YOOX's New Eco-Shop Helps Green Up The Fashionable Set
April 19, 2009
Earth Day is right around the corner, and everyone's going (even more) green. Online fashion mecca YOOX made itself part of the green scene this week, launching YOOXYGEN, an eco-friendly initiative aimed at raising environmental awareness by putting green designers, artists, and organizations in the spotlight.
Click on through to the ECO-mmerce section to find shoes, jewelry, handbags, and clothes designed with the Earth in mind.
These Momaboma bags ($158) are made out of everything from cheeky vintage mags to discarded homework and vinyl records.
This wooden bracelet from Caboclo ($55) infuses nature into every outfit you pair it with. And each piece of the jewelry is handcrafted by natives of the Brazilian rainforests.
Stella McCartney's clothes and accessories totally dominate YOOXYGEN's page. And why not? These sandals ($280) are designed using alternative materials like plastic, vinyl, and cork to ensure a completely cruelty-free line.
