TreeHugger would like to congratulate Jenny Hwa, owner and designer of eco-chic fashion label Loyale, for making O the Oprah Magazine's White House Leadership Project.

More than 3,000 women applied for the contest last spring, and the 80 winners were invited to attend a three-day crash course in New York CIty on creating change in the world, with coaching from top women leaders in the country.

Hwa, one of the 80, told O that Loyale aims to "create fashion-forward, accessible clothing that is made locally with sustainable fabrics." She adds: "I want to amend the current business philosophy that says the environment has to be compromised in order to make a profit."

Way to go, Jenny!
