Eco Packing: An adventerous vacation

chartreusesquare

Ready for a different spring break adventure this week? Costa Rica, anyone? Belize? Have I got the perfect eco friendly packing list for you!

The first order of business, of course, is being comfy without looking sloppy for your long plane ride. The loose organic dress will keep you relaxed but styling, while these fabulous and flowing organic jersey pants look like slacks but will feel like sweats. The great bamboo sweater/shawl is the perfect flexible extra layer for air-conditioned layovers (I have a sweater this shape, and it is FABulous.)

What's great about this plane outfit is how well it mixes in with the other fun eco pieces on this packing list. Throw on the stunning recycled bikini as soon as you land, then use the orange organic dress as a coverup. Head for early morning hikes in the organic jersey pants paired with a fun organic tee and afternoon kayaking in the bikini and the durable hemp shorts. At night, dress up the orange dress with the green sweater/shawl for beers under the stars. The sneakers here do double duty -- sporty by day, but with a collapsable heel that converts them to fun slides at night. Plus since everything on the list does double duty on your trip, you'll be packing light into the fun little duffle.

Popomomo Organic Accordion Dress $178. Eco-ga'nik Organic Jersey Mala Pant $68 from $88. TranquiliT Hoodie Wrap $68. Aaron Chang Recycled Reversible Bikini $99. ZOOEY and Love & Eight 'B Green' Organic Tee $82. Earth Speaks Hemp Asana Shorts $60. Patagonia Hemp and Recycled Patrol Shoe $85. Simple Shoes Hangover Bag $100.

Hey just stopping by to get my dose of green info. Always good stuff here! I am trying to compile a list of stuff I can do to reduce my carbon emissions. MTV had a commercial about it, and got me interested. I have been to www.earthlab.com and they have a ton of tips but I was mostly impressed by their page where they have their users send in tips: http://www.earthlab.com/life/tips.aspx Does anyone else know of other data bases that I can find these types of small things that lower my emissions? EPA or WWF maybe?

Thanks for all your info and drop me a link if you guys see anything worth my time.

Caitlin -- heard that Aaron Chang's recycled bikini line was picked up by Urban Outfitters. How awesome would that be?

That would be incredible! I'm keeping my eyes peeled and fingers crossed to see them out in stores soon!
