Our Eco-Friendly Fashion Guide

Mother's Day might be next month, but we're celebrating the head honcho of Moms today—Mother Earth. Seeking out locally produced fabrics and garments from designers with consciences, buying things that'll last (so you won't have to toss out that $5 tee that fell apart in the wash), and doing your research before making big purchases are all ways to help fix our broken planet. To assist in greenifying the fashion parts of your life, we've put together a little resource guide to the best blogs, e-commerce sites, and products that aim to be eco-friendly and stylish at the same time. So, consider this your get-well gift, Earth. We don't know what we'd do without you!
