I’ve been really trying to make more eco-friendly clothing choices lately. My rules are it either has to be organic or fair-trade or “pre-owned” in order for me to crack open my wallet. And I know that H&M certainly isn’t fair-trade and that it qualifies under the evil heading of “cheap chic” clothing….
They do make cute organic clothes for really good prices. I feel like I should patronize their online store to buy organic clothes and that will encourage them to make more organic clothes. Is that just a huge rationalization because I want to shop at H&M regardless of how they treat their workers in factories far, far away? Hmmmmmmm……
Okay, so I love a good rationalization. Who doesn’t? Just check out this eco-friendly outfit!
Organic v-neck t-shirt. Lyocell blend cargo pants. Love it. So comfy. And by the way, I scored on Mother’s Day with the gladiator Birkenstocks I’m wearing. One word about the pants though. I had to send them back twice because they run so small. First, I ordered a size 8. Couldn’t get my big toe in them. Then I ordered a 10. Couldn’t get them over my knees. Finally, I was able to pull a size 12 over my junk.
Here I am in a picture I call, “Honey, have you thought about mowing the field lately?”
I also bought an organic henley shirt that I love, and some organic tank tops. I’m thinking of getting more.
Cause, you know, shopping at H&M helps the Earth.
(Maybe. Not really. Oh, let’s just change the subject! I’ve got a topic — Why do my children keep taking blurry pictures of me? And more importantly, why don’t I notice they’ve taken blurry pictures of me until right before I post?)
Have a crazy happy Monday.
