Eco-Friendly Food & Fashion
Apr 13, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
After spending the afternoon at the Green Products Expo at the Hyatt at Grand Central Station, my mind is reeling with eco friendliness. Organic this! Gluten-free that! Antioxidants in everything! All of the green foods we tasted today have seeped into the fashion conscious. Thus, we bring you three sustainable looks to match super eco foods.
I screamed for Ginger Cookie Caramel. Literally, it was that bangin'. It's by Coconut Bliss, a completely vegan breed of ice cream made from, well, coconut milk. It reminded me of the environmental goodness of Stewart+Brown. With the cardigan made of 96% hemp, and the blouse of organic cotton, it's good on the earth. Like ice coco-cream.
This Organic by John Patrick flounce top has the essence of the über healthy Quinoa. The protein quinoa supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids and can even cure migraines. The shirt and the grain together are unstoppable goodness.
Diaya is the most cheese-like non-cheese on the market right now. And its off-white shreddedness kind of reminds me of this top by Dress Reform. The boat neck fringe top is made of 100% organic cotton, and the "cheese" is 100% dairy, lactose, casein, gluten, soy and cholesterol free. Everybody wins!
