It’s that time of year again; time to get your kiddos ready for school. It can be bittersweet, especially for those kids who don’t want summer to end, but why not make it fun with back to school shopping? Here are some awesome eco-fashions for your teenage boy and girl, so they can look great and support the environment all at once.
For Your Teenage Girl
Thank you Emma Watson . . .
Like most teenage girls, Emma Watson (known for playing Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” series) is an idol and most admired for her fashions. Well, Miss Watson is now creating her very own fashion line at People Tree that is 100 percent eco-friendly. The company is a pioneer in Fair Trade and takes passion in the creation of sustainable fashion.
Thanks to Watson, girls can choose from adorable tees, fun dresses, cute blouses and many other items. The actress is an avid supporter, and great role model, for young teens. This is what she had to say about her line, “I’m doing this range because I really care about fair-trade and ethical fashion…It sounds like a cliché, but we are the future. The earth is ours and will be our children’s, and I think that more than any other generation we are aware of environmental and humanitarian issues.
“That’s why it’s so great that People Tree is doing something aimed at people of my age – because we do care and we will buy with a conscience. I hope that more companies will follow People Tree’s example.”
Be sure to check out Watson’s adorable, organic fashions and let your teenage girl know how important it is to protect Mother Earth, even through clothing.
