Do enjoy and please give us some feedback. We’d love to put more of what YOU want to know or read about.
FASHION BY THE RULES: Eco Fashions 2010
Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.
In recognition of this day, I thought that I might spotlight 2 different companies that are trying to make a difference to the environment of this country in particular.
With a name like DIRTBALL FASHION, one might get the wrong idea, but in
fact, the company produces a selection of tee shirts and recycled fashion for members of the entire family. They have even taken into consideration that since the items are produced in America, they have reduced the carbon footprint by lowering their shipping distances. Joe Fox is the president of this innovative company that is making a difference in how we market fashion in the 21 century. Please visit them at http://www.dirtballfashion.com/index.html for a complete presentation and facts about producing garments in an ecologically friendly way.
Next up, is a jewelry company, www.XOvivo.com which dedicates its Xo green collection which is made with recycled material as a reminder that we must keep mother earth beautiful. The geometrically based designs are offered in many distinct colorations and also in a variety of necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The designs are not age specific so they can be worn by kids and adults with the same pleasing effect.
Basically these 2 companies serve as a reminder that there are many ways to be involved with the environment and that doing so is not just about tree hugging and giving up all the things we have so become accustomed to during our lives.
