Bella Book: Style, Naturally

The green movement is growing quickly, and a new book aims to help shoppers track down fair-trade, organically grown, and earth-friendly fashion and beauty. Style, Naturally is a surprisingly hefty tome (printed on recycled paper, naturally) covering clothes, accessories, and beauty products. Author Summer Rayne Oakes is a model and green activist, and her passion for planet-friendly style is contagious.

The book explains why sustainable products are a wise choice not only for the planet, but also for your own personal health. (In the beauty section, you'll probably be freaked out by a long list of harmful chemicals found in most beauty products.) Along with profiles of eco-style pioneers, the pages are filled with photos of green fashion and beauty — kind of like a treehuggin' version of Lucky. That's actually the only part of the book I'm not crazy about; especially in the beauty section, I want to know why a certain product is worth buying, not just see a pretty picture of it. The book also does little to dispel the myth that buying eco-friendly products is only for the financially well-off. (Most people can't afford $50 pairs of hemp knickers and $62 bath oil.) But if you're interested in learning why shopping sustainably makes sense, and you'd like a little eye candy, this book is worth picking up.

I just bought this on amazon. Check out skin deep. It's this great website that scared me away from all my old products. Can't wait for this one!

Ooh, I'm going to buy this! I try to buy as many "green" beuaty products as I can, but I do agree that some of them are just too darn pricey.

Yeah I agree with aimeeb. I don't wear much makeup anyway and the brands I do use are just fine. Perosnally, some of the "green" products I have tried really weren't that great. However, I love Tom's of Maine and Badger balms :)

Pass. Way too many green products I've come across just aren't worth the money, sorry. I think for being sustainable the prices are just ridiculous. Of course I don't want to harm myself with chemicals and so forth but in this day and age EVERYTHING is a cause for something...sooooo I think I'll stick with my concealer, masacar, blush, lip liner, brow pencil and gloss from the brands I already buy from.
