Eco-Chic for Earth Day

Toggery by Kate D'Arcy is a line of organic clothing for the style and earth conscious consumer. An oxymoron yes, but if you must consume at least consume something that is made in the USofA and made from organic material like cotton or bamboo. Yup, Kate's clothes are made in Pennsylvania, not half way around the world and flown in using thousands of gallons of jet fuel. My point is, consume less and consume with some awareness of the location of your desired garment is made. Don't just shop at Walmart becuase it's cheap but put some money back into the pockets of your fellow Americans.

Do your part for the world this Earth day. Here's what I'm doing.
- Picking up someone else's litter. Every time I go to the beach or a park, I pick up 5 pieces of trash that is not mine. Everyone can do this simple task. It's the small things that make a big differnence
-I don't buy garbage bags. Use all those gorgeous shopping bags you have stuffed up under your sink for the trash. Your garbage has never looked better.
- Get a cool reusable water bottle and use it. Stop buying bottled water every time you get a bit parched. Check out my water bottle.

Being good to the environment is simple. Consume less. Find a way to do your part. The earth will love you if you love it back.
