RESTORE Clothing – fashion meets function

Celeste and Anthony Lilore, founders of NYC-based, RESTORE Clothing are on our eco radar.  Having recently met them at a green gathering, they do walk the talk.

Their active wear, RESTORE, spells out all that a conscious fashionista could want:  Responsible, Earth friendly, Sustainable, Technological, Organic, Recycled and Ergonomic, (meaning not unisex).


In addition to aspiring to these planet-friendly attributes, their threads are also versatile — allowing you to transition from yoga or Pilates to street wear, seamlessly. (more…)

a new electric scooter hits the pavement

Well, it’s not a Segway. In fact, it doesn’t even look as cool as a Segway (my vote is not to opt for the detachable front basket, despite its practicality). But it’s new—and it’s about five times cheaper—than the original “ultimate” electric scooter.


Coming straight from Portland’s green scene, and built on three wheels, the new GoPet (personal electric transportation), is powered by a 48 volt motor that can reach 16 mph and travel up to 25 miles on a single charge, roughly 10 cents worth of electricity. Plug it in for four to six hours for a full recharge (a 110 volt “smart” charger automatically turns off when the battery is fully loaded) and you’re good to go. Like a bike, it features a hand braking system, and also includes a headlight, taillight, and horn. (Optional is a seat, folding handlebar and trailer.) See the GoPet in motion here.

What’s your vote? Geek-chic or not-so-much?

DIY baby beanie


Knitters, happily take note:  Natural Star, a New Zealand-based professional knitter can provide the beanie pattern (above) to fit Newborns through to 5 year olds, ($5 US).  No time for needles?  Find a head-topper ready-made in fine Merino wool, raspberry or navy, ($22).  Or pluck various sweet organic woollies for the wee set — mittens, booties, and sweaters via etsy @ NaturalStar.
