Earth Girls Boutique

Earth Girls is a serious resource for wearable, daytime styles like Del Forte and Pine IV, in addition to alluring printed tops from Pamplemosses. Plus, the boutique has a charitable component as well: It donates 1 percent of all its sales to the Sierra Club, the country's oldest grassroots environmental organization.

Edun

This brand has one of the highest profiles in the eco-conscious clothing market, thanks in no small part to the fact that it's the project of Ali Hewson—wife of Bono. Edun emphasizes using organic materials and creating sustainable trade in developing areas of the world. It has a particular knack for T-shirts: The colors are subtle; the patterns are unexpected and just edgy enough; and they all have a really pretty feel.

Embodies

Slinky bamboo dresses from Lara Miller and bright knit hats from Linda Loudermilk are just a few of the options at this well-stocked site, which highlights under-the-radar labels like Les Fées de Bengale (designed in France and produced in a cooperative in India to improve living situations for women there) alongside more familiar names like Habitude and Good Society.

Envi

The online portal of Boston's first green boutique stocks a well-edited array of stylish brands—including slinky party dresses from Larsen Gray and skinny Serfontaine denim—and packs each item's listing with tons of helpful information. Every piece is photographed from a variety of angles and includes icons signifying its green elements: locally sourced, sustainable, fairly traded, and more.

Kaight

You'll find the same roster of compelling green lines assembled here that you'd encounter in Kate McGregor's airy boutique on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
