At last, there are now some eco-friendly clothes available for plus-sized people, and we think it’s about time this came out. Most eco-friendly clothes are usually designed for and modeled by slim people, so this is definitely a refreshing change–it’s not only the skinny who are capable of having eco-friendly lifestyles after all. Eco-fashion boutique Faeries Dance now has a Plus-Sized department, making green and stylish clothing available for everyone. The clothes are made by Goddess Gear, which specializes in creating clothing out of natural fabrics such as hemp, organic linen, and recycled cotton, and they’re all produced in Denver, Colorado.
Not everyone is aware that Washington, D.C. has its own Fashion Week and that it’s currently ongoing. September 19 was the date of the event’s eco-fashion show, but today, people can also get a chance to see another eco-fashion show, “Fashion to Fight Childhood Cancer“, which will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight at Beauty 360 on 1350 Connecticut Ave NW Washington, D.C. 20036.

We’re huge fans of Colin Firth here, so you can imagine how thrilled we were that he bagged the Best Actor trophy at the Oscars last night. Here’s something else to celebrate: He was wearing a Tom Ford suit that was made out of “ethical materials,” as Contact Music reports. His wife Livia was likewise clad in a green outfit–a gown recycled from old dresses.
The company has also teamed up with Swedish Hasbeens so you can dress green from head to toe.
The new line will be launched on April 14.

Running is a cheap and easy way for people to lose weight and improve their health; the only problem is getting started and staying motivated. The best part is you can’t really hurt the planet while you’re pounding the pavement, but it would be great if you’r e still using some environmentally friendly gear. The mi-bra, made of 90%organic cotton, is definitely something that would make a brilliant addition to your closet. A fun little bonus of the mi-bra? A handy little pocket which is big enough for your iPod, your keys, or some extra cash.
