We've all heard the term, "go green" a million times in the past few years. Although eco-friendly products have become somewhat of a trend, the truth is that purchasing products that are environmentally-safe is a smart choice that ultimately affects us all.
A few nights ago, I had the pleasure of attending a "Be EcoChic" runway fashion show at the American Museum of Natural History. The goal of the event was to educate consumers about the wide variety of fashions that are both stylish and good for the earth. We can all make a conscious effort to help preserve our world, even fashionistas!
Do you buy eco-friendly fashions? If not, would you consider it?
Here are a few pics from the show:
