Sustainable style is not a trend. In the past seven years where I've been watching fashion closely, from H&M to the proliferation of local design, more and more companies incorporate sustainability into their business models. This week's project was to bring the movement to our blogs… what is sustainable fashion? What does it mean to the fashion blogging community. Many of the submissions shared clever ways to bring sustainability home, from DIY, to wearing your clothes longer, and of course highlighting ec0-friendly designers who are both local and luxury.
Earth Day is on Monday, so check them out, perhaps you'll get inspired! And also check out our Sustainable Style Pinterest board for this project!

High-end fashion designers and popular clothing brands introduce eco-friendly fibres into their garments and amazing organizations working to increase opportunities for eco-conscious designers there is an abundance of fabulous earth-friendly fashions to choose from.
There are also clothes that I wear until they die, that can be 15 years or obviously over, and when they are full of holes and beyond repair, the fabric can be recycled.
Includes just a few facts about the effects our beloved fashion industry has on our (hopefully) even more beloved planet.
