Good Fashion Perspectives
Who says eco fashion is not fashionable?
Although Blue Democracy doesn’t have a huge variety of clothes for you to choose from, the ones they offer are fashionable and edgy. Their clothes are made from bamboo, which require considerably less amount of water to grow than cotton.

Look what i found at Paper Source today! A super cute owl diary :))) (for those of you who don’t know, i am OBSESSED with owls.) The best part of this product is that it’s made from 100% recycled materials and when you buy a diary from them, they donate a workbook to a child in need. Go Ecojot!

What makes it fair?
As industrialization hit Uruguay in the 1970’s, many of its rural artisans (mostly women) found themselves left behind. To help generate income opportunities and preserve their craft, a non-profit group formed. Manos del Uruguay (Hands of Uruguay) helps these artisans with skills like administration, production, sales and marketing to help them find a larger market for their gorgeous handmade creations. Today, Manos boasts 350 members, including the women from the workshop in Trinidad, Uruguay, who not only earn a fair wage, but enjoy paid vacations, yearly bonuses, health insurance, and retirement benefits.
