Fashion: Eco Accessorising
Jewellery and bags are the perfect statement piece for any outfit and going eco is the best way to do so. Local markets and environmentally friendly store Trade Aid, are two places that you must check out for you accessory needs.
Trade Aid is a brand that imports all types of products from third world countries, selling them at cheap prices whilst still making sure the makers (those in the third world countries) are being paid the right amount for them. It is about fairness and bringing together the developed and developing worlds as well as providing amazing items for your everyday use! Check out their jewellery and bags and be sure to get all the background details on where your product comes from – it is the easiest way to make you feel good about yourself. Check them out at TradeAid.org.nz
There are markets everywhere – either weekly, monthly or yearly – but all offer amazing stands with handmade products for you to buy! My favourite thing about local markets are the variety of jewellery stands you can find. Most is made from sterling silver which is hard wearing and adds a gypsy flare to your style. Prices are always amazing and you can be sure to pick up a yummy treat whilst you shop. Check out your local newspapers or notice boards for markets close to you!
There are so many ways for you to eco-accessorise including the two options listed above – how do you do it??
