Fashion on the Cheap - Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Feel like you're getting robbed when you buy eco-clothes? Call off the fashion police, and check out these under-$50 fashion-forward finds from stores you already know, like Target. So cheap, you can make like a thug (but not dress like one).
- Black market prices. Just 'cuz you're on a budget doesn't mean the thrift store is your only cheap, eco-option. Repeat: Everything's under $50.
- Criminally cute style. New lines from H&M and Payless are way wearable.
- No eco-felonies. These clothes incorporate material such as organic cotton and vintage fabrics, averting pesticides and landfill use.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: I love the idea of organically/sustainably designed clothing, but I feel that to be truly sustainable we should use what we already have instead of making more. My advice is to hit up the thrift stores, or even your friends closets to find a cute new outfit for work or school. For years I dressed pretty much solely in hand-me-downs from my friends who just had to get the cutest, newest clothes every season- which worked out great for me because the clothes they were giving away were still in great condition and as far as I'm concerned, perfectly in fashion. ~Jen
