…but then i saw this little black dress on a fantastic site called greenloop (thanks to treehugger and natural as possible mom for the info!). i’m torn between the adorable “edie” dress above and this angel-sleeved number. both affordable (less than $80) and sustainable.
from their website:
All brands carried by Greenloop employ a variety of responsible practices, including: using eco-friendly, sustainable materials; employing energy efficient and low-impact production; investing in renewable energy and carbon offsets; and maximizing recycling and waste reduction. In addition to these practices, these companies engage in fair trade, support organic agriculture, engage in sweat-shop free production, protect human rights, and donate to various environmental non-profit groups through in-kind and financial gifts.
woman-owned and based in portland, their business philosophy is right in line with modernest: live deliberately. shop accordingly.
i am bookmarking them for all my future fashion needs!
