SustainStyle: Organic Martini Recipe, Skate Roots, Captain Planet + More

Welcome to SustainStyle, a weekly digest from the writers at 1plus1, a blog dedicated to eco-friendly fashion. SustainStyle runs every Wednesday.


Spring is in the air, but our urban apartment doesn't allow much room for gardening, so we were delighted to come across the perfect solution to indoor, no-stress growing: this self watering planter!

We got ready for a girls' night out with a killer "Dress Me" outfit that had all the boys tripping: a hot mini dress, vegan wedges and nail color to die for. We also added an organic martini that is oh so yummy (and glamorous) to the night's preparations.

If your weekends consist more of baby showers and meeting the in-laws, we found the perfect gift for you to wow your hosts! Also, organic hemp friendship bracelets that will let all your BFFs know how much you adore them.

We decided to revisit our skate rat roots with a husband and wife duo that take old skateboards and make them into must-have accessories. We continued our trip down nostalgia lane with earth, wind, fire and so on, as Captain Planet got us excited about television again.

And finally, in industry news, a major shoe company goes green with style, prints and organic fabric.

Stay tuned this week for a recap of LA fashion week's green shows!
