  5. www.twitter.com/EthicalStyle has earned over 3,900 followers. If you are an internet shopper like me, you will surely appreciate their website www.ethicalstyle.com.

You will feel like you have your own personal eco-minded stylist bringing you high-quality clothes that might be organic, recycled or fair-trade but are above all beautiful.
  6. www.twitter.com/theEcoDiva, 2,558 followers, is the Twitter-voice behindwww.theecodiva.blogspot.com. They are true to their self-definition. Eco = to educate and empower you to make better choices in beauty for your health, the environment and our future. Diva = reflecting your inner most style and personality. You will want to visit them frequently because they are constantly scouring Etsy for their Weekend Etsy Find. The new white leather handbag created from what was once an old white leather skirt is a must-see.

  8. Looking for Grechen? You can find her and 1,973 followers atwww.twitter.com/greedygrechen. Grechen is the Atlanta-based, eco-shopping queen of the internet. I was most drawn to her website www.greengrechen.com. She maintains 5 other websites as well. Her site is the one-stop shop for coupon codes to use at environmentally-friendly stores. She is a fashionista with a conscience which I interpret to mean that she will help you find a bargain but encourages you to think twice about whether you really need that handbag or dress you desperately want. A discovery on her site was a guide to plus size eco-chic. While she acknowledges that there are not a ton of choices in plus size sustainable fashion, I trust that her recommendations are both fitting and fabulous.
  9. The green fashion, beauty and lifestyle guide, www.twitter.com/Greenlashes is a Twitter-treasure find. Their 454 followers already know about their website,www.greenlashesandfashion.blogspot.com. Have you been looking for the perfect outfit that is comfortable, fashionable and kind to the earth? This is the place for you. They are the ultimate detectives when it comes to researching the materials and origin of each item of clothing they recommend.

  10. You are sure to appreciate our final pick, www.twitter.com/GreenCottonBlog. Although they currently have slightly less than 250 followers, this grass roots, nonpartisan coalition of fair trade organizations, vendors, retailers, schools, individuals and consumers will inspire you with their commitment to make a positive difference in communities around the world. The website www.greencottonblog.com draws attention to socially consciousness movements like Pants to Poverty, whose mission is to make fair-trade and pesticide free cotton underwear and Autonomie Project, a fair trade, vegan fashion company based out of Boston, MA, that manufactures natural fiber flip-flops, t-shirts, handbags and more. I particularly enjoyed their article about a group aiming to influence the very fashionable First Lady, Michelle Obama, to declare the White House a “Fair Trade Home”.
