Earth Day has passed but designers are showing no signs of slowing down their eco initiatives. Next up to show its support for Mother Earth is Gucci Group, who have enlisted brands — such as Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Bottega Veneta — to design limited-edition, sustainable products.
This eco initiative promotes the release of the environmentally conscious film, Home, which debuts June 5 on World Environment Day. Alexander McQueen's trippy earth skull design (left) will be printed on an organic cotton scarf to be sold in stores and online starting in June. Other eco endeavors include Gucci’s Frida Giannini and Yves Saint Laurent’s Stefano Pilati who design tees; Bottega Veneta will create a tote; and Sergio Rossi will design an eco pump made out of eco-sensitive materials. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to Goodplanet.org, an environmental-protection charity.
