Eco-chic for cheap

Posted on: July 9, 2009

Nadia Nour eco-friendly clothingI love eco-friendly clothing, but it’s so difficult to find stylish pieces that don’t leave you looking like a unkempt hippie.  That’s why I love the 100 percent organic clothing line by Nadia Nour, which combines style, sophistication and comfort, all while being earth-friendly.

Online dress retailer,, is now exclusively carrying Nadia Nour.   To celebrate the launch of the collection, will be offering 50 percent off NEW styles from Friday, July 10th – July 31.   So now you can get a fabulous cocktail dress and save the environment at the same time…proving you really are supergirl!

Each piece is made with organic and vintage materials, produced locally in New York’s garment district. Nadia’s love of dresses and skirts is apparent in her collection. Each piece is highly stylized, structured, soft, feminine and flirty.

I’m thrilled to see more choices for people looking for sustainable choices. I do hope that looks more closely at the overall environmental impact of some of the fabrics in their inventory. For example, in order for most bamboo to go from a tough stalk to a soft thread, extremely harsh chemicals are required. Then there’s organic cotton, which, as with all cotton, takes a lot of water (and China is suffering from severe drought in some areas). Then there is the cost to ship it all over to the US – and we all know about the GHG impact of shipping.
It would be great if there were more choices for eco-friendly fabrics closer to home at a competitive price. Perhaps more demand will help that equation. Either way, it’s important that consumers and companies are clear about what’s truly a sustainable fabric. There are lots of articles for folks to read and educate themselves.
