RE-USEFUL: In and around Earth Day each year, we’re presented with a host of new environmentally-friendly finds. Sometimes, however, a company’s commitment to the planet goes beyond a few special “green” goodies, as is the case with American Apparel. You might not know it, but your favorite stop for sweats, skivvies and shimmery spandex also makes habit of incorporating repurposed and excess materials in its designs. Items like Braided Belts, Headbands and more comprise this category, reducing the company’s carbon footprint on Earth Day, as well as the other 364 days of the year. GET IT: Shop online or at area American Apparel stores.
