6 Ways To Love The Earth... in Style

April 22 marked Earth Day but what's becoming increasingly clear, is that it's more possible than ever to reduce your carbon footprint (all 365 days of the year) and with very little sacrifice. Where it was once a serious hunt to find green goodies I could love, they're now pretty mainstream...and pretty darn fashionable.

Here are 6 ways to love the earth...and your style: 

1. The Evolve Top by enCircled, $98. Ethically made, luxuriously soft and crafted from the finest eco-conscious fabrics, this versatile top can be worn in more than 8 different ways. Perfect for travel or simply keeping keeping your closet (and wardrobe waste) in check.

2. Alex and Ani Spiritual Armour Wrap Bracelets, $48 - $58 each. Each Alex and Ani piece is created to reflect the personality and importance of the wearer but more importantly it's created in a spirit of social responsibility with all pieces being manufactured sustainably in North America by a team that is active in charitable giving.

3. Looptworks Shiji iPhone Wristlet, $60. Crafted from scrap bits of premium Italian leather, this cute little wristlet reduces waste generated from the handbag industry.

4. Dalish Cosmetics Full Make-Up Kit, $135. Dalish offers everything you need to create a flawless 5 minute face without any harsh chemicals or animal testing, and product locally made to boot!

5. TOMS Vegan and Sustainable Chambray Wedges, $79. TOMS has always committed to donating a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair sold but they've recently expanded their selection of vegan footwear crafted from recycled materials.

6. Oom EthikWear Lenora Dress via Chartreuse Style, $98. This flattering frock is crafted from organic cotton and recycled polyester and is just one of the many pieces carried by purveyors of sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion, Chartreuse Style. Stop by their boutique on Queen & Roncesvalles or shop online for a greater assortment.
