Get Earth Day Friendly with Events, Products & Fashion that Are Earth-Friendly!
With Earth Day barely a week away, have you given any thought to that day or what it means? Earth Day is about celebrating the Earth and that it’s not just a big ball of rock but a living breathing eco-system of which we are only a part– and our symbiotic relationship is something rather important — something that we need to wrap our minds around that we may be a dominant species here on this planet, that it is our responsibility — not just a passing idea– that we need to work to help preserve that which we so often take for granted. So take a moment, sip that cappuccino or plain old cup of java, and think about what you can do to help Mother Earth on this Earth Day. It’s not as hard as you think– in fact it could be as simple as recycling the plastics, cans, bottles and papers, if you haven’t already been doing that.
In case you are having a “huh?” moment, here are some companies who are doing their part in Earth Day. Maybe it will give you a hint. Wake up and smell the organic and socially responsible java.
Kiehls celebrates Earth Day on April 22, 2008. The first 50 customers to return empty Kiehls product bottles to one of their free-standing stores for recycling will receive a Kiehls reusable canvas tote bag that they may use to help reduce their consumption of disposable shopping bags. There is a limit of one bag per customer.
Visit Kiehls.com to find the Kiehl’s free-standing store (or stores!) near you.

Clothing of American Mind is a clothing manufacturer that really does what it says — and says it proudly on the front of its’ tees!
Created by a Hollywood set decorator, Clothing of the American Mind (COTAM) is a grassroots company committed to creating apparel that is environmentally safe & responsible; politically and socially conscious; sweatshop-free, American-made and fair trade. (Whew, got all that? In other words, it does everything within all categories except take out your trash. COTAM is a fashion company that makes statements that you can wear and provides a social awareness education)
A portion of the proceeds is donated to progressive social causes, issues and political candidates working towards those same ideals. COTAM’s clothing line features 100% organic, sustainable, responsible, high quality tees. The brand promotes activism as a lifestyle and choice.
Become a political activist without walking a picket line. You are spreading a progressive “message” about the importance of this brand being manufactured fairly with a social consciousness when you wear this clothing. .
This company’s mantra is ” Take corporate social responsibility to the next level”; Clothing of the American Mind works hard to leave the the lightest footprint possible on Mother Earth.
Kamik Shoe Brand encompasses quality footwear for men, women and children. Rainboots for women and children are some of the most popular products in the collection. These fashion-savvy boots are available in an array of prints that will make any fashionista pray for rain.
Squiggle (Women) Rain & Garden Boot
These boots provide an anti-fungal protection and have removable, replaceable insoles. Kamik has created a recyclable rubber boot and some are made with synthetic rubber that can be recycled as well.
Stomp (toddlers/childrens) Rainboot
These boots come in solids and prints for children and adults for all types of weather. It is spring — and April showers are still with us– this might be a good investment. These boots are fun for summer if you are at the beach or lake or just playing in the garden with a hose. Not only are these recyclable, but the fashion quotient makes them stand out making them a worthy item for gifting or donating to charities and thrift stores (a form of recycling).
There are many products in the fashion, beauty, lifestyle categories including food and beverages that are organic and more about sustainable products. This particular topic will be “revisited” as I run across more products that are eco-friendly and have a style or entertainment quotient that is fun and/or unusual.
