Before you think I'm jumping on the sustainable clothing/environmentally-friendly bandwagon just because it's fashionable, let me whip out my green credentials.
Hanging on the wall in the Pool Room of my parent's house is my framed and faded degree from Griffith Uni. It's from their School of Australian Environmental Studies and dates back to the 1980's. Yep, I was a greenie before some of you were even born!
I've fallen off the green bandwagon a few times over the years, but you don't have to be a hippy-loving, cause-fighting, non-leather shoe-wearing, organic-eating, kombi-van-touring, do-gooder to be green. Just do the little things that you can.
I'd like to learn how to make my wardrobe a bit greener, so I've hunted down some background reading to get ideas. Sifted through some very dull tomes, but found a few gems like these two easy reads. Source them at amazon.com or put them on hold at your local library.
Summer Rayne Oakes - Style, Naturally. One-stop resource for all things green. Great profiles on ethical fashion design labels.
Plus out of Brisbane, Peppermint, a new eco-fashion magazine to hunt down... Happy reading!
