MARIE CLAIRE – Your Everything Guide to a Sustainable Closet
By Lindsay Talbot
Gone are the days of burlap sacks and tattered hand-me-downs. Dressing green is going chic.
We’ve made strides in applying environmental and ethical practices to food (organic! Non- G.M.O! Locavarism!) and beauty (all-natural! Cruelty-free! Recyclable packaging!), but when it comes to greening our wardrobes, sad hemp hippie-wear still springs to mind.
What is it? Fabric made from nylon waste (such as old fishing
nets and carpets), developed by Italian company Aquafil.
Fans: Mara Hoffman, H&M, and Speedo.
