Sustainable fashion


View larger image

Caught sustainable fashionista Summer Rayne Oakes on Living on Earth this morning. A Cornell graduate in Natural Resources and Entomology, with a specialty in sludge, as well as a fashion model, Summer is concerned about the toxins that are released into the environment by the textile industry. She believes that sustainable fashion, like organic food, is the wave of the future.

Take a peek at the Ethical Fashion Show. Runways are a kick.

While exploring the sustainable goods world, I found . Green Dimes where, for $36, you can eliminate, or at least pare down your junk mail, (which, for me, often includes clothing catalogs} and have trees planted in their stead.

Photo note: A wildly mistaken view of sustainable fashion as shot on Newbury Street.

Addendum: As soon as we noted that sustainable fashion was going to be the new organic food, what should appear on the market but green jeans
