In honor of Earth Month, each week I will be showcasing a local clothing or accessory store that falls into Neroli’s Earth Month Mission and share additional ways for you to make a difference with fashion towards an environmental cause. By the end of April you will learn how to re-purpose preexisting clothing in your wardrobe or where to purchase new pieces that you know are eco-friendly.
Neroli Salon & Spa’s is happy to be partnering again this year with The Alliance for the Great Lakes to help raise funds to clean Lake Michigan – a local water resource that has a direct impact on all of us. There are many ways to donate to the cause by visiting any of our locations such as rounding up the total for your services or products, adding a chair massage to your service at $1 per minute, buying raffle tickets, participating in our Cut-a-Thon on Earth Day or purchasing an Aveda candle specifically created in honor of Earth Month fundraising. Ask one of our wonderful team members the next time you are in for more information on ways to contribute.
This week, I would like to feature Lela Boutique where you can purchase vintage pieces and bring them back to life. Purchasing vintage clothing and making them trendy once again saves on materials needed to make new clothing and cuts down on environmental harm created in production.
Here are the women who started it all: Stephanie Sherman and Carrie Arrouet
(Carrie Arrouet is now the sole owner)
Try transforming an old t-shirt into a new scarf. This is very easily down with very few materials.
You will need: 1 old t-shirt, scissors
1. Cut the t-shirt (going horizontally) into 2 inch strips.
2. Take one strip and use it to tie all of the strips together.
3. Put it around your neck.Written By: Stephanie
