Who What Wear just did a beauty post highlighting pretty green nails for fall. They listed several different brands of nail polish in varied shades of green. There were some great brands on the list including OPI and Chanel. Sadly, there were no Eco-friendly suggestions. But, have no fear, I have found several shimmering (and matte) shades from mint to neon green. My personal favorite is a pretty shade of icy mint from SpaRitual called Delight. I discussed this company in an earlier post because they carry nail polishes that are vegan, DBP, formaldehyde and toluene free and the glass bottles are made of 50% recycled materials. Another great choice is a vegan, water based nail polish from Suncoat called Apple Green (#21). No Miss also has a sparkly shade called Jenson Beach Jade which is Vegan, and does not contain, formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl-pthalate or camphor. What a perfect way to go green!

Samsung and service provider Sprint have released a new smart phone called the Reclaim. It is made from 80% recyclable materials and for every phone purchased a donation will be made to the Nature Conservancy's Adopt an Acre Program. It comes in two pretty colors: Earth Green and Ocean Blue and from what I have read has pretty good consumer reviews. There are also several eco-friendly applications available on the phone (although I am not quite sure what that means). If any of you have this phone, I would love to know what you think of it! Let's get to talking!

TOMS Shoe Company just created a new style with laces! They include a more supportive insole and stronger outsole and look like super cute, casual oxfords! These cuties can be worn with or without the laces and are a fantastic alternative to sneakers. The shoes come in three different colors for women and men. This new style is called Cordones and if you buy a pair they will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need. I can't wait to order my pair in natural canvas with brown leather detailing. Start shopping!
