As we celebrate Earth Month 2009, if you are in the Atlanta area, I encourage you to visit the Third Annual Eco Trunk Show. Laura Turner Seydel has once again put together Atlanta’s premier eco shopping event. This one-day event brings together some of Atlanta’s most committed and best eco friendly designers, artisans, and shop keepers to display the latest in sustainable jewelry, clothing, beauty products, home décor and accessories.

The Trunk Show is today, April 16, 2009, 10 am – 6 pm and will be held at Eco Manor, 348 Manor Ridge Road, Atlanta, GA 30305. Contact Amanda Leesburg, amanda@leesburgpr.com for additional information.

Over 15 vendors including Alejandra Dunphy Textiles, Bamboo Studio, Bella Bee Designs, Indie Peace, Pizza Fusion, Sally B’s Skin Yummies, Verde Paperie, and Zoica Matie will be offering outstanding deals.

Be sure to take plenty of eco shopping bags and load up! See you there. 🙂

YES YOU CAN be eco and luxurious! Designers Beyond Skin Sui Generis shoes and Rachel Cassar are very adept at producing impeccable eco friendly designs that are sophisticated.

Although Rachel Cassar is not an eco shoe designer, she showed up on my radar as many eco designers do.  Rachel hails from Australia and has a passion for eco fashion.  Both of these designers maintain unwavering ethical production standards. Sui Generis uses vegetable materials and 90% of Rachel Cassar garments are from recycled materials.  Rachel’s eco couture designs are  simply beautiful and would definitely pair well with these Beyond Skin Sui Generis vegan sandals.

I love this quote from Rachel “The only way people are going to accept eco fashion is if they’re not sacrificing anything for it…” It certainly conveys the sentiment of those of us who are pursuing fashion consciousness.

My hope is once the plethora of eco fashion options are discovered, they will become the standard and not the alternative for all.
