There are many levels to being Eco-Friendly and every little bit helps. If you’re currently recycling and re-using (such as shopping re-sale or consignment stores), that’s a great way to get started. Buying local at Farmers Markets (there’s even one in winter at the downtown farmers market) is also a way to be eco friendly. But if you really want to take it to the next step, take a peek at these 5 Websites (we found them in the November 2013 issue of InStyle Magazine) for an eco-friendly wardrobe.
