Let’s face it.  Bottom-line is eco-fashion can often times be more expensive than fast fashion because the true cost is calculated in the price tag.  But buying with a conscience shouldn’t break you budget.  That’s why we’ve rounded-up eight great eco-styles for under $30.

 

Nkuku, Hard Angle Bangles. $26.

Handmade by craftsmen in India using Sheesham wood and resin, we love the contrast of the wood–a natural feel with a sharp look. You can wear the bangles alone, together or layered with your other favorite bracelets.

Etrican, Organic Cotton Flower Print Skirt. $29.

This light organic cotton skirt with an elastic waist band brightens up any rainy spring day.  Wear it high up on the waist for an elegant look or just above the hips for a more casual one.
