Now that the weather is warming up in the East Coast (yah! and finally!) we’re keeping our eyes on this Jonano Trench Coat for those rainy spring days. Made from hemp denim, this belted trench rocks in a glamorous way. Jonano puts an eco twist on this classic by using a hemp organic cotton dark wash structured denim with rugged “branch of peace” military button detailing. Stylish and sophisticated! Check out the eco deets …

Deals for the Eco-Minded

Brianne

Deal sites like Groupon and Living Social are great for exploring your city on a budget.  We’ve signed up for everything from photography classes to buying a mini-freezer’s worth of Let’s Be Frank hotdogs. Occasionally we’ve even come across an organic spa deal or a natural foods grocery store discount – but they alone weren’t enough to satisfy our green needs. We secretly hoped for a deals site that took into account our pocketbooks along with people and the planet.

Well, two gradates from the University of Southern California must have heard our prayers. Roozt.com, which defines itself as “the hatchery for responsible shopping,” is the perfect deal site alternative for the Greenista crowd. With offers that let you save up to 80 percent on three deals per week (sent via email, like the other popular sites), you can indulge in organic chocolate or buy sunglasses for a cause with the knowledge that your purchase is supporting an environmentally and socially-responsible enterprise.  In addition, 1 percent of everything purchased on Roozt.com is donated to the nonprofit of your choice.

One of Greenista Girl Sasha’s favorite purchases from Roozt.com was a fair-trade bamboo and eco-friendly dyed scarf made by a group of Nepalese women who receive sustainable income, healthcare, and education with each sale. The scarf is soft and beautiful – and she’s received many compliments when she wears it! So when you’re pulling out your credit card to take advantage of the next deal, know that with Roozt.com you’ll be a conscious consumer every time.

Holiday Gift List: moreTrees Tees

Greenista Girl Neha

Chances are your Christmas tree is already up so try saving a different tree with moreTrees street wear clothing. Shop graphic tees, hoodies, skirts, pants, and jackets for women, men, and babies. All the tees have an eco message like polar bears, trees, watering cans, flying birds, and more. We’re eyeing the Plum Tree tee and the Sweetest Sweats yoga pants. Their line is made with blends of organic cotton, hemp, and recycled PET (recycled soda bottles) and everything is made right here in the USA.  They have also given away over 500 baby trees, produce videos about guerilla urban gardening, and plant trees with Nobel Peace Prize Winner Wangari Maathaï’s Greenbelt Movement to help make the whole process sustainable.

Halloween Week: Eco & Vintage Halloween Costumes

Greenista Girl Neha

Ghosts, goblins, and dress up time! If you’re like us Greenista Girls, you live for Halloween. The candy, the fall weather, the scary movies, the costumes … the list goes on and on. However, most Halloween costumes are made from synthetic (read: chem-laden) fabric … and not to mention the toxic face paints. We’ll show you how to go green this Halloween.

Hit up your favorite vintage store for hippy, cow girl, prom queen, or even Lady Gaga or The Real Housewives-inspired duds.

Look around your house for items that you can turn into your Halloween costume. A sheet for a Greek Goddess toga, an apron for a Top Chef, and an all black long-sleeve and leggings is the start for any great animal … cat, skunk, dog, bat. PS: trash bags = bat wings.

Crafty? Make your own from scratch using organic fabric, bamboo, hemp, and other eco materials.

Share! Borrow your besties costume from last year and lend her yours. Or a week before Halloween, toss a costume exchange party. Bring one, leave with another.

Use Nova Natural Face Pencils. They are non-toxic and made from palm oil. They are super easy to apply and wash off. Just think of all the blood, bruises, and oozes you can create.

PS: Those gals are the LEED Green Building Fairies, who won Inhabitat’s Green Halloween Contest last year. How cute!
