Comfy, Sassy and Eco-Friendly?

Finally! One of Vancouver’s best kept secrets has come out of hiding. Eco-friendly and cost affordable clothing companies for non-yoga/outdoorsy types does exist! and even better, it’s local!

Lav and Kush designer/ president Angela Saxena is deeply devoted to helping the environment while designing pieces that compliment the female form. Doing what they can to lessen their impact on the environment, Lav and Kush choose their fabrics carefully, primarily using fabrics such as bamboo, soy, hemp and organic cotton and are also members of environmental groups such as PETA. All the while, with a passion for fashion, their line features sassy and sexy pieces with plunging necklines, flirty ruffles, and form-fitting wraps. Even T-shirts are strategically designed to hide any “food babies” on those bloated days! Available all over North America, you can pick up Lav and Kush at Vancouver shops such as Life of Riley, Nimama Maternity, Barefoot Contessa, and others.

Not to leave out the opposite sex, another eco-friendly company known as Twice Shy designs clothing for both men and women. Experiencing the dilemma of not being able to find trendy and organic clothing, founders Jen McCormack and Michael Ziff created Twice Shy. With a strong dedication to helping the environment and having fun doing it, Twice Shy has grown exponentially over the years and have recently expanded their line to include Fig, an organic line for kids. Twice Shy and Fig are reasonably priced and can be found in numerous shops around the city. Twigg and Hottie, Belly and Beyond, and Riot are a few places that you can find these great lines.

    Great write up, you guys! One of the things that we lack in is fresh recycled clothing! I have a few write-ups about that on my blog, particularly from my coverage of EPIC 2008.

    Awesome to hear you highlight this kind of important eco-friendly clothing stuff!

  2. Hi there friends, how is everything, and
    what you would like to say concerning this post, in my view its actually awesome
    in support of me.

  3. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
