Today is Earth Day! It is our annual reminder to slow down and appreciate the bounty of our earth. It’s a day to reflect on our planet, our environment and teach our children how we can help protect it. Each year, we usually head to my parents house and help them garden. It’s a fun activity for the kids, but also opens up conversations about our planet and what we do in our everyday lives. For us, it’s growing vegetables, recycling, dropping off our compost, and buying organic and sustainable products when I can.
Each season, H&M produces a sustainable collection called Conscious. All of the pieces are made from recyclable materials in efforts to make protect our planet and our future. The line reaches all departments of men, women, and kids usually consisting of basic styles. But this season and for the first time, H&M created a sustainable occasion wear line, and it couldn’t have debuted at a better time than Earth Day!
The collection is a small capsule of spring dresses for girls, and a fun pant and blazer for boys. Every piece is made with sustainable materials, including Bionic polyesters constructed from recycled shoreline plastic. H&M’s conscious exclusive collection shows how the best styles can be mindful of the planet yet fashionable.
The girls wore their dresses during our trip to California. We met up with some friends in Topanga Hills for an Easter Egg hunt. Their double-layered, ruffled sleeved flared dress is a mix of organic cotton and mulberry silk blend. It was super soft and comfortable, and made the perfect holiday dress!
Happy Earth Day!
