Create Your Own Look: In a sea of plastics and animal skins, consider creating your own, sustainable look. Palm fronds are not on the endangered list so the reality of you making your own straw hat may just be realized. Bracelets made from bamboo pieces and whelk shells may be both beautiful and environmentally sound.

Recycle Clothing: Whether it’s a used clothing store or refabricating some of your own selections, clothes can last much longer than we think. Bring that blouse out of retirement and add some bling. Cut holes in your jeans or sew up the ones you’ve already made. Pass clothes around and make sure everyone has a little piece of your ensemble.

Lose the the Leather: In a collaboration with Missoni, Malibu has created the modern huarache sandals. Visit their landing page and pick out the pair that’s right for you. Malibu’s handmade sandals, approved by PETA, are made of PU synthetic ‘leather’ and nylon, with a water-based glue. Malibu has decided to avoid working with any animal by-product, which is consistent with their support of the California Wildlife Center and their mission to “Be Kind to Animals. Don’t Wear Them.” Malibu is dedicated to the cause and will donate 1% of net proceeds to help with CWC’s cause.
