Conscious Clothing & Beauty

This page includes ideas I find for living a more conscious lifestyle, through clothing, beauty and everyday products.

Over the years of running my clothing line, I have learned a lot about fabric, and the process of making clothes.  And honestly, most of it makes me really sad.  The fashion industry in general isn’t very pretty.  But, I do believe it is changing as awareness grows.  And I believe that we can make a difference.

To me, conscious clothing means this:

  1. Eco conscious fabrics
  2. Animal cruelty free
  3. Ethical work conditions
  4. Recycled, upcycled, reused as much as possible

So this is what you’ll find in my recommendations.  I’m still very much on a journey to transition my personal wardrobe to pieces that I’m all extremely proud of.  I’m hoping you’ll help me with what you learn too.

From the Blog:

Recycled Greeting Cards – Made in USA

Recycled greeting cards – I knew they had to be out there.  We go through so many cards in our house, mostly used as Thank You notes for birthdays and gifts.  I had hoped I would find a recycled paper option.  And… I did! 

Cute Trucker Hat with Hemp & Recycled Plastic

I’ve wanted to find a cute trucker hat for a long time.  But year after year the months seemed to pass without my taking time to look.  And now that I’m trying to buy everything eco conscious, buying a hat has become a project!

Does Environmentally Friendly Clothing Matter?

I’ve been down the rabbit hole and back so many times in the past 3 years while I study sustainability and environmentally friendly clothing.  Sometimes I wonder, does it really matter? Note: Sorry for the first 30 seconds of this video!  If you skip past, the quality is much better.

Eco-friendly Gift Wrap – Furoshiki Style

One of my favorite discoveries while living in Tokyo was the Furoshiki wrapping cloth.  I came across this nifty cloth a few weeks after we moved there, and I couldn’t get enough of it!

The Fashion Revolution

I recommend a program that I did last Summer which really opened my eyes.  It’s called The Fashion Revolution.  It’s created for consumers to learn more about where their clothes come from.  Check it out!  And please let me know if you do, and what you discover.

Our Clothing Line

Formerly called Trendy Little Sweethearts (the name is transitioning to For Animals. For Earth. slowly).  Our clothing line is an eco conscious line, created to help animal welfare groups around the world.  I recommend shopping in our Etsy store for the latest pieces.
