Water has a lot more to do with fashion than just bikinis and doing laundry. It takes 2900 gallons of water to grow enough cotton for one pair of jeans! So, here’s a good question: water covers 70% of our planet but how much of that water is drinkable and accessible?

Market environmentalism holds some truism. Because consumers respond more quickly, they are a more reliable force to initiate eco-conscious changes than institutions. The success of the most recent EcoChic Design Award was an encouraging example.

I have known Ivana Basilotta since the first days of ESTETHICA. Her mixture of spiritualism and fashion has always intrigued me and we totally connect on a visual level. It came as a bit of a surprise to find her in Berlin at the Show and Wear exhibition. Not only this, but also launching her high end eco range of footwear; and it's beautiful, hardly a surprise. She graciously made time for a few questions and a bit more than a sneak peek…

When I opened the package I was speechless. The shoes I had ordered from Mohop were not just an ordinary pair of sandals; they were a true work of art. In the carefully put together package I found a handwritten note, a box of lemon drops, a carrying canvas bag, a beautiful sachet containing 6 different types of ribbons, one containing 4 sets of wooden rings, 9 styling cards with visual directions for lacing patterns and then of course, the shoes themselves, beautifully sculpted out of polished walnut wood.

A New Spin on the Old Swap

Clothing swaps bring us back to a time when money wasn’t the bottom line.  If you had a plethora of chicken eggs you could trade your neighbor for a loaf of bread.  As we move forward into a more shared economy, I was curious if there was a business model that took the private swap idea into the public sphere of commerce. This is when I came across the clothing swap boutique, Give + Take in Santa Monica, California.

Sante Cosmetics: Beautiful Colors, Natural Basis

SANTE Natural Cosmetics was founded 35 years ago. Hans Hansel, who owned one of the first health food stores in Germany, was not happy with the products that were available at the time and decided, together with a few close friends, to start making their own natural cosmetics. The idea behind Sante was to offer high quality certified natural products to an audience that may otherwise choose conventional products. This idea is reflected in packaging and products. Sante also appeals to a slightly younger, more trend/fashion conscious crowd. The motivation behind the product is to offer a natural alternative that is not a compromise in terms of quality, efficacy, color, etc.

This includes items that I can quickly throw on, are comfy, help to keep me and my skin hydrated, and help me to carry things I need to take with me. The items on this list do all of this and more – they are good for me, good for the earth, and great for my hectic schedule!
