We (my family and I) try to do our bit to help the planet—reusable produce and filet bags, straw market baskets, refillable water bottles and metal straws, grow a lot of our own vegetables, keep bees, compost, recycle, take the train and subway often, buy quality items that we’ll wear forever, and are informed about food waste issues by our younger daughter. But I know there are so many other things we could/should be doing. Here are a few of my eco-friendly finds:
Veja is a French sneaker company with a strong focus on transparency, fair trade, and social and environmental responsibility.
Today, T-shirts can be made of hemp, which has less of an environmental impact than growing cotton. It requires about a third of the amount of water and uses significantly less pesticide.
RE/DONE is an LA label that repurposes vintage Levi’s, which means no two pairs are exactly alike.
Brooklyn-based designer Laura Lombardi‘s jewelry is handcrafted from a mix of new, recycled, and reclaimed metals that Lombardi finds on her travels.
