Alternative Apparel

Already a Lucky favorite for its super-soft, faded tees, Alternative Apparel recently launched an earth-friendly line called Alternative Earth. Made from 100 percent organic cotton, the selection ranges from the company's trademark crisp white tees to the slouchy V-necks in its Eco-Heather collection.

Amenity Home

Done up in subdued shades and crisp floral prints, the bedding and home wares from this e-tailer—owned by friends and graphic artists Nicole Chiala and Kristina de Corpo—hardly look as if they're made in an urban metropolis like L.A. Nature plays a huge role in the duo's designs: Only organic and sustainable materials are used for luxurious-looking offerings like alpaca throws, hand-screened linen pillows, and printed wall panels made of hemp.

Ananas Collection

These incredibly chic handbags and clutches are made from leather and abaca, a natural fiber taken from the trunk of a plant found in the Philippines. Though the line is constantly evolving—and new materials like coconut shells, mother-of-pearl shells, and wood have been added to the mix—the sleek geometric shapes and polished hardware are winningly constant.

Arcadia Home

Each and every one of Arcadia Home's office and home accessories is artisan-made, and many are from sources as unlikely as littered plastic bags, cotton remnants, and 100 percent wool felt. We're coveting the lush-colored journals that look leather-bound—but are actually made of recycled cotton scraps.

One of those rare sites that allow users to search wares by category—organic, sustainable, green, hemp, ethical, or made in the U.S. The graphic, printed shifts from Lina Rennell and plaid tunics by Loyale are standouts.
