November 9, 2015

Hi eco loves,

Bringing to you today 3 sustainable fashion looks, all featuring this amazing striped midi skirt by LA RELAXED. This skirt is made from sustainable fabrics (modal and rayon- BUTTERY soft) and was made right here in the USA in Los Angeles, California. LA RELAXED is dedicated to domestic production, using natural sustainable fabrics, and recycling and/or donating excess materials to cut down on the waste that is prevalent in the fashion industry. Check out their site www.larelaxed.com and use coupon code ASHLEYMORGANIC for 15% off your order!

ALL pieces that I am wearing in this video fall into at least one of the following categories:
• VEGAN
• SUSTAINABLE
• ORGANIC FABRICS
• MADE IN USA
• HANDMADE
• ETHICALLY PRODUCED

Outfit details below!

OUTFIT #1
Maureen Striped Midi Skirt | LA Relaxed * Made from a Modal/Rayon blend, which are SUPER soft cellulosic fabrics derived from wood pulp. These fabrics are much more sustainable versus synthetic polyester or even non-organic cotton. Here is a great article if you’re interested in reading more on the sustainability of these fabrics: http://www.yesitsorganic.com/rayon-modal-tencel-environmental-friends-or-foes.html#axzz3lzPzRpow

Vegan Leather Jacket | Blank NYC * Polyurethane shell – The only material vegan leather that I look to buy. It is the less toxic option versus PVC vegan leather and genuine leather (which is heavily chemically treated during the tanning process, and obviously not cruelty-free)

Bamboo \ Organic Cotton Tank | Be Good Clothing

Handmade Body Chain (worn as necklace) | Urban Eco Beauty

Vegan Leather Lace Ups | JustFab ** Please note: JustFab is not typically a retailer that I would support buying from. I spoke to their customer service and they confirmed that their vegan leather is made from PVC – which is known to contain hormone disrupting chemicals and is much less sustainable than vegan PU leather. I learned this info AFTER I had already owned shoes from them (these included) – so although they are vegan, they are definitely not sustainable or ethically produced. I cancelled my account and will not buy from them in the future, but I continue to wear the pairs that I already own.
