Target Gets its Eco-Apparel Line

More stores jump on the green and organic bandwagon; now Target (with a marketing splash at Barneys New York and designed by Gregory). Gregory uses 100% certified organic cotton and other natural fibers, such as silk and linen, and his collections are sold at Barneys and Bloomingdale's. Gregory is the eleventh Go International designer who is adding his talent and design into the Target's Go International program, a private label collection that features the hottest trends for guests who welcome individual style at an affordable price. The line includes loose tanks, wrap dresses and hoodies, striped vest, wide-leg trousers, jeans, a strapless knit dress, crochet tunic, trapeze tanks, a plaid linen dress created from organic cotton, linen, bamboo and hemp and the price range is between $14.99 - $44.99.

You can have your (Barney) cake and (afford to) eat it, too.

Dear Lucia,
Kudos on the site! I'm with an independent watchdog effort in the Midwest and I just happened across your site while investigating Fair Trade principals. We're still in the baby stages but it appears that our goals are one in the same. I didn't see any contact info. so I apologize for leaving this on your comments page in advance. You can reach us at YourGreenReview@yahoo.com, we're always interested to hear how other grassroots efforts are progressing across the country.

Cheers,

Sara

Fair trade and organic should go hand i nhand with going green. Thanks for all the great info. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator. I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).
