April 17, 2008 – April 22nd is Earth Day. Outside the context of school, this day sort of gets lost for the general public. When I was in high school in the late eighties and early nineties, I used to participate in the Earth Day assembly where we preached the importance of recycling. Now twenty years later (omg – has it been that long?) recycling is pretty common place. Even my two and a half year old knows about recycling and compost. Regardless of your feelings about the environment being “chic”, I think we can all agree that this shift in consciousness is a good thing.
While I consider all things at Love, Me to be greenish, there are some products which are screaming emerald green that I would love to highlight:
· Repurposed “I love Kyoto” tshirts by Posch are so freakin’ adorable
· Bamboo and organic cotton racer back tanks and neck tie body suits with green graffiti text like “Fair trade” “Sweatshop Free” “Act Locally” from Deux FM are a sexy way to declare your love for the planet.
· Repurposed clothing from Orphanage Clothing are made locally (and foot power delivered!) I am currently coveting the bandeau dress made from trench coats and the Jill shirts which are feminine creations from men’s dress shirts.
· More repurposed items from 88 Queen Street of Quebec. I heart the sweatshirts with banded collar and the sweet Army mini jacket with rickrack. Anything with rickrack deserves props!
Come on in and check it out for yourself!
