Celebrate Mother Earth - Stylish & Sustainable Shopping

These days, there is no need to sacrifice style for sustainability. Eco-friendly is now eco-chic.  To celebrate 45 years of Earth Day, I have gathered some of my favorite finds that are either eco-friendly, recycled, or sustainable. All are echo-fabulous. Do take a moment to read the stories.  These companies are trying to make a difference.

A Peace Treaty Jewelry
I discovered these Deco designs via Elle Magazine. APT works with artisan workshops across ten countries. The people that hand make the designs would have much trouble finding work if it wasn't for founders Farah Malik and Dana Arbib. See a selection of these gems at
Saks Fifth Avenue

Juice Beauty Earth Day Bundle
Today is a great day to try Juice Beauty, with this fabulous value set of incredibly hydrating products.

A statement from Juice Beauty:
"We purchase the majority of our ingredients from local West Coast USDA Certified Organic farms so we can monitor the quality and limit fuel waste and then we manufacture the majority of our products with solar power. We believe staying local is better for our community and eco-system. We believe harnessing sustainable energy is better for our planet."

Oka B Shoes
Thanks to my dear friend, Barbara, Oka B shoes are a fave find! Chic and comfort usually do not go hand in hand except with these stylish sandals and ballet flats. A shoe that's recyclable, waterproof, made in the USA and most styles are under $45. Color me happy.

"At Oka-B, we pride ourselves on being an eco-friendly company practicing continuous loop recycling. Our low-waste factory in Buford, Georgia recycles everything from flip flops and sandals to boxes and other raw materials. We encourage all of our loyal consumers to recycle with us. It's so easy!" See site for details.

Esque Studio 
I have been smitten with these artisans and their wonderful work for years. Their glass work is truly art, and makes for a fabulous gift. I appreciate their mission. They try to make sure every business decision makes a difference in usage and environmental impact. They produce zero Co2 emissions and run on sustainable wind power credits. Each week, approximately 100 pounds of excess glass is recycled. See a collection of their work at

Organic Crib Mattress
I wish I was more conscious of the environment when I had my own baby. The idea of an organic mattress makes so much sense! This mattress offers "comfortable, solid support that is built to last, and features a 250-coil innerspring assembly. It is covered with 100% certified organic cotton and eco-wool padding, which is hand-tufted between two layers of certified organic cotton fabric."

Nike Better World
I had no idea that Nike used recycled plastic bottles in making their superior performance gear. I already love my Nike gear, but I appreciate it more knowing the company's commitment to creating less waste in this world. Not to mention, I love their style!

WeWood Watches
I have always thought that these watches were very cool. And the mission behind each watch is the coolest. For each toxin-free, hypoallergenic WeWood watch sold, a new tree is planted in association with American Forests.  These watches make a fab Father's Day or Grad gift.

I am seriously obsessed with my own TOMS. I want to be comfy but love a little fancy footwork, too.  I wear the glitter style. But more than chic looks, I am impressed with the story. Their motto is: TOMS is a company that will match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Now TOMS Eyewear has evolved, and with every pair purchased, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need. One for One.
