If you find any more environmentally friendly styles that you'd like to see on my blog, let me know. Since "green" fashion is such a big thing right now, you should be able to walk into almost any clothing store near you and find something "green" to satisfy your needs. However, if this isn't the case, you can try searching for eco-friendly items on any of the websites I've suggested above or look on websites for other clothing stores you know of. Just type words like "organic" or "recycle" into the site's search engine and results should pop up. Before I end this post, I would like to thank my friend CMarie for suggesting that I write about this topic. It was a wonderful idea and I'm happy to be featuring eco-friendly fashions in my blog, even post-Earth Day. So thank you CMarie! If anyone else has more suggestions for fashion topics, let me know by e-mailing me at Charmed42787@gmail.com or sending me a message on myspace. So happy shopping! And remember, just because Earth Day is over doesn't mean we should stop doing what we can to make this planet a better place to live!

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.
