Discovering fashion and beauty products that are eco-friendly is a win-win in my book. So with Earth Day coming up next week, I've rounded up five sustainable fashion and beauty products. These eco-chic picks will have you looking your best and getting a few good karma points, all at the same time. Check them out below.
I love the color of this sweater, and as a bonus it's organic cotton. This brand, Organic by John Patrick, creates fashions that are sustainable, in turn promoting social awareness about our environment. (Organic by John Patrick crop pullover, $235)
This luxury hair oil keeps my tresses soft and shiny. Plus, Rodin products are completely chemical-free and made of essential oils derived from flowers. (RODIN by RECINE Luxury Hair Oil, $65)
A cover that protects your hot iron and the environment? Now we're talking. This piece from my own XO(eco)line of sustainable travel accessories is made from post-consumer recycled bottle fabric, helping to reduce your carbon footprint. (XO(eco) hot iron cover, $14.99)
Everyone loves a pretty pink polish. But one that's formulated without harmful ingredients is just so much better. Try this hue called Fruit Machine when you feel like painting a little eco-friendly color on your fingertips. (Butter London Nail Lacquer in Fruit Machine, $15)
The bright, punchy colors of this scarf make it perfect for summer. And I love how the manufacturer uses techniques that are socially consciousness and eco-friendly. (M. Patmos Abstract Print Pashmina, $295)
