Guess what, everyone? It’s time to celebrate Earth Day! Aside from planting a tree or participating in a beach clean-up, you can help honor our dear Mother Earth by doing something as simple as taking a closer look at your own closet. By supporting designers who have made a commitment to making ecologically-friendly apparel and home goods that use sustainable packaging and eco-conscious ingredients, we are participating in the creation of a more mindful society that will only help our beautiful blue planet. Take a look at these awesome eco-friendly items that definitely won’t make you feel bad about purchasing! Shopping without any added guilt? Sign me up!

Red Prairie Press not only makes cozy clothes with cute designs, but their apparel is sweatshop-free and hand-printed in the USA using water-based, non-toxic inks. This adorable Lotus Flower dress is made with hemp and organic cotton.

That bottle of water that you just threw in the blue bin might someday become something to lay your weary head on. How, you ask? This not-so-subtle “Let’s Make Out” pillow was made using recycled felt, which is constructed by using melted down plastic bottles. Mind. Blown.

I love a good scented candle and I love it even more when it’s not made with nasty chemicals! These candles are made with 100% non-GMO natural vegetable waxes. There’s also no petroleum, paraffin or synthetic dyes.

Even your jewelry can be eco-friendly! This statement necklace was made with reclaimed wood.

Honor the moon with this darling crescent-shaped ring. This gorgeous piece of jewelry is made in California, using reclaimed sterling silver.

Jot down all your notes in this rad notebook, made from recycled vinyl and acid-free, recycled paper. And when you run out of pages, you can easily refill it! There’s plenty of designs to choose from, but I’m particularly fond of this ’60s Japanese pop-themed one.
