You can’t spell ‘cool’ without ‘CO’, and if you add an ‘E’ to that, you get ‘ECO’. Still with us? Today is World Environment Day – WED. When we think of eco-fashion, we tend to think hemp, burlap and Birkenstocks. But eco doesn’t have to mean ugly. Here are some eco-friendly pieces we’d wear to show our support for World Environment Day. Save the planet, look good doing it. Happy WED!
