Kaight: Eco-boutique on Lower East Side


Kaight, a modern, chic eco-boutique is pushing the boundaries of fashion with designs such as this striped Nicole Bridger organic wool jacket, on sale now for $348.75. (I’d have my own before the next storm if the price were even lower; being a student has its drawbacks!)

Owner Kate McGregor stocks a hip array of dresses, skirts, denim, sweaters, tees, tops, pants, socks, accessories, lingerie and even dishes. If you’re watching green fashion, keep your eyes on Kaight.

(Maureen stopped in last summer and picked up a couple of pairs of organic cotton denim jeans and that’s almost all she wears now. Okay, she throws on a top now and then…)

Located at 83 Orchard Street, check it out during your next visit to nyc. It’s in a funky neighborhood for daytime exploring — Organic Avenue, Priti, Bowery Hotel…but that’s yet another story.

EyeMax solar powered radio by Freeplay

eyemax_blue_small.pngThis sharp looking self-sufficient am/fm radio can be powered via its solar panel or hand-crank. When fully charged this baby will give you 25 hours of playtime at normal volume.

Also sports a built-in LED flashlight and a ‘high performance’ speaker. I like the fact that you can see its internal organs.

help Make It Right – green tees and donations


In case you haven’t heard, Brad Pitt is collaborating with the
Make It Right team on a truly green mission!MkIR3.jpg

They’re offering a line of very affordable, green products which include certified organic tees, cotton hats, and bags that are fully recyclable. Dyes used are low-impact. Brad is wearing one of the shirts, at right.

All of the proceeds from the merchandise will go toward Make It Right homes, which will be built in New Orleans, to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. The MIR team is ensuring that the homes will be: less impact-ful on the environment, green, affordable, and strong.
