and lignin extracted from paper and candle wax during manufacturing processes. Although biodegradable fashion is definitely the future of manufacturing, and designers of all kids will need to (or should have already been) rethinking their effect on the environment through their own production practices, it seems like the larger…

Juma Scarves Are My Winter Dream

I fell in love with Juma scarves before they released their 2011 Collection of beautiful, original and huge neck wear, and with the new set of breathtaking pieces, in a theme of a dreamy Africa… I’m smitten. Juma is a company made up of world travelers and beauty seekers. Don’t be jealous, when you see their designs you will understand why it’s necessary that some of us are more fortunate than others. Juma is a brother and sister team, Jamil and Alia Juma, both of whom are more than qualified to usher in this decade in future forward fashion. The scarves are…

Paper Wallet Designer Series are Here!

Finally! We wrote a blog post about Paper Wallets back in April (here), anxiously awaiting their designer series (not that their solids aren’t great), and they informed us of their release this week! If you didn’t read it, you can, or heres a run down: Paper Wallets is a company dedicated to eco solutions, and innovation. Their thin “paper” wallets are durable, water resistant, flexible and spacious. They wont tear without a beating, or bulk up your already tight ass pants. YET, they have as much room as most any common wallet and allow their user to adapt to a minimalist lifestyle,…

So it’s earth day! What’s the earthy thing to do?

Buy nothing at all today, because consumerism is part of the reason we need an earth day. THEN. Buy Vintage tomorrow! Vintage is one of the most earth friendly things you can buy. Not only was little to no energy used in preparing the vintage piece for resale but more than one person is using a single manufactured item rather than one item being created for each person. New items take manufacturing, employees using precious energy that could be used on helping the planet. Also other resources as far back as the painful creation of the factory it was made…

There are Environmentally Friendly Fashion that’s not embarrassing to wear?!

Yes. There are several! I recently bought a recent issue of metropop showing a short list of high end and mid range designers who are turning their industry in a more eco friendly direction. I’ve compiled a list and a run down so the next time you shop on ebay, a local boutique or Street Market, you’ll remember these Environmentally Friendly Fashion companies.
