Eco fashion is no longer an oxymoron. Gone are the days of scratchy hemp, unflattering fits, and everything beige. Today's eco or sustainable fashions have both style and a social conscience.
In honour of Earth Day let's celebrate some of Canada's eco fashion industry leaders who are doing their part to save the earth, all while making us look oh-so-good.

Sustainability isn't just taking over the fashion design world, but the publishing world as well. More and more fashion magazines are focusing on eco fashion, some even devoting all of their column inches to sustainable style. Ottawa's Ef Magazine is one such publication that shines the spotlight on eco designers and boutiques whose goals are to go green with style.
Sustainable fashion isn't a trend; it's not in one day and out the next. Sustainable fashion is part of a growing philosophy the goal of which is to promote environmentalism, social responsibility, and reducing the carbon footprint. Something we should all be thinking about every day.
So, grab your favourite piece of bamboo clothing, your reusable water bottle, and let's celebrate Earth Day; because, there's nothing more stylish than sustainability.
