Calling all eco-fashionistas, aspiring sustainable designers and DIY gurus, here is your time to shine! Greenloop, together with Barbra Horowitz, is sponsoring our first ever T-Shirt Cutting Contest. What is a t-shirt cutting contest you ask? Barbara, who authored the recently released book Closet Control, is a guru of personal style, and her specialty is giving what is already in your closet a make-over…a snip here, a tie there, a slash over there and voila, you have an entirely new, updated look.

Swap-o-rama-rama: Making A Difference
April 22, 2008 08:29 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

In honor of Earth Day 2008, Greenloop begged the question of eco fashion: Are we making a difference? This series continues with this response from Wendy Tremayne, creator of Swap-O-Rama-Rama(who we featured in an earlier article on In The Loop dedicated to greening your closet). Swap-o-rama-rama is a traveling clothing swap and do-it-yourself workshop in which various communities explore creative reuse through by turning their old used clothing into fabulous new creations. Wendy is of course a champion of DIY culture and these are excerpts from the insightful thoughts she wanted to share for Earth Day 2008

Eco Fashion: Are We Making A Difference?
April 16, 2008 08:39 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

I just wanted to take a moment to check in with you. Yes, you, the readers of this blog who represent a good slice of the eco fashion heads in the United States. I imagine you not only read In The Loop, you are in the loop on greener garment trends. Some maunfacturers like Natural High Lifestyle and Patagonia, as well as customers of hemp designs and vintage clothing stores, have been leading the eco fashion pack for at a decade or more. Most of the sustainable fashion designers and junkies in the U.S. just realized very recently what a huge impact the clothing industry has on the world at large.

High On Green (Shoes)
April 9, 2008 09:19 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

Well eco fashionistas of the world, it’s true-eco-friendly high heels are still few and far between. Greenloop has pulled together the most gorgeous high heels for Spring…we wish there could be more, but I guess we’ll have to wait for Spring ‘09 for the green wave to take over the women’s shoe industry.

Denim Being Recycled in Earnest
April 8, 2008 09:34 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

This week, US jeans labels the National Jean Company and Earnest Sewn will host a fashion to kick off a five day charity initiative which will result in old denim clothes being recycled into cotton insulation. The fashion show will take place at Slate Lounge in New York where entry to the show will require the donation of an old pair of jeans. Consumers will also be able to donate denim clothes at the National Jean Company’s New York stores from 8 – 13 April.

Billboards Never Looked So Good
March 21, 2008 10:45 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

One medium that lends itself well to the use of discarded materials are bags - handbags, totes, backpacks, attache bags, wallets. I have seen an incredible array of bags made entirely from, or at least incorporating trash, or what would one day surely be bound for landfill but for this creative re-fabrication. Some of my favorites are one of a kind, few of a kind or one-of-a-kind pieces. Lately, billboards have been getting a lot of mileage in the eco-accessories world.

Surfer Tested, Mother Earth Approved
March 13, 2008 09:27 AM - Jenn Breckenridge, Greenloop Fashions

Surfers are at the mercy of two of nature’s greatest forces: wind and water. Cliff Drill,”El Presidente” of Splaff Flopps, is at the mercy of very little, sans his supply of recycled foam and old drag racing tires. This Jersey native has transplanted himself to San Diego, one of the world’s most consistently gorgeous climates, in order to ride waves, hang with his homies, and make the most righteous eco-conscious flip-flops. Period.

Vote With Your Heart
February 5, 2008 10:18 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

Hillary, Barack, Mitt, or John? We’re not picking our favorite Beatle this time, my friends. No, this time we’re choosing one fine specimen to lead our country into 2012 (lord help us.) While this eco fashion news site will not be endorsing any particular candidates publicly, we would like bring you the most up-to-date fashion statements for the electoral season, like The Vote Shirt by Be Present. The Men’s and Women’s short sleeve tees are organic cotton, with an organic tank top soon to hit the streets (of cyberspace.)

Giving: It's The New Getting at Sundance
January 29, 2008 12:12 PM - , Greenloop Fashions

Appropriately dubbed "Hollywood's Winter Spring Break," thousands of Angelenos et. al., head to Park City, Utah year after year to don their designer snow gear, watch a few films, and party righteously. This chilly celebresnownfilmfest is known as Sundance. It's not exactly the place that most people traditionally think of as a haven of environmental awareness...until now.

Global Cool: Snowboarders Gear Up Green
January 25, 2008 09:25 AM - , Greenloop Fashions

The epitome of cool in snow season is of course, snowboarding. And the biggest requirement for this most righteous winter pastime is of course, snow. Well, "uh, yeh brah, no duh" you may think to yourself, but in this day and age even snow in winter isn't a sure thing anymore. Winter resorts, from the Rockies to the Alps, have been grappling with ever shorter snow seasons for years now-some of the resorts have even re-branded themselves as "sun and fun" destinations to try and recoup some of their climate change-related financial loss. Bummer, dude.
