Let’s Be Honest. I’m Not Ever Going To Be One Of Those Girls Who Wears Hemp Shoes. But I Want To Be Green AND Stylish. Any Tips?

I’m not a total monster, I like the idea of eco fashion. I’m just not so keen in practice. Even the most fashion-conscious eco brands turn me off (ok, maybe I am a bit of a monster).

Here's the fourth in a series of mini-posts we've been doing with one of our sponsors, on the things we've been talking about in the office this week.

When I was 13, I went on holiday to Cornwall, and bought a very fancy tie-dye top, with lace detailing around the bust (I had no bust, but you get the idea) and tassels on the bottom. I loved it, and wore it all the time for about two years.

And… I caught site of myself in a window one day, realised all my peers were wearing skater jeans and slogan t-shirts, and that was it. I never wore tie-dye, hemp, or henna again.

But I’m not a total monster, I like the idea of eco fashion. I’m just not so keen in practice. Even the most fashion conscious eco brands turn me off (ok, maybe I am a bit of a monster).

Any tips on how to make my wardrobe a little more green without giving up my leather handbag?
