Green Day

Who says high style can't be eco friendly? Our editors reveal their favourite green goodies just in time for Earth Day, April 22. —Noa Nichol

earth day

sustainable style. H&M’s Conscious Exclusive collection utilizes a pioneering sustainable material made from plastic shoreline waste. The fluid fabric from which this intricate pleated gown ($249) is made shows just how natural it is for fashion to be gentle on the earth. hm.com

earth day

earth watch. Canada’s own Berg & Betts crafts sustainable timepieces using local designers’ leftover scrap leather—like shrunken lambskin—that would otherwise go to waste. Even our iPhones can’t tell time this stylishly. $129 at holtrenfrew.com

earth day

bright idea. If anyone could create an LED lamp to last 144,000 hours, it had to be Dyson. The company’s CSYS task light (from $849 in clamp, desk and floor models) uses innovative cooling tech to prevent bulb brightness and colour from fading—and looks good doing it. dysoncanada.ca

earth day

chop shop. In Vancouver, ChopValue recycles discarded chopsticks into designer lifestyle products: coasters, tiles, shelving. We’re confident the company’s brand-new yoga blocks ($75 in three dimensions, with custom engraving available) will bring better balance to our practice—not to mention the environment. chopvalue.ca

earth day

april showers. Kohler’s Toobi showerhead minimizes wasteful overspray, offers green, white or black ring-trim options and increases cleaning and hair-rinsing performance. Water efficiency, colour co- ordination and bad-hair-day reduction—are there any more direct routes to a girl’s heart?. $168 at ca.kohler.com

earth day

electric ride. With Tesla set to open soon in Park Royal, we figured no green roundup would be complete without mention of the eco-conscious car co.’s luxe range. Our pick: the earth-friendly-slash- sexy Model X, falcon wings and all. tesla.com

earth day

well suited. According to Vancouver-based Londrë, “swimming naked is the only more sustainable option” than wearing its sleek and multifunctional bodysuit ($120 in matte black or flat white). Made primarily from discarded plastic bottles, these water babies are sure winners. londrebodywear.com

earth day

sole mates. We’re looking forward to wearing our wine bottles (well, their stoppers, anyway) on our feet. Designed in Vancouver and launching this summer, District Open by SOLE is a collection of women’s sandals made from natural recycled cork (plus premium leather straps in seasonal colours). yoursole.com

earth day

super skin care. Toronto-based green-beauty brand Graydon places key ingredients like chlorophyll, food-grade Manuka honey and broccoli and berry seed oil in its cleansers, serums and more. The result: products that work like smoothies for the skin. graydonskincare.ca
