100% recyclable kitchen by Valcucine on eco style blog

Glass Act


Valcucine's new 100% recyclable kitchen is a stroke of eco-stylish genius!

Constructed purely from recycled aluminium and glass, the kitchen unit system 'Invitrum' is easy to assemble / disassemble and doesn't even need glue thanks to the sole use of mechanical joints.

No toxic VOCs, super-glossy design and absolute natural resistance to water, steam and heat. Nice.

Ethical fashion pop up shop at Eco Age in Chiswick

Pop In To The Latest Pop-Up...


Usually pop-up boutiques burst into existence for about 5 minutes and then go 'poof' in the bat of an eyelash, never to be seen again....

Not so for 12 Degrees, the new ethical fashion pop-up store launching this week at Eco Age in Chiswick: 12 Degrees will be popping up not once, not twice but 12 times!  Once a month for a year, in fact.

A collaboration between The Guardian & Observer's green guru Lucy Seigle, Eco Age's Livia Firth, ethical fashion designer Orsola De Castro and stylist Jocelyn Whipple, each one will have a different ethical fashion theme and offer everything from the perfect eco party dresses to sewing with pineapple fibres workshops.

Folk ethical menswear featuring organic cotton and alpaca wool

Folky Doky


Chaps, we have to admit that it's a rare occassion that an eco-friendly menswear brand appears on our pages. Why? Well simply because there aren't that many that cut the mustard!


If you're on the hunt for some ethical threads this season then hop on to hipster shopping site Oki-Ni and check out Folk. Their SS09 collection is jam-packed with organic cotton and ethically sourced Alpaca wool fashioned into easy-to-wear styles. Look a little closer and there's some pretty cool detailing going on there too.

Fairtrade organic cotton tshirts by Stella McCartney for Red Nose Day

Red Noses At The Ready


What with all this snow and ice, your poor little schnozzle is probably already a comedic shade of Rudolf right now, so forget about getting yourself an additional red nose for Comic Relief and instead get your mits on one of Stella McCartney's limited-edition tshirts.

Designed exclusively to raise money for Red Nose Day, the Ts are made from fairtrade organic cotton and modelled by a whole host of celeb friends including keira and gwyneth. Each one is printed with a retro photo of either morcambe and wise, the beatles or madonna - all featuring graphic photoshopped red noses!

How fun is that?

New eco-convent in New York by BKSK Architects.

Sister Act


After 10 years of praying for an all-singing, all-dancing eco-friendly convent, the Espiscopal Sisters of the Community of the Holy Spirit in New York are finally getting one!

Yup, the girls have just commissioned the first eco-convent to be designed by BKSK Architects which is starting construction in Harlem next month. The snazzy nunnery will feature rooftop kitchen gardens, water heated by solar power, rainwater collection and environmentally-sensitive building materials.

Adding to their already green habits (sorry!) of composting, recycling, eating organically and using energy-saving light bulbs, these sustainable sisters are really paving the way...

BKSK Architects have just started talks about an NYC eco-synagogue too!
