Wear No Evil: How to Change the World with Your Wardrobe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Child labor. Factory fires. Toxic dyes. Pesticide runoff. Landfills full of clothes—that never (ever) biodegrade. For an industry obsessed with change, its ironic that fashion has been stuck in archaic and unsustainable methods of production, consumption, and discard. Luckily (finally!), the tides are beginning to turn, and more than any other time in history the future of fashion is coming into focus.

Wear No Evil is not just another book full of stats and sad stories to motivate your conscience to buy better. This is the book that pushes you beyond the awakened state. Its the fashion reboot weve all been waiting for, combining style + ethics without sacrifice. After reading this book, every time you go shopping (online, around town, or on vacation), youll have a navigation system built in and programmed to your specific preferences and values. In three distinct sections, Wear No Evil helps you to reclaim your power as a consumer and stop making the world a fashion victim.

Part 1 presents the hard-hitting facts on why the fashion industry and our shopping habits need a reboot. Through cogent overviews of fifteen points of integrity in design and manufacturing, this section sheds light on the eco-fashion movement.

Part 2 moves you into a closet-cleansing exercise to assess your current wardrobe for eco-friendliness. Next, Wear No Evil outlines how to shop green within each fashion category—from jeans to shoes to outerwear—and presents styling tips and recommended brands for both men and women.

Part 3 shows sustainable style in action. Eco-fashion makeovers with stylish men and women present real-world examples of how to marry your eco-knowledge with your personal sense of style. Finally, the last chapter offers a directory of natural beauty recommendations for face, body, hair, nails, and makeup.

Wear No Evil gives new meaning—and the best answers—to an age-old question: “What should I wear today?”

Review:

"Fashion stylist Eagan, founder of FashionMeGreen.com, offers an eye-opening tome on the devastating impact of the fashion industry on the environment. As the author explains, 13.1 million tons of textile waste goes into this nation's landfills each year (95% of it recyclable); 1,800 gallons of water are needed to produce a single pair of jeans; and 20,000 annual deaths worldwide can be attributed to the pesticides used in growing the textiles needed to support the industry. Eagan makes a convincing case for rethinking our buying habits, and provides a concise guide for identifying sustainable choices. She presents a detailed plan for cleaning out and reorganizing closets, as well as tips on revising one's wardrobe from an ecoconscious, style-savvy standpoint. She also makes ecofriendly suggestions on what-to-wear for first dates, job interviews, cocktail parties, and professional events, as well as a directory of Earth- and people-friendly cosmetics, skin-care ingredients, and products. The book holds a wealth of information that's useful both environmentally and personally, and Eagan's plea for a 'reboot' of how people shop and clothe themselves is a timely entreaty for change.

Synopsis:

Have you ever wondered, "How can I inherently do good while looking good?" Wear No Evil has the answer, and is the timely handbook for navigating both fashion and ethics. It is the style guide with sustainability built in that we've all been waiting for. As a consumer, you regain your power with every purchase to support the causes and conditions you already advocate in other areas of your life (such as local or organic food), while upholding your sense of self through the stylish pieces you use to create your wardrobe.

Featuring the Integrity Index (a simplified way of identifying the ethics behind any piece of fashion) and an easy to use rating system, youll learn to shop anywhere while building your personal style and supporting your values- all without sacrifice. Fashion is the last frontier in the shift towards conscious living. Wear No Evil provides a roadmap founded in research and experience, coupled with real life style and everyday inspiration.

Part 1 presents the hard-hitting facts on why the fashion industry and our shopping habits need a reboot.

Part 2 moves you into a closet-cleansing exercise to assess your current wardrobe for eco-friendliness and how to shop green.

Part 3 showcases eco-fashion makeovers and a directory of natural beauty recommendations for face, body, hair, nails, and makeup.

Style and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. They can live in harmony. Its time to restart the conversation around fashion—how it is produced, consumed, and discarded—to fit with the world we live in today. Pretty simple, right? It will be, once youve read this book.

Wear No Evil gives new meaning—and the best answers—to an age-old question: “What should I wear today?”
