Ecofashion in E Magazine

This gorgeous image was shot by Eric Striffler at solar-powered, carbon-free Project Greenhouse, Long Island, NY with clothes by naturevsfuture.

This month’s issue of E Magazine includes a feature on all things ecofashion, so if you have any lingering questions about why you should care about the fabrics you wear on your body every day, check it out!


There’s an overview of the ecofashion revolution featuring interviews with some of my favorite designers like Carol Young and Bahar Shaphar, and ecofashion blogger and designer Jill Danyelle. There’s a sidebar on creative recycling of odd stuff into accessories, and an in-depth look at the lives of the people who grow cotton outside the US, and what they stand to gain (and lose) by growing the stuff.
