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 looks—from classic to bohemian, from day dresses to gowns to a casual tee-shirt and jeans.
All pieces are made from sustainable materials—the 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 orange’s natural scent. The La Mariposa collection incorporates dried silk cocoons, while other pieces make innovative use of recycled sari fabric and metalwork.
