Earth to You

Milder winters might make it hard to justify this year’s island escape, but an even bigger pang of guilt comes from indulging in a little retail therapy.

Brook There feels your pain. The environmentally thoughtful clothing line is fashioned by Brook DeLorme, a designer who picked up a needle and thread long before talk of global climate change. It’s sweet, sustainable (made of organic cotton and bamboo), and sweatshop free (all items come out of DeLorme’s studio in Portland, Maine).

Calm your ecoconscience with slouchy hoodies and tees from the fall collection or adorn your curves in a lace-edged panty and bra, available in organic cotton, bamboo, or soy fabric.

Ecotherapy, here we come.

Available at Velvet Ribbon, 1620 Beacon Street, Brookline (617-277-0066 or vribbonboutique.com); online at brookthere.com.
