Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Don't just hold your pants up -- look good doing it!

chartreuse chic

I love recycled tire belts for two reasons (besides the obvious "what a brilliant idea for old tires!" thing.) First: They have a totally unique look without being too wild and out there. I've worn mine (in thick basic black from Hempest) to work and didn't get any second looks. Second: They really are durable! My old leather or leather-like belts all developed cracks or kitty bite marks after a year (they were all either H&M or vintage, so maybe things weren't in their favor.) But these tires were built to withstand way more abuse than they're getting around my waist (although I suppose I can't really speak for the abuse anyone else puts their belts through.)

These belts from Zero Per Gallon have the added benefit of fun colors and an absolutely hilarious write-up (which advertises the belts' "SooperDooper-Quik-'N-EZ NoHands Keep-U-Riding Fastening System (SDQNEZNHKURFS)" amongst other benefits.) Seriously, even if all your belt wishes have been met, you should check these belts out for the write-up alone. Sizes are for boys and voluptuous girls, but I'll bet skinny little things could ask designer Jonny5 to throw together a custom size.

Zero Per Gallon recycled tire belt $20.

p.s. Thanks so much to Fabulously Green and Hippy Shopper for the fantastic reviews this week! If you don't already have these two bookmarked, get over and check them out right now.
