Just because Earth Day has passed, that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to keep the idea of Earth Day in your mind. Get fabulous and indulge your globetrotter fantasy while supporting fair trade products such as these fair trade handbags and fair trade totes. Fair trade products help third world artisans to make a living wage while they create one of a kind designs using traditional techniques. The colors, fabrics, and details often inspire the likes of the cool Parisian label “Maje” by Judith Milgrom.

The Find

Like so many days set aside for some sort of theme, I sometimes wonder why we *need* a day dedicated to the Earth. I mean, just like I think every day of the year should be filled with love, I definitely think we should keep the Earth in mind on a daily basis as well. Yet, if it takes setting aside one day a year to really bring the environment into focus, well, I’ll take it.

YSL Eco Tshirt

In honor of Earth Day, here at Purse Blog, we are going to set aside a little bit of time to bring you eco-friendly fashion. To start things off, I was ecstatic to see that Yves Saint Laurent has a green side. In conjunction with the release of the PPR-sponsored film “Home”, YSL has created limited-edition t-shirts, tanks and totes made with organic cotton. Make sure to check out select YSL boutiques in early June to snag these green-inspired fashion items. While the movie “Home” is about raising environmental consciousness, it is fabulous that YSL’s involvement helps boost awareness – fashionably.
