Green and ethical fashion in Boston @ young entrepreneurs showcases

I’ve been busy lately attending with my husband (have I mentioned before that I’m married..? Yes, yes, despite my young-look, I’m close to be 30, and happily married since 2010 :)) two exciting events in Boston, where young entrepreneurs were presenting their innovative new products. On Wednesday we attended Mass Innovation Night, while yesterday we run (we were late) to the Microsoft building to learn more about sustainable and green clothing products at the YouthTrade Summit (hosted by the Whole Foods Market North Atlantic Region). Here’s what I found most interesting:

– The Upcycled Wallet: Original – by HOLSTEE

This wallet cough our attention right away. At Holstee they sell, besides other products, this wallet made from upcycled plastic bags and newspapers collected from the streets of Delhi. As I told to the guy a the booth, it’s not only green and ethical, but it’s also pretty stylish, and you can trust Italians when we say that something it’s stylish đŸ™‚ đŸ™‚ It would sold easily in Milan.

– LifeCycle Bracelets –

This company was showcasing their products both at the Mass Innovation and at the YouthTrade so, thumbs up for their commitment! đŸ™‚

At LyfeCycle they make accessories from reclaimed bike chains that have been gathered from around Massachusetts. The bracelet (in the picture) is particularly fashionable, and it’s a bold statement, and very colorful/ready for the spring. By the way, they had a ruffle at the event on Wednesday, did I win by any chance? đŸ™‚

And finally, even if it’s not strictly fashion, I would like to mention the super-soft-pastel-colors-snuggle-snuggle-Plush Blanket “Me Two You”. With every baby blanket purchased, Me Two You will give a baby blanket to an orphaned child. You can read more and purchase a blanket for your little ones at:
