Eco Closet opened this past summer, rounding out a chic green shopping row in Billyburg; its next to Vaute Couture, the vegan coat store, and down the street from Bird. Run by the knowledgeable and friendly Lisa Joseph, who has an extensive background in fashion, the store carries some of my fave sustainable brands like Prairie Underground, Stewart + Brown, Ecoskin, Amour Vert, Smartglass, and Kris Nations. I had a great time shopping for a new cool striped sweater there, which had a relaxed and fun vibe.
