Announcing the Arrival of SPUN Clothing at Fashion Ethic

We are so delighted to announce a new line to Fashion Ethic - SPUN Clothing, created to allow women to change their closets from conventional clothing to natural fashions without having to compromise style.

Conceived by designer Sara Seumae, SPUN has the planet and style in mind. The line just launched with key pieces all created from 100% certified organic cotton and each dyed with low impact, fiber-reactive dyes for a minimal effect on the planet. SPUN is a member of 1% For the Planet, donating 1% of sales to this great group that supports environmental causes.

Each piece has been tested by your friends at Fashion Ethic for the best fit, flatter, and color, and we are excited to offer this affordable line of quality organic tops, including colors and styles that can only be found online here. Try SPUN today, and if you're like us, you'll have found a new favorite line that you'll look forward to watching grow in the future. Get SPUN.

Update on Mercy Corps in Myanmar

Faithful readers recall that 10% of sales this month at FashionEthic.com have been pledged to Mercy Corps' emergency Myanmar relief fund. Here is an update we received today in regards to what they are working on. Common misperception is that no one can get into the country or do any good, but I think you'll agree that isn't the whole truth.

Myanmar Cyclone Response
Mercy Corps is supporting the UK-based medical aid agency Merlin (www.merlin.org.uk) to provide relief to cyclone survivors in Myanmar, as part of Merlin's emergency health care mission. We are providing Merlin with technical support — currently three of our most experienced relief workers are in Myanmar, with more on the way — and $500,000 worth of funding for clean water and sanitation, a rice seed distribution to farmers, an emergency economic-recovery project (cash-for-work), and medical supplies

Fashion Ethic on Sprig.com

Fashion Ethic has been reviewed at Sprig.com and we couldn't be more delighted! Sprig is one of our favorite sites for their really cool short video tips and in-depth (but interesting!) expert interviews. The recent "Detoxify your Office" with Danny Seo was a great video featuring some cool gadgets that went straight onto our Amazon wish lists.

If you're not reading or watching Sprig, you should. And to Sprig.com, aw, thanks for noticing!
