This shop peddles eco-friendly apparel of all kinds, including organic denim from Loomstate, bamboo longsleeves from Sameunderneath, soy/organic cotton shirts from Of The Earth, and a whole load of gear from Bono’s Africa-supporting line Edun, Gaelic for “Africa will develop sustainable industry before I produce another album as good as Zooropa.” [TheGreenloop.com]
Gadgets: Solio Magnesium Edition Charger
A handheld power source that’ll charge your iPod, phone, GPS, PDA, or camera, the new Magnesium charges via its solar panels; one hour of rays=20 minutes talk time/50 minutes of tunes (also plugs into walls, keeping those sunless Scandinavian winters Bjork-tastic). [Store.Solio.com]
Gear: Worn Again Kicks
Worn’s surprisingly fashionable sandals and hi-/low-top sneaks’re patched together from disparate junk, then slapped with a label outlining the exact contents: seatbelts, bike tires, tweed clothing, parachutes, and if you’re really lucky, some of those Earth-friendly, GM electric cars.
