Our newest Green Hero, Kelly Drennan, is an eco-fashionista on a mission: to create awareness about supporting ethical, sustainable fashion. As the founder of Fashion Takes Action, a premier non-profit organization focused on ensuring sustainability in every item of clothing, shoes, and accessories, Kelly has a new and exciting event coming up this week to help save the planet.

In its 3 season, FTA and WHEN (Women’s Healthy Environments Network) team up for Connect Beauty, a lively event that features high-profile environmental leaders modelling eco-fashion trends! On Wednesday, May 22nd, eco-leaders and eco-preneurs will gather for great raffle prizes, auctions on clothing seen right on the runway, local food and drinks, and a chance to purchase ethical products from a variety of businesses.

You can buy tickets to the annual event and support the demand for ethical, sustainable fashion. Live Green cardholders receive a special discount on tickets to the event as well!

Connect Beauty takes place on Wednesday, May 22nd, at Revival Bar – 7pm

Kelly, FTA, and many other eco-friendly beauty and household businesses, tips, games, and challenges can be found on the new “Green is the New Black” Mission on the Green Heroes™ Academy App. Play a game, play a part in changing the world: Join the Green Heroes™ Academy to take quizzes, complete dares, and test your eco-fashion knowledge while helping save the planet!

Do you enjoy shopping for designer or brand name clothing, but also want to make eco-friendly shopping choices?

If you’re in Toronto next week, you can do both at Shop Sustainable: An Eco Friendly Marketplace and Clothing Swap!

The event will be hosted by Fashion Takes Action, an organization that educates consumers and the fashion industry about sustainable fashion — a phrase that may seem paradoxical given the many environmental issues involved in the creation and disposal of clothing.

Shop Sustainable will take place on November 29, 2011 from 5 pm to 9 pm. Visit the Fashion Takes Action website for details.
