Since Earth Day is quickly approaching, I thought it was high time for a feature on sustainable style! Before I get into my finds for the day, I want to introduce you to Summer Rayne Oakes. This beautiful lady is not only an international model, but is also a leading environmental activist. As the worlds first “Eco-Model” Summer Rayne Oakes wanted to pursue the fashion industry on a quest to clean up our forests and keep the planet alive and well. For More information on Summer Rayne, you can visit The Eco-Model page, or her home page.
Now to celebrate sustainable style the handmade way, here are, yes, a few Etsy finds that are made from either organic and/or sustainable materials. Enjoy!
