Meet Your New Favorite Eco-Friendly Store (just in time for the holidays!)
I’m pleased to introduce you to one of my favorite new sustainable style retailers: Modavanti. Even though they are less than a year old, they’ve already pulled together a solid collection of stylin’ clothes and accessories that are environmentally friendly, ethically sourced and/or promoting social good. I put together a few of my favorite pieces in the image above, but those are just the highlights!
Modavanti also makes their sustainable evaluation process easy to understand by using a simple badge system that is nearly identical to what some of your may already know as my Fair Elements of Style:
But even if you put all of that do-gooding aside, the items they carry are simply well-made and on-trend, which is exactly as it should be. Probably the strongest section is the selection of bags, which has a variety of styles available at several price points, from polished clutches to fringed hobos. These make Modavanti a solid option for the ladies on your holiday shopping list! If you’re going to consumer, this is a place where you can be a proudly eco-conscious consumer.
On the more affordable side of the spectrum (and my personal favorites) are the bags by Angela + Roi that are pictured below. Not only do they come in a slew of beautiful colors, but $5 from the purchase of each bag is donated to a worthy cause related to the color of the bag in some way. For example, the poppy red bag benefits AIDS research in Chicago.
And guess what: I still have more good news for you! This month, I’ve partnered with Modavanti to offer the DC Ecowomen (and MFV readers) two ways to save a little cash as the holiday shopping season approaches:
1. Take 15% off all of your purchases at Modavanti through the month of November with special code MYFAIRVANITY.
2. Each one of you can enter to WIN a red Angela + Roi bag over on My Fair Vanity!
In the meantime, I’ll be seeking out more eco-friendly online retailers, brands and style advice to share with you in December. Until then, may the Sustainable Style Force be with you.
