Although there are literally thousands of fashion magazines available for us to read, there are very few green fashion magazines. Which is why I want to spread some love to Boho Magazine because, well, they’re a green fashion magazine that rocks.
Boho Magazine is the brainchild of Gina LaMorte, a world-renowned stylist and fashion guru who’s consulted for huge names such as The Oprah Magazine, ABC’s The View, CBS This Morning, MTV, and a whole lot more. LaMorte wanted to start a fashion magazine that celebrated both our inner and outer beauty. And she wanted to focus on going green.
The result is a magazine that is interesting, beautiful and highly useful. For instance, that picture on the left is from a designer who’s turning old, outdated leather jackets into cool handbags.
What I love most about Boho is that it’s not exclusively about green fashion. There are wonderful articles that educate consumers on reducing their footprint and upcycling, the importance of buying vegan makeup, and pedaling your way through California towns. It truly is a green lifestyle magazine that also highlights some really awesome green fashion designers.
The magazine is also the first fashion magazine to be printed on 100% recycled materials. I love that!
The blog is also a great read. There are some great articles up there on eco decorating techniques, interesting artists, eco-friendly picnic supplies, eco celebrities, and companies like Earth Divas who are trying to spread fair trade products and empower women around the world.
For instance, check out this lovely picture of eco-hippie artist, Rachel De John, of Rachel Loves Peace:
Sadly, the Boho website is light on content. Well, of course it is; they want you to subscribe to the magazine! But it’s still a great site to dive into, and the blog is extensive and fun to read.
