It’s VIEable: Eco-Friendly Accessories

We’d like to dedicate this post for all you “green” gals. As being eco-friendly is becoming more of a lifestyle rather than just a trend, a number of fashion brands are really starting to embrace this good-for-the-earth practice. By using recycled and non-leather materials, these brands are keeping environmental damage to a minimum. But being sustainable doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.

Take this selection of eco-friendly accessories for example. We chose a studded Matt & Nat bag that looks like real leather but is completely vegan. Muratori is environmentally-conscious collection of high-end handbags and its Twiggy burgundy doctor bag is a classic piece that will last for seasons to come. If you’re looking for a more affordable bag option, pick up this faux leather satchel by Big Buddha. For our jewelry picks, we’re loving Alex and Ani’s gold-plated bangles and turquoise cocktail ring, which are both made from recycled metals. All of these stylish pieces below just goes to show you that being “green” is ever so chic.
