perfect christmas gifts

The new collection of Return to Sender is now available at HEMA. I saw some pics and already I adore the little baby slipper from Nepal. Maybe I’ll make them a Christmas gift for my little niece.

Want to see more? Visit HEMA’s website and have fun shopping!


shop green in your favourite store

I’ve talked about sustainable clothes a lot. But sometimes you don’t want to leave the high street to get your doses of fashion. Fortunately regular stores also have a sustainable line. To be sure your favourite shop is also into green fashion, here’s a list with the labels to look out for.

The all Dutch shop HEMA has its own line called Naturally HEMA. It features clothing made of organic cotton, bamboo or clothes made with an organic process, coffee and tea with Rainforest Alliance Certificate and Fair Trade mark. And it also has gifts made by special projects; the products of Return to Sender are made by people who don’t have much chances in live and the money it makes goes directly back to the makers.

C&A has clothes made with bio cotton. I know I have a cute grey tee with a little print. And just yesterday I saw an ad on the TV telling us that they have both shirts and jeans. How nice! C&A aims to increase what they have to offer of bio clothes.

H&M recently came out with their Garden Collection. I wasn’t so fortunate to score the dress I loved at first sight. That collection was totally made out of organic wool/linen, recycled wool/cotton/polyester/polyamide and tencel. Also they always provide you with some nice bio cotton products. Hopefully the Garden Collection will have a return!

Hope I’ve made green shopping a little bit easier. I’m sure I’ve missed a couple of things, so be sure to let me know where you do your green shopping!
