"Fashion is as profound and critical a part of the social life of people as sex, and is made up of the same ambivalent mixture of irresistible urges and inevitable taboos” - Rene Konig

Green Week Finale - Eco-Living

What a week! I've talked about anything and everything on eco-products. From cosmetics to shoes, we have learned about the importance of saving the planet using products that are made in a sustainable way. To wrap up Green Week I'll bring you Eco-Living. Eco-Living is more than the ever growing trend we have been seeing lately is a way of life, a philosophy, and it seems that more and more people are getting into it. Who doesn't know about the now infamous "I'M-NOT-A-PLASTIC-BAG" bag? It can be said, arguably, that that was the bag that started it all! Now accessories house Hayden-Harnett came up with an eco-bag to support politician turned environmentalist Al Gore. The bag was inspired by Gore's documentary on global warming "An Inconvenient Truth", and the proceeds go to help environmental causes. Even big companies, like uber-chic retail store Barneys, came up now with their own line of eco-clothing. Barneys Green, a line of eco-sportswear, will continue to develop the line with collaboration of guest designers. Hot Topics is stocking in Zoe Tees made with earth-friendly fabrics. Also kudos to jeweler John Hardy who's very much involved in a bamboo reforestation project, sustainable workshops and even a complex of green villas to be built at his property. How visionary is that?! So to help you jump in the green van wagon in style here's the latest you can find in green living, from clothing to home-decor. Have a happy earth, have a happy heart.

GE Energy Smart <span class=
GE Energy Smart CFL Lightbulb 13 Watts (60 watts equivalent) 12 pk $19.76. Available at www.walmart.com

These bulbs use 2/3 less energy, generate 70% less heat and if every home in America replace just one bulb we will save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a whole year and prevent green house gases equivalent to 800,000 cars!

Now the light bulbs contain mercury which can be harmful but only if you break them. Although the bulbs are quite sturdy, just to play it safe, DON'T BREAK THEM!

Now there you have it everybody. This was Green Week a small effort to help create a conscience on the need to save the planet. I hope I'd touch someone. I hope I'd at least get someone curious about what's going on so they can dig and ask and find out by themselves and hopefully they will want to do something. It can be done, you don't have to do everything just whatever you can, that's all. Even if it's just changing ONE light bulb.

Have a happy earth, have a happy heart!
