For the last year we have been hosting our late night shop hour on Twitter every Monday - Thursday at 9pm PST with #ShopLu. After creating the Sustainable Fashion Facebook group we began to ask ourselves how we can further align our programming with our commitment to living well curated lives. We are happy to say that from now on all #ShopLu mentions will be brands who have incorporated sustainable practices into their business models.
This change stems from a commitment to living consciously. After attending a viewing party of True Costs in Sacramento. I felt moved to give people more access to quality brands with strong voices and sometime little reach. Behind most sustainable brands are genius artists, activists and communities starting a conversation we want to be a part of.
To kick everything off here are this week’s Sustainable Finds:
