Style & Beauty

From sustainable fabrics made from hemp, bamboo and organic cotton to shoes made from post-consumer recyclables, LuxEco Style explores the quickly evolving world of fashion and design. The next vanguard in fashion is being pioneered by innovative designers around the globe who are looking for eco-friendly solutions that care for the planet yet never sacrifice design aesthetics. Mindful of the pesticides, chemical dyes, VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), synthetic fibers and plasticizers, eco designers embrace the connection between people, their garments and the environment. Furthermore, production ethics are paramount as eco designers consider their carbon footprint with local production and employ fair trade practices. (You won’t find any sweatshops here!)

Beyond the clothes, shoes and accessories that make up your wardrobe, LuxEco Style will look at the other personal care products men and women dress themselves with on a daily basis. Sadly, many conventional products use toxic and suspected and proven carcinogenic ingredients and the industry goes unregulated. LuxEco Style will keep tabs on these offenders and provide wonderful and luxurious green alternatives.

What it boils down to is good old fashion recycling.
