Overview

Have you ever wondered, "How can I inherently do good while looking good?" Wear No Evil has the answer, and is the timely handbook for navigating both fashion and ethics. It is the style guide with sustainability built in that we've all been waiting for. As a consumer, you regain your power with every purchase to support the causes and conditions you already advocate in other areas of your life (such as local or organic food), while upholding your sense of self through the stylish pieces you use to create your wardrobe.

Featuring the Integrity Index (a simplified way of identifying the ethics behind any piece of fashion) and an easy to use rating system, you'll learn to shop anywhere while building your personal style and supporting your values- all without sacrifice. Fashion is the last frontier in the shift towards conscious living. Wear No Evil provides a roadmap founded in research and experience, coupled with real life style and everyday inspiration.
Part 1 presents the hard-hitting facts on why the fashion industry and our shopping habits need a reboot.
Part 2 moves you into a closet-cleansing exercise to assess your current wardrobe for eco-friendliness and how to shop green.
Part 3 showcases eco-fashion makeovers and a directory of natural beauty recommendations for face, body, hair, nails, and makeup.

Style and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. They can live in harmony. It's time to restart the conversation around fashion—how it is produced, consumed, and discarded—to fit with the world we live in today. Pretty simple, right? It will be, once you've read this book.

Wear No Evil gives new meaning—and the best answers—to an age-old question: “What should I wear today?”

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/03/2014
Fashion stylist Eagan, founder of FashionMeGreen.com, offers an eye-opening tome on the devastating impact of the fashion industry on the environment. As the author explains, 13.1 million tons of textile waste goes into this nation’s landfills each year (95% of it recyclable); 1,800 gallons of water are needed to produce a single pair of jeans; and 20,000 annual deaths worldwide can be attributed to the pesticides used in growing the textiles needed to support the industry. Eagan makes a convincing case for rethinking our buying habits, and provides a concise guide for identifying sustainable choices. She presents a detailed plan for cleaning out and reorganizing closets, as well as tips on revising one’s wardrobe from an ecoconscious, style-savvy standpoint. She also makes ecofriendly suggestions on what-to-wear for first dates, job interviews, cocktail parties, and professional events, as well as a directory of Earth- and people-friendly cosmetics, skin-care ingredients, and products. The book holds a wealth of information that’s useful both environmentally and personally, and Eagan’s plea for a “reboot” of how people shop and clothe themselves is a timely entreaty for change.
