Today we celebrate Earth Day, the anniversary of what is widely considered the birth of the modern environmental movement. The hippie and flower-child consciousness and energy of the late sixties are to thank for this event (and let's not forget some amazing fashion moments). Forty four years later, hundreds of planned events are happening today around the world bringing awareness and education about environmental issues. These gatherings are meant to challenge people to think how they can transform the everyday to a more eco-friendly way of life.
Lucky for us, there are some amazing eco-friendly brands that are doing this everyday, without sacrificing fashion. Some of my favorites include Amour Vert, which brings Paris meets Cali styles in a mix of high low fashion. They even go the extra mile with their Buy A Tee, Plant A Tree program. So cool.
The People's Movement is another favorite as they fight against single use plastic one pair of fashionable footwear at a time. Alternative also makes the list and some amazing easy pieces for Spring & Summer. Their take on maxi dresses, skirts and tees are all worth checking out.
Now that you have some eco-friendly lines to shop, let's not forget to finish the look with my absolute favorite brand of makeup, RMS. Founded by the oh so talented Rose-Marie Swift, this makeup line is not only made from organic ingredients, but ingredients that will nourish and heal your skin while they work. Double duty! A few of my never leave the house without products can be found below.
If you are doing some shopping today, in the spirit of Earth Day, keep these eco-friendly brands in mind. Check out some of my favorites below and Happy Earth Day!
