Last week we covered all of the Earth Day essentials for babies, and now we are focusing on the fun, stylish and eco-friendly products for moms. From fashion and accessories to lifestyle products, there are a plethora of ways to give back to the planet looking cool and conscious! Here are some (more) of our favorites.
Calamarie Eco-Chic Accessories: Calamarie jewelry is beautiful, natural, one-of-a-kind, and made for the conscious modern woman who wants to do good, look and feel good, and who deserves to have it all. The jewelry is the creation of Catalina Lemaitre, a former economist turned entrepreneur/designer, and all of the pieces are hand-crafted by dozens of women artisans across the country of Colombia. Together, Catalina and these talented artisans create thoughtful designs that incorporate traditional techniques and recycled materials (orange peel, seeds, silk cocoons, vegetable ivory). The affordable and versatile eco-friendly accessories complement a range of styles and looksfrom classic to bohemian, from day dresses to gowns to a casual tee-shirt and jeans.
All pieces are made from sustainable materialsthe signature Orange Peel collection was inspired by roses made from the discarded peels collected from Colombian juice vendors. After a special drying process, the orange peel roses are firm and durable, with the added benefit of retaining some of the oranges natural scent. The La Mariposa collection incorporates dried silk cocoons, while other pieces make innovative use of recycled sari fabric and metalwork.
A Lot To Say, Inc.offers a line of lifestyle products with something for everyone in the family! Everything in the line retails for under $100 and is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles (helping to eliminate one of the largest environmental faux pas around!) while using a no water dye process. On top of that, a large portion of all proceeds goes back to several of their philanthropic partners (which include: Stand Up to Cancer, Heal the Bay, Animal Rescue Foundation andGlobal Green)! Talk about the ultimate do-gooder! For additional info, please visit www.alottosay.com.
