Greenola Style uses "fashion as a tool to create positive change in the world." The company provides a global platform for artisans in Bolivia and Kenya through their website, offering accessories and jewelry that adhere to fair trade guidelines as defined by the Fair Trade Federation. They also donate a portion of profits to Solidarity Bridge, which helps Bolivian artisans access quality healthcare for both themselves and their families.

They sent me a beautiful necklace and bracelet set made of dyed acai seads and sparkling beads. It's not something I would normally pick out for myself, but I've worn it a lot since I received it. It adds a graphic touch to simple outfits and works well with a variety of colors and patterns. Plus, it's affordable - this is something I could have purchased for myself without stretching my budget.

After a week of under-dressing for cool, early spring weather, I finally gave in and wore leggings. But then it was humid and 75, so I was uncomfortably warm! This season would be unpredictable anywhere, but I'm told Charlottesville has a mind of its own when it comes to weather.

Join the Ethical Blogger Network for an ethical style challenge on instagram!

On April 24,2013, Rana Plaza, a multi-story clothing manufacturing facility just outside Dhaka, Bangladesh, collapsed, killing 1,129 workers and injuring more. It is the deadliest garment factory disaster in history.

Fashion Revolution Day was launched shortly after as a way to both honor the victims of that terrible tragedy and to rally people to help change the global manufacturing industry for the better. The Ethical Blogger Network devised a fun style challenge as a way to spark conversation and share ethical resources. We think it's a great way to unite people under a shared goal of greater transparency and safer working conditions for workers worldwide.
