VIDEO: Creating An Eco Wardrobe

With the change in season comes a new line of fashion - and because the holidays are closer than you might imagine, a lot of shopping to boot. But part of being green in the windy city means developing a sustainable wardrobe.

So, before you go crazy buying a stack of new winter sweaters, listen to Chicago eco-fashion expert JESSA BRINKMEYER explain how to start transforming your closet into an earth-friendly oasis. In this video she also gives us a quick tour of some fabulous eco-fabrics.

And in case you didn't know, Jessa Brinkmeyer owns PIVOT, Chicago's first eco-boutique. The brand is retooling and will close its Fulton Market location at the end of the month, which means amazing sales on long-lasting, sustainable pieces.
