Sure, there is a certain amount of commercialization in Earth Day, but when brands and designers are inspired to showcase and price-slash their eco-friendly wares, we can't be that upset — it would just be nice to be that conscientious all year long. So when David Peck, one of our favorite young designers, announced his weekend-only Earth Day sale, props were due: Besides having utterly wearable clothes, CrOp By David Peck sources materials from a mixture of fair-trade and eco-friendly producers and then gives 10% of his proceeds back to his inspiration. For instance, David turned to New Orleans for his spring '12 range, mixing French flair with down south sophistication, and then donated part of the sales to The Gulf Restoration Network.
Now, for the eco-celebration that is Earth Day, Peck is offering an amazing 15% off his entire collection, which will benefit the revitalization efforts of the Gulf of Mexico —a great gift to our slightly more Western neighbors, but also a rather pleasant surprise for Florida wardrobes. Gorgeous, vintage-inspired bird prints and bright, colorful solids are on-point for any Southern Belle at heart. Short shorts and collared tanks make good summer investments, and the voluminous one-piece printed jumper is a welcome addition to any closet. The fact that buying the merch helps better our world is, of course, just an added bonus.
Promotion ends on Sunday, use promo code "HAPPYEARTH."
