In my internet travels each month, I come across a delightful array of cool, sustainable, Fair Trade, charitable stuff. I can’t give them all their space they deserve, so I round them up in one post for you to peruse at your leisure. You’ll be seeing these brands and boutiques again on EcoCult, I assure you. For now, shop your heart out.

Want: Alexis Russell Jewelry

Alexis Russell uses fine recycled metals, and conflict-free gemstones and diamonds in each one of her traditionally crafted jewelry pieces.

Love: LURK Eau de Toilette

Anne Nelson Sanford of LURK natural fragrances sent me over a bottle of her new eau de toilette spray (or as she calls it, EDT–had to google that one) to try. BS 003 is a light and fresh, citrusy and warm scent that makes me think of a fancy cocktail by the fire. I love it.

Love: EA Burns Jewelry

Founded by Lizzie Burns, EA Burns jewelry is made from sustainable materials in London. For example the Span the Depth earrings use Rhodoid, a bio-plastic manufactured by traditional craftsmen in Italy using renewable plant based materials. The metal is recycled, and the diamonds come directly from an ethical mine in Australia and come with a certificate authenticity and origin.

Want: EcoHabitude

This store is a bit unfocused in terms of aesthetics and products (Wedding veils! A tote bag with a golden retriever on it! Body harnesses! An upcycled wine chandelier! Artisanal vinegar!), but there are some brands in products there I had never heard of before, which makes it worth a visit.

Need: Black Rat Clothing

Black Rat makes sustainable clothing with a timeless design, focusing on color tones of black through grey to white with bamboo and wool textiles, handmade in Norway. Because of the long winters in Norway, they produce only one season a year, with some music festival treats in the summer. They often collaborate with underground Norwegian musical artists for cool, sustainable band tees.

Love: Farm to People

Farm to People is a curated online store of artisanal products that you can get delivered to your door. It might not be as useful for New Yorkers–a lot of these products are right from Brooklyn, like Meow Meow Tweet, Red Jacket Orchards, Hu Kitchen, Skinny Skinny, Mast Brothers, Brooklyn Grange, and more. But if you want to get the Brooklyn experience and you live in, say, Los Angeles, this is golden.
