Today, friends, is what “they” call Cyber Monday. Yes, I was also disappointed to discover it’s not dirty. Nope, it’s the Black Friday of online shopping, when retailers offer discounts for shopping on the internet.
I was recently approached by Melissa of the brand-new Ecolissa site to offer a discount to my readers. Woo hoo! This isn’t just a Cyber Monday deal either. First, check out some questions I posed to her, and then check the bottom of the post for the discount link.
1. When did you start Ecolissa and why?
Ecolissa.com launched on Sept 1st 2010. I became a vegetarian 2 years ago and then slowly transitioned to becoming vegan. I decided to convert my wardrobe to being vegan as well, but I had trouble finding fashionable vegan clothing that is also eco friendly. That is what inspired me to create Ecolissa.com!
2. What makes your products different from other companies’?
Everything at Ecolissa.com is Vegan AND eco-friendly. Other companies only do one or the other. Plus, we only carry fashionable clothing because you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for your morals!
3. Tell us a little about the different fabrics your products feature.
We carry clothing and accessories made of sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, soy, bamboo, hemp, modal, tencel, and recycled materials. Many are also fair trade and made with low impact dyes. These fabrics are made from plants that require less water and grow quickly. These fabrics are high quality and very soft!
4. How do you select your designers?
First I look for eco friendly designers that produce fashionable, but not too expensive, high quality products. Then I carefully look over the fabric content to made sure I only choose vegan styles.
Awesome! Go check out the website. I know I have my eye on this gorgeous number:
