Welcome to the new home of SSF Spotlight where you can find all sorts of fresh news, information, and resources on sustainbale style. We started this new version of Spotlight in the fall of 2007 because we had SO MANY ENTRIES in our former version that it was exhausting some of our member’s bandwidth. We hope you enjoy this new version and that you find its organization even more useful as you research ways to make more sustainable personal lifestyle choices.

ConvoyConvoy’s ‘Sustainable Collective’ line is created with broad elements of sustainability in mind and heart. Where do things come from? How is fabric grown? Where is it made? Where is “away” when something is thrown “away”? Convoy’s designers consider sustainability aspects of look, fabrics, color, packaging, labor, and community. Sustainable style at it’s best we say.

Everyone loves some good graphic design now and then. So when the graphically gifted turn their keen eye on doing good, big things happen. Such is the case with Design Elements, Inc. (DEI) .

Entertaining Eco-resolutions…

The Daily Green

Annie Bell Muzaurieta at The Daily Green has come up with one of our favorite eco-resolution lists for 2008. No, it won’t leave you eating bland food or working in the dark like some of those other lists. Her list of seven sustainable ideas is both refreshing and revitalizing as it has some pretty novel perspectives on things while having a good time.

Move over hugg…

Mond Body Green Logo

That’s right…move over hugg, now there’s something healther. We here at SSF are and will always be HUGE fans of Treehugger’s sappling review site hugg. But the latest entry into the ‘websurfer-reviewed content’ blogs, MindBodyGreen.com goes beyond musings on just green people, products, and ideas…it extends all the way into our overall mind/body/spirit health. Now those of us that are already diehard Private Practice fans know that mind/body healing is the new rage, so MindBodyGreen will is poised to be a great resource in this area. Yes, these sites are essentially popularity contests, but in this case of MindBodyGreen it means ‘most valuable information’. So go forth, surf, vote, and forward to friends.
