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.

Fashion Styles Recycled

By Dow-Yung Kou, LuxEco Editorial Assistant Vintage is a very affordable eco-alternative, because it is giving clothes a second life, while reducing the amount of waste both during production and post-consumption. What it boils down to is good old fashion recycling. An average American throws out 65 pounds of clothing a year, and cumulatively as a country we add 11.8 million tons of clothes to landfills a year.

Circa AdVintage: A New Way To Shop Green

By Nancy Chuda, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of LuxEcoLiving and Healthy Child Healthy World I took a break over the holidays and went to Florida to visit family and friends. I packed light. And I was glad I did, having discovered a true treasure: A prestigious consignment store called Circa Vintage in Tequesta, Florida (near Jupiter) in The Village Shops on U.S. Highway 1. It’s an upscale, glamorous consignment boutique of current designer and vintage fashions – and shoppers are flocking to it! If you’re in the area you won't want miss it. Fortunately, you don't have to fly all the way to Jupiter -- you can shop here online. Owner Carol Wright was just twelve when she recognized that collecting old dresses could someday bring in green – which in the world of high-end vintage means big money.
