Eco Packing: A pampering vacation


Guess what time of year it is?!?!? Spring break time!!!!

Even if you're not in any sort of vacation-offering school program, just about everyone I know starts to get a bit antsy around March. Whether it's for a weekend or a glorious week, March is the time to break out the sunscreen and sandals. In honor of our upcoming sun-seeking travels, I've put together two different eco-friendly packing lists for two very different types of vacations.

For those of us who's ideal get-away involves sipping umbrella-ed drinks while lounging in our biggest sunglasses, the ideal packing list is mix of deep blues, sophisticated grays, and sandy accessories -- all organic, sustainable, and fair trade, of course!

The simple strapless dress will look perfectly relaxed from boardwarks to boutiques, while the polka-dotted number will jazz up salsa dancing with your spring break crush. The sophisticated denim pencil skirt dresses up sleek and sexy tees, while natural and neutral bag and shoes will look perfect paired with anything you bring (or buy!) And don't forget to pack a bathing suit! Let the rest of the crowd flop around in florescent string bikinis -- you'll be turning heads in this unique retro one piece.

Convoy Bamboo and Organic Eclipse Dress $112. Kerry Cassill Fair Trade Scoop Dress $158. Del Forte Organic Marina Skirt $145. Stewart+Brown Organic Scoop Neck Tee $74. C&C California Organic Va-Voom Tee $52. Patagonia Recycled Content Alkali Sandal $80. MAD Imports Fair Trade Acacia Tote $69. Kelly Barry Organic Glamour Tie Back One Piece $136.
