April 3, 2012

If you sometimes forget to recycle or occasionally indulge in a 20 minute hot shower, April is the month to redeem yourself of your eco sins. “Earth Month,” as it is lovingly known, is a time to adopt more earth-friendly habits — even if that just means buying 1 re-usable grocery tote (there are so many chic ones!) or some other piece of sustainable fashion. Rebecca Taylor is the latest designer to “go green,” with a collection of dresses made from recycled fibers, like PET bottles, that hits this month.

The limited edition 5-piece capsule collection is not just eco-friendly. Rebecca Taylor said in a statement:

We wanted to create ethereal yet bold designs that are easy to wear with a conscience

The pieces, which range from an asymmetric dress to skinny pants, are priced $135-$250 and will hit RT boutiques and select department stores in April.

SEE THE COMPLETE COLLECTION NOW

And for the eco-junkie, here’s how it work:

The recycling process turns PET bottles into quality fibers with 89% reduction in water and 67% reduction in oxygen. This also significantly reduces the amount of chemicals used, and produces a low percentage of CO2 emitted, according to the release.
