There are a lot of sites out there that sell green products, but few of them can match the style and quality you’ll find at Gretchen & Grace Greenwear. If you’re an eco-fashionista (or like me, learning to be), you’ll appreciate the healthy selection of offerings from sustainable designers like EcoSkin, Loomstate and Ideo.
And these clothes aren’t just sustainable. They’re drop dead gorgeous. They’re the types of designs you’d see on a model. I’m not just talking clothes. I’m talking jewelry, bath products and accessories too (recycled rubber handbag, anyone?) And like all quality eco-fashion, some of it comes at a price. But there are some great deals to be found at Gretchen & Grace, particularly in the “Eco Looks for Less” and sale sections. Some of my favorite looks are shown below. From left: the EcoSkin Sassafras dress, $99; Double Feather Hoop Earrings made of recycled silver, $39; and the Ideo Mali top, $39.40.
If you have a budding fashionista in your family, you’ll be happy to learn that stylish, green gear for girls is available as well. The team at Gretchen & Grace was kind enough to send me the Kate Quinn Organics Printed Halter Dress to review. As you can see in the photo above, my daughter was in her glee about having a pretty new dress to wear. She’s definitely a girly girl, and she jumps at any opportunity to get dressed up, literally.
My taste is a little bit more discerning. I’ve been trying harder and harder to buy clothes for her that are local and/or sustainably made. The Kate Quinn line definitely qualifies, and I’m happy to see that Gretchen & Grace has a huge selection not just from Kate Quinn, but from brands like barley & birch and Tiny Revolutionary.
Suffice it to say I’ve definitely bookmarked this store for future green shopping jaunts. I’ll try my best only to do this when I need something, of course. I’m always a fan of stores that offer green gear at great prices.
