Camilla Norrback is a Finnish designer who believes in ecoluxury when it comes to fashion. She believes we can live in modern luxury while being ecologically and environmentally friendly.
According to Norrback’s website, camillanorrback.com, the majority of their garments are produced with “ecological or environment-certified natural material.” This means that environmentally friendly, chemical-free procedures are taken at every step of the production process. Look good, feel good, and live green.
Trevor Baylis is an inspirational inventor—in fact, I recently heard an interview with him on a local radio station, and was very impressed with his green ideas. He has invented the GreenPod, a wind-up video and music player. That’s right, you power it by winding it up.
This is a fabulously green gadget when compared to the iPod, which is not sustainable because the battery is not replaceable. After a few years with your expensive iPod, you have to throw it out and buy a new one when your battery dies. With the GreenPod, you simply have to wind it up to use it. It is sustainable, it’s green, and it’s stylish.
Your shoes don’t have to be green in color to be environmentally friendly. There are plenty of stylish shoes available that are eco-friendly and fair trade.
Green shoes have been produced with environmentally friendly materials. Another cool thing about purchasing these shoes is that they are sustainable—they are often made to be resoleable or repairable, so you can wear them for many years.
Eco-Fashion can be your new style!
Buying ecologically friendly, green products isn’t simply a new trend—it is also part of living in a sustainable, healthy way. Eco-fashion products are made with non-polluting fabrics, like organic cotton; they are produced without toxic chemicals that are unhealthy both for you and for the environment; and, they are ethically produced and fair trade.
