Crazy Fun “G” Girl Sunny Breaks Down What Is In Her G-Purse

0 Crazy Fun G Girl Sunny Breaks Down What Is In Her G Purse

Written by Sunny Subramanian | Since I recently vlogged about how to stylishly rock vegan clothes and accessories, I figured it only made sense to post a video showing y’all how to veganize the inside of your handbag, too. It’s as easy as can be and there’s no excuse not to do it!

Get rid of those nasty leather wallets, those icky, cruel, animal-tested cosmetics, and pack your purse with all kinds of fun and useful vegan goodies.

About Sunny: I’m an über-girlie, compassionate beauty junkie. Cupcakes are my favorite fruit; I even wrote a song about them. I have a mating call that snagged me a husband. I speak Kittese … almost fluently. I love writing and blogging, and I’m beyond stoked to be a part of peta2′s blog posse.

Urban Green Clothing Company NAU, Blogs About True Cost Of Their Products

nau truecost 01 Urban Green Clothing Company NAU, Blogs About True Cost Of Their Products

NAU reached out to its customers today in an effort to have an open honest conversation about the true cost of the clothing on our backs. We thought this would be great opportunity for NAU to speak directly to all consumers, not just their current customers. And yes, many staff members here at G Living are current customers. I myself own more than 30 NAU Clothing items and you will see me in a NAU shirt most days of the week. So, I guess you can say I am more than a little curious to hear what they have to say. I understand the issue of cost and find myself weighing cost vs usage. How many times will I really wear something and what does that cost workout to be. Most of the time it works out to be pennies, so it makes it worth the up front investment.

Tell us what you think about pricing of green clothing. If you have an opinion, please say something in the comments.

The following is from nau.com about us section: The post is titled, Our case for a new value equation.

In any economic climate, and particularly in one as difficult as this, it’s natural to consider the price of the products we buy, and whether their value justifies their cost. In recent months, we’ve received a number of comments on The Thought Kitchen regarding the prices for Nau products. One poster commented that “the clothing is great and unique but the pricing is outrageous,” while another wrote “You have to own the grid to afford those prices.” At Nau, we’re big believers in making considered choices, so we understand our customers’ desire to understand what value our prices reflect. So here’s a look at the true cost of producing Nau clothing.

Rachel Leigh Cook: She’s Really All That!

rachel leigh cook 01 Rachel Leigh Cook: She’s Really All That!

By Sarah Backhouse for Coco Eco Magazine, Photography by Rachel Schwarz, Styling by Michele Lianos, Make Up by Julianne Kaye, Hair by Tony at Photogenics

Young Hollywood is mostly synonymous with a bunch of vacuous brats who are “green” because Leo is or because their publicists told them to. So it was refreshing to meet actress Rachel Leigh Cook – a clever, candid and considered actress who had obviously given real thought to the threat of climate change. Fresh-faced, doe-eyed and skewing much younger than her almost 30 years, Rachel Leigh Cook reminded me of a young Winona Ryder. Eyes aside, what struck me most about Cook was her laid-back, unassuming attitude and oodles of patience, which unbeknownst to her, was soon to be tested.

Anyone who’s worked in production knows what it’s like when things don’t go according to plan. It’s annoying. As annoying as say a petroleum-fuelled blower within ear, nose and throat shot. The day of Rachel Leigh Cook’s cover shoot was just one of those days. Unforeseen construction on Malibu beach lead to a last minute change of location, which meant moving ten people, a ton of gear and what seemed like 75 cars, ten miles up the Pacific Coast Highway to stunningly remote beach location with zilch parking, zero restrooms and no cell phone reception. Add to that. mislaid gear, hell-ish school holiday traffic and some horribly lost crewmembers and you get the picture. Anyone with slightly diva-esque tendencies had already lost it. But this isn’t about me. To her credit, Cook remained calm and good-humored throughout. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos

Noir Illuminati II | High-End Ethical Fashion

noir 1 Noir Illuminati II | High End Ethical Fashion

Eco-fashions tend to congregate on the casual end of the fashion. After all, organic cotton and bamboo do make for some mighty comfy tees and great looking denim. But high fashion is finally coming to the party with some pretty stylish threads.

Take Danish label Noir Illuminati II. Their designs are as famous for their stark monochromatic, exquisitely tailored and über-sexy look as they are sustainability. The label consists of two parts: Noir represents the luxury brand, and Illuminati II handles its cotton-creating counterpart. The company uses fairly traded sub-Saharan organic cotton and operates under the business model of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), making it unique in the world of high fashion.

Run by Peter Ingwersen, a former Levi’s brand manager, the label is relatively new, having debuted a mere five seasons ago. During that time, however, Ingwersen has managed to up the use of certified materials from 30% to 70%. His signature fabric is organic cotton, which he sources from Ugandan cotton farmers. A percentage of the profits from the clothes goes back to Africa through The Noir Foundation, which provides essential medicine and micro loans as part of a Humane Business Model.

Perfectly Imperfect. When I first came across this sustainable clothing line, it sounded to me like something you’d find in an outlet mall. Imperfects. What a great idea, I thought, marveling at my own perspicacity.

Ma Ke | Art Imitates Life

ma ke china fashion slave free 03 Ma Ke | Art Imitates Life

As China enjoys a period of rampant industrialization on an unprecedented scale, lowly paid factory workers are churning out mass produced textiles behind the scenes to meet the global demand. Contrast this with Chinese “anti-designer” Ma Ke, who detests assembly lines and opts for design on her own terms — which includes unique methods such as “burying the clothes in dirt to allow nature and time to (add) the finishing touches”.

Worlds away from the factory workers of Guangdong, Ma Ke employs artisans who hand loom all her sustainable materials in sunny studios. A pioneer of sustainability, Ma Ke’s designs truly reflect the seasons — from the flowing asymmetrical jersey dresses of spring/summer and the layered knits of fall to the structured jackets and coats of winter.

Guess? | From Sexy To Sustainable

adriana lima guess ad Guess? | From Sexy To Sustainable

Guess? set the bar for sexy advertising. From the former campaign bombshells (Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, Adriana Lima and Paris Hilton) to their current cover girl Bianca Balti, the spitting image of young Sophia Loren, who can stop traffic with her mesmerizing…smile. Sex appeal has been the winning formula behind the Guess? clothing, accessories, shoe and handbag empire. What Guess? isn’t known for is sustainability. Until now.

Putting the sweatshop labor scandal of the nineties well behind them, Guess? is doing a good turn for the environment by releasing their eco-friendly line, Guess Green, to be released later this Earth Day month. First item to get the ethical make-over? Jeans, naturally. The “pinched ankle boot cuts” are made from chemical dye-free organic denim and would pair perfectly with their organic ribbed tank “embossed with a smudgy earth and peace sign”. The hand tags are made form recycled paper and printed with soy-based ink. 10% of the proceeds will go to the Environmental Media Association.

The Metamorphosis Collection By Fashion Designer Carol Young

carol young fashion designer 05 The Metamorphosis Collection By Fashion Designer Carol Young

You may think it’s easy for me – shielded away behind my macbook pro — to wax lyrical about being a socially responsible citizen. Sure, I talk the talk. But do I walk the walk? Oh yes, gentle reader, I do. Especially when ethical designer Carol Young’s Los Feliz boutique is literally around the corner from my abode. Not only am I walking the walk, I’m also buying it local, which more than justifies the non-essential purchase of a white moth microfiber cowl neck dress (which I had to get after I was informed by a sales assistant that I resembled “a post-apocalyptic Jacqueline Kennedy”).
