I won’t lie- I’ve found myself digging through H&M‘s racks of trendy-at-this-moment garments on more than one occasion. Sometimes the allure of inexpensive wardrobe supplements is more than my usually eco-conscious self can take. It’s a delicate balance for those of us who care about being fashionable, but care equally as much about what it’s made of and where it was made.
Thank ye fashion gods, environmentally preferable clothing is easier than ever to come by, and major retailers are joining exclusive boutiques in offering organic clothing options. If you’re like me, and can’t fit that new Linda Loudermilk piece (Love it. Can’t afford it.) in your budget, console yourself with the thought that you can head down to H&M and check out their newly expanded sustainable wares.
For their Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 line, H&M will expand their organic cotton collection by adding organic and recycled wool and polyester (can you imagine H&M be without polyester?) to all departments.
So, if you can’t justify blowing your budget on Stewart+Brown‘s racerback jumper, check out your local H&M. If you’re lucky, you might even find some organic cotton scarves and other accessories!
