Eco-friendly Fashion

Since I've started studying Biology almost five years ago - I can feel the wrinkles creeping up - I've become increasingly aware of the environmental state of our planet. In case you didn't know, it's ridiculously alarming. Whenever I see initiatives that are concerned with environmental issues or try to create a sustainable project, I'm all ears (or eyes in this case). It won't be long before I'll star as an eco-warrior myself! ;)

So what's new in fashion world? Because above all I'm delighted when I see eco-friendly projects coming from an industry that isn't very compatible with the environment at first sight. 

Tiany Kiriloff hands out tips for second-hand shopping 

Tiany with her second-hand catch

Thousands of heavenly designer pieces await you lovelies. Miss Kiriloff has been second-hand shopping online for several years and oh boy has it paid off, literally! On the website you can find over 675.000 clothing items daily, so are you ready to dig up the designer gems? If you're not quite sure how to get started, here you can read Tiany's tips and tricks.
Buying new clothes is so old-fashioned. There are some things, however, that you better buy first-hand.

Amazonian Wild Rubber Collection

The Lily Cole collection

Deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, the first environmental issue I remember being taught. Nowadays it's still a big issue and several organisations, such as Sky Rainforest Rescue, are delivering hard work for the protection of the remaining ecosystem on a daily basis.
Since this week you can support the world's most important rainforest by buying a piece of fashionable (and sustainable!) rubber. Stylist Pick is the site to be! But which piece to buy, what would you pick?

You can never have enough jewellery, especially eco-friendly jewellery. Angelheart donates some of its annual profits to the 
Save the Rhino project. Last year more than 668 rhinos were killed in Africa, the species is getting more endangered every day. Several (Belgian) celebs were already spotted with an Angelheart necklace, will you be the next? You can find the collection in Lila Grace (Antwerp); Bleu, C'est Gris (Ghent); Bush Bazar (Hasselt),...

I hope I inspired you to do some eco-friendly shopping yourself!
