Who says you can’t have elevated luxury while still being socially conscious?
A “green girl” at heart, Emmanuelle grew up in an organic home. Her mom always had a beautiful garden and made things from scratch, so you could say the rest then just came “organically.” “Once you learn about it and the more you learn, the more you practice,” she says. Emmanuelle is passionate about companies that align with her conscious lifestyle, choosing clothing, jewelry and beauty lines with meaning and a story of sustainability. “When people know the story, you wear something with a lot more pride, people like to be a part of that.”
These brands are driven by a responsibility of caring about the health of our planet and the people and animals we share it with. The balance between beauty and doing good are what these brands hold true, and these female-founded companies are socially conscious with sustainability at their core. Choosing ethical luxury and where you spend your dollars can make you feel really good as we all stand for something better. As for Emmanuelle, here are some of her favorite eco conscious brands . . .
For red carpet fashion, I love Amur. Just beautiful fashions made totally sustainably. Amur stands for A Mindful Use Of Resources.
