In a recent interview on Stylehive, CEO of Zooey, Alice Heller stated the sentiment of so many transitioning fashion brands, “Eco-friendly fashion is not about a trend, it is about changes that need to be made and the beginning of a new age in business.

De Rigeur Reusable Water Bottles
July 25, 2008 11:07 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

Honestly, the concept of disposable plastic items has got to be one of the most stupid ideas in human history. On par with nuclear energy, disposable plastics are made for a one-time use, then end up as toxic waste that lasts almost forever. It’s “convenient” and cheap in the short term, and polluting and cancer-causing in the not-so-short term. A shocking factoid: Americans use 2.5 million bottles every hour. Oh my.

Act Local, Vote Global
May 29, 2008 08:59 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

As Hillary, Barack, and John pose for cameras, raise more cash and try to convince the disenchanted citizens of America to vote for them, eco fashion is taking its own stance. It seems, sadly, that none of the three candidates seem like they have their environmental positioning totally on point. McCain seems to think nuclear energy is the most viable strategy for fulfilling our growing energy demands-darn that toxic nuclear waste with a million year half life!

May 28, 2008 08:54 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

The dope sneakers for the hipsters down in Brazilia are these organic cotton sneaks from Veja. Veja means “Look!” in Portuguese and these fly kicks sure do make you wanna do just that. The soles are made from natural rubber sourced from the Amazon rainforest. When Amazonians can make a livable wage by harvesting goods from the forest, they are much less likely to sell the entire trees for a one time profit.

American Apparel Finally Comes Clean(er)
May 9, 2008 09:05 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

American Apparel, a company well known for sexual harassment suits, scandalous barely legal marketing imagery, and de rigeur retro basics, is quietly known among environmentalists for something different…setting the bar for fair wages in manufacturing and incorporating solid steps towards environmental sustainability. Now clearly, a manufacturing behemoth is going to have a tough time calling itself “sustainable,” but American Apparel doesn’t even try. They do. Since 2006, 20% of their electricity for their factory in downtown LA is produced by solar energy, there’s recycled content in their shopping bags, and a majority of their manufacturing scraps get reclaimed for the making of their smaller items, like thongs and such.

It is with a heavy heart (though FAR from a discouraged one) that I share with you, and I am sure I am not the first, that Nau, Portland based sustainable retailer, announced on Friday, May 2nd, just 14 months after launching the business, that they will be ceasing operations. Read below for more details from the Oregonian.
