This reusable water bottle has a print that will suit anyone and everyone on your list! Layna’s Pick : Super Nova or Black.
VERTICAL WALL PLANTER
I have loved these leggings (+ their fit!!) ever since I found them. Best part, they’re eco-conscious — “Made from fabric that is spun fibers made out of recycled water bottles, then cut, printed and hand-sewn with love using only environmentally friendly practices. Teeki manufactures everything in the US, providing jobs for our country and reducing our carbon footprint”. Layna’s pick : All of them. But my favorite that I own : Deer Medicine Charcol Hot Pant! (The first shown below).
I have been talking about Slow Factory for a while now — I am particularly fond of them because 1: They use images from NASA (I’m a HUGE astronomy nerd) as prints for their pieces. 2: I got to hear the CEO speak at FIT this past Fall. 3: Look how cute THIS skinny scarf is…
Celine Semaan Vernon’s talk really opened my eyes to the very serious issue of waste/lack of sustainability in the fashion industry. While I know no one is cutting out stores like H&M, ZARA, etc.. cold turkey, I think it is very important to buy sustainable pieces when possible. Also, quality vs. quantity — these pieces made properly will outlive ALL poorly and unethically made pieces. #rantover
