No doubt you've been hearing about eco-friendly fashion lately. H&M pushed its new collection hard (with good reason) and high fashion labels like Edun, Organic by John Patrick and Stella McCartney make it a point to stay fair trade and animal friendly. Forget the idea that eco-fashion means hemp and raw-edged cotton. There are so many options you'll wonder why more of your wardrobe isn't repping ethical style. From handmade jewelry by local artisans to grass-fed, pesticide-free merino wool, prepare to be impressed; right on time for Earth Day, too.
