Being Green is a Beautiful Thing:One World Projects applauds the Emerald City’s First-ever “Green” Fashion Week

Attention, Seattlites! Got $50 bucks? Perfect. That’s your ticket to this Saturday’s runway show on Pier 66, which will feature specialty pieces from Diane von Furstenberg, Heatherette and Oscar de la Renta. (Admission into the after-party is also included). Proceeds from Green Fashion Week will benefit Earth Pledge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to green initiatives.

If you don’t live in Seattle, don’t despair. One World Projects has a huge selection of eco-chic designs to sate your inner eco-fashionista, such as handwoven shawls that support Burmese women living in refugee on the Thai-Burma border, or funky bracelets from a fair trade artisan workshop in Colombia established to provide much needed jobs to Colombian youth. Check us out at One World Projects.

And just in case you haven’t heard, today is World Animal Day. Whether you choose to celebrate your favorite pooch or feline, or support animal-friendly practices in the Amazon (or both!), our assortment of Tagua Nut products could be right up your alley.
