Trend: Eco Chic-Fabulously Green

Green is the new white. From weddings, to interior design to fashion, being green is becoming one of the most important aspects to modern life. We have listed some of our favorite examples in green design.

Michael Daigian Design recently constructed this vignette out of birch, hanging amaranthus, succulants, and green cymbidium orchids, for an Eco-themed ISES (International Special Events Society) event.
This Green Fusion installation was by renowned floral artist Jenny Tabaracci, AIFD. Jenny says that her "Green Fusion" vignette was inspired by the global movement toward saving the planet. After the event, apples were donated to local farms and succulents were reused and replanted. She suggests to use locally grown flowers and LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lighting, which consumes less power, lasts longer, and contains no toxins. Not only Jenny is known for her innovative floral designs but she is also known as one of the most 'eco conscious' designers. Please visit jennytabarracci.com for more info.

We are very excited to write about b(Earth), organic baby clothing company based in Seattle. They use only 100% organic, sweatshop-free cotton in their products. Even their labels are made from 100% organic cotton. You can receive updates and discount offers regularly on http://www.facebook.com/bearthclothing. The founder of the company, Luke Wilson, says that their mission is to provide clothing that is equally hip, comfortable, functional, and most importantly - as safe for your baby as it is for the environment. We can't wait to see their future products!
