Today I am going to talk about Eco Friendly Fashion.. So lets start..
Recently I got couple of sweater from WoodenShipsKnits in an ECO friendly packing.
The packaging was done in a way that it will degrade super fast as it was made by OXO-degradable plastic bag and will not cause ecological mayhem. When I found out aforesaid was interested more in this company so checkout its just a marketing gymic or is this company doing something unique to keep there carbon footprint checked. I found out that not only they are using
oxo-degradable plastic but solar power for there manufacturing unit reducing carbon footprint.
This company is very good when it comes to respect mother earth.
Now all said and done about their commitment toward environment, I wanted to see the quality of sweater and to my surprise the quality was excellent. In my recent 4 days trip to San Diego it was chilly at night and I tried both the sweater felt very comfortable and cozy. It is a perfect mixture of current trends the quality and colors. The AUTUMN sweater gave me a very modern and fresh look which I loved it where as the other Cozy Cable Pullover sweater gave me a classic look. These
sweaters where super light to carry and easy to pack. After ages I have found good company which is ECO FRIENDLY having quality sweaters. The knit is done just right for a warm weather layer; not too tight to be too warm for the season and not too loose to offer no cover from the cool air.
When you go on vacation you want to feel stylish with less efforts and time as you want to enjoy more outdoors with your love ones.These sweaters were god send as it took me hardly any time to get dress, they go well on jeans as well as skirt and look stylish as well as it gave me warmth in late evening chilly weather.
