Eco Chicks in Shape Magazine!


Eco Chick is really happy to be a part of Shape Magazine’s April, 2007 Green-theme issue. Check out page 44, where Summer, Kim and I are featured in the section ‘Why I Went Green,’ a three-page spread that includes the likes of Amber Valetta, Laurie David, Daryl Hannah, Kerry Washington, Amy Brenneman, and other women describing what spurred them to put the environment front and center in their lifestyles. Thank you Shape!


The rest of the mag is worth picking up; while not every article has a green focus, there are a few major pieces (It is easy being green; an a-z primer guide, a pretty piece on organic bath and beauty products) and quite a few smaller pieces (one on organic wine, a green outdoor gear round-up, and some cute Spring fashion essentials). Being Shape, there’s also lots of great workout tips and healthy-eating plans.
