Clothing that's friendly to the planet AND your wallet

By Maria of Hinsdale South High School, Darien IL, ACE Field Correspondent

Recently there has been a rise in "green fashion" - from world designers to chain stores, people are getting serious about eco-friendly clothing! This is exciting but it can also be expensive. Not all of us can afford these new trends.

I did a little digging for more budget-friendly options for dressing greener. Here's what I found:

Being Earth-chic is hotter than ever

By Sarah Schuette, ACE Field Correspondent

If you know fashion, you know that anyone who says trends cannot be repeated is crazy. Each decade, each era, comes back into our fashion world again and again.

So why, in this economy, does that have to mean buying what’s basically the same outfit each time it appears as part of the “latest season”?!

It doesn't. And I'm going to tell you why AND how we can change this...

Gulf of Mexico oil disaster hits home

The oil disaster is creeping closer and closer to our coast here in Texas, with our neighbors in Louisiana already suffering. This disaster is hitting home as I think of my family and friends that work on offshore oil rigs.

As the disaster continues to unfold, I have to wonder, if what's going down in the Gulf of Mexico was a “wind spill” or “solar spill,” would so many lives be at risk?

Connecting the why

By Pic Walker, ACE Executive Director

I just returned from Disneyland, CA. Yes, that magical park where kids imagination and dreams are embraced like no other place in the world. I was there to celebrate the Disney Planet Challenge -- and the Grand Prize Winners: 6th graders from Mediapolis, Iowa, working hard to save the Bobwhite Quail.

Through conversations with these students in between thrill rides and celebrity sightings, I realized the importance of the connecting with the "why" of what we do.

When it comes to stopping climate change, or compelling anyone to take action, we have to make it personal.
