Spring is finally here (well, sort of!), and so I thought it would be fun to show my three fave ethical accessories as modeled by some of our Marie Claire editors.
Here's MC Style and Accessories Director Taylor Tomasi Hill modeling four specs from eyewear brand Warby Parker. For every pair you buy, WP delivers a pair of glasses to someone in need. Oh, and they only cost $95!
MC Associate Market Editor Abby Kalicka is seen here sporting an over-sized clutch by environmentally-minded brand Osklen. The purse is made from Pirarucu leather, which is classified as an e-fabric because, while it was once traditionally discarded (generating organic waste in the Amazon), Osklen now uses the skin in many of its accessories. The leather is also processed in a tannery that uses green methods and helps support the local community by providing jobs.
Out of modesty, this editor chooses to remain nameless. That said, she loves these Terra Plana flats because they're comfortable, colorful, and eco-conscious! Terra Plana uses recycled materials such as recycled plastic bottles (PET), and they vegetable-tan their leather (reducing the amount of toxins usually used), and they use 100 percent organic canvases from sustainable sources.
So, add a little color and sustainability to your wardrobe this season, and pick up these products!
