Pearly Whites

Every fashion forward girl or boy should have clean, beautiful teeth! Preserve is a company that believes in "Nothing wasted. Everything gained." They create home and personal care products from recycled products. I use their toothbrushes, made from 100% recycled plastic including yogurt cups. Each Toothbrush comes in a travel container made from recycled plastic. And the best part is you can "send the toothbrush and case back to Preserve using our postage-paid label to be re-processed into plastic lumber for picnic tables, boardwalks and decks." Get to Brushing!

The Slow Bicycle Movement

The Slow Bicycle Movement celebrates the use of the bicycle as a "normal" mode of transportation to get to work, school, the movies, the mall, the market, etc. They have a facebook and a blog encouraging people to ride their bikes and enjoy the view of the world around them. This movement is in connection with other slow movements including (but not excluding) Slow Food, Slow Company, and Slow Retail. If you want to read more about The Slow Movement check out The World Institute of Slowness. I was browsing around the Slow Bicycle Movement's blog and found some really cute merch. This was my favorite:

Front and back of a very cute tote for carrying grocerys or books!

A Peace Treaty

I found this amazing company, A Peace Treaty on my friend Eric's Facebook (he modeled for them). A Pakistani Muslim and a Libyan Jew created an accessory company to create employment "for skilled artisans in places of socio-political strife." The company also donates to Counterpart International, an organization that helps bring medical supplies to Dafur. Here are some of my favorites from the 2008 collection, And they are having a SALE!:
Borderlines Yellow (It's Eric!)
Let's get wrapped (so cheesy I know)!

Stella Goes Vegan

Stella McCartney sent vegan legging boots down the runway for her fall 2009 RTW collection! It is exciting to see vegan footwear options showing up in major runway shows. I think this bodes well for those of us in search of animal friendly shoes that are fashion forward. Even though legging boots are not quite my thing I love the collection, especially the divine over-sized blazers with drop lapels! Tell me what you think.

"Green is the New Black"

This article (it's short) from the Huffington Post gives us all more reasons to shop vintage. I hope this inspires you all to go out and discover vintage shops in your area. If you would rather look online try Ebay or Goodluck!
