Lara Miller

As we elegantly (and orGLAMically!) transition into fall, versatile pieces such as those found in Lara Miller’s collections are key.  The Meadow Tank, shown above, is made in Chicago of hand-loomed, 100% bamboo.  The sweater-like fabric adds a pop of color during these fall months, but can also be worn well into the winter under a blazer and scarf.  Using eco-friendly fibers such as organic cotton, hand-loomed bamboo, hemp and vegan silk, all of Lara Miller’s designs are beautifully crafted and pass the orGLAMic test with flying colors.  Click here to browse all her collections and here to shop currently available items.

All my Manly Monday readers rejoice – Elwood offers hip, orGLAMic apparel for men!  Designed with the skateboarding culture in mind, all the items would look great on an everyday guy (whether you can pull a backside 360 kickflip or not!)  Elwood utilizes sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, bamboo, hemp and recycled yarns to create a wide variety of great pieces ranging from T-shirts to denim to my favorite plaid button downs.  In addition, Elwood is a 1% For the Planet Member, donating at least 1% of the company’s annual revenues to environmental organizations worldwide.  Click here to shop the entire Fall/Holiday 2010 collection.

Inhabit never ceases to amaze me with their chic eco-friendly stylings.  Today I present to you their amazing Braille Wall Flat.  This simple, yet powerful, addition to a room is made from 100% bamboo pulp and therefor biodegradable!  Each flat can be easily trimmed and mounted to fit any shape, and the scraps can be recycled with paper products or composted.  These durable and sustainable wall coverings are also chemical-free.  And while I like the stark white (surprise, surprise) these would also look really fun painted – with no/low VOC paints, of course!  Click here to purchase the reasonably priced Braille Wall Flat, and here to shop their entire orGLAMic collection.

Those of you in the eco-know have probably heard about Envirosax reusable bags by now – but did you realize how many chic, orGLAMic options they carry?  I certainly didn’t, and was thrilled to discover the over 70 styles on their website!  Personally, I am partial to the Midnight Safari for myself (and Sesame Street series for tots!), but there are fabulous organic and bamboo options available as well.  All the waterproof and durable bags are lightweight, making them an easy staple to throw in the back of your car or purse for eco-conscious living at all times!  Click here to shop the entire Envirosax collection.

Sometimes mainstream retailers surprise us with both their upscale design options as well as eco-conscious product selection.  This Bamboo Bath Coordinate set is available by Target (which I confess, I can’t resist once in a while.)  The sleek, simple look makes this set of unfinished bamboo bath tray, soap/lotion dispenser and bathroom tumbler look much more expensive than the $19.99 that it retails for.  Click here to snag one for yourself, and here to browse the over 1,000 other orGLAMic offerings available at Target.
