Minimum waste, maximum efficiency. Citizens of Humanity is a cutting edge denim company that continues to lead the charge in establishing humanitarian efforts and vertically-integrated production practices into the United States’ fashion industry. 

CitizensofHumanity.jpgVertical Integration: From pen-on-paper design to sewing to quality control, COH maintains a commitment to its craft, keeping integrity and individuals in mind. Citizens’ production facilities and design studio are stateside, right in Los Angeles, CA.

Globally conscious: Designing with good practice and for the globally-conscious consumer, COH is partnering with UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) to provide aid and protection for people forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict and persecution. This incredible agency provides food, shelter, water, medical care and life-saving assistance to refugees all over the world. 

We are proud to be partnering with Citizens of Humanity in the #WEAREALLHUMANITY movement! Starting Sunday, August 26th, Green Envy will be donating $10 (for each pair sold) to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the agency that provides food, shelter, water, medical care and life-saving assistance to refugees all over the world.

Last year saw a record 68.5 million children, women, and men displaced, with many of whom are being hosted in developing nations where economic opportunities are limited. The UN Refugee Agency is the only organization in the world that is mandated to serve refugees, giving them the flexibility to direct funds to the areas where need is greatest.

S’well // Chic Hydration + The Perfect Gift!

In an era of innovative fitness trends, changing diet fads and a constant influx of athleisure fashion, there’s one variable that stays constant throughout – HYDRATION. Whether you are into yoga, running, cycling, crossfit, lounging, teaching or mom-ing, S’well’s stainless steel bottles are perfect for keeping you hydrated and on-trend. These vessels are seen on the desks of women at Vogue and in the hands of celebrity career moms such as Jennifer Garner. Plus, on the heels of Earth Day, we think that this reusable, super-chic bottle is worthy of a highlight!

S’well was founded with a call-to-action to lower the number of plastic bottles on earth. This woman-owned company (one of the fastest growing in the country! A $100 million-dollar brand) thought if she could make a water bottle as chic as it is functional, more people would be inspired to put down the plastic, disposable bottles and use S’well. Eight years later, and S’well is making big dents in the number of bottles NOT reduced to waterways and landfills. 

Besides boasting eco-friendly goals and sleek style, S’well can brag about these patented functionalities: 

  • Keeps cold beverages cold for 24 hours
  • Keeps hot beverages hot for 12 hours
  • Boasts a triple-wall Therma-S’well exterior that holds in condensation
  • Constructed from BPA-FREE 18/8 Stainless Steel

Swell_SS18_Social8FullSizeRender (5).jpg^ The Liberty London floral fabrics are iconic. Bright, beautiful and intricately rendered. We think the Liberty S’well collaboration is perfect for Spring…and Mother’s Day! Fill with water, lemonade or your favorite protein shake…and head to the beach, lake or studio.

FullSizeRender (5)^ The Roamer took a giant step forward in the S’well brand. This large growler-sized bottle is perfect for road trips, day trips, beach days (don’t forget the perfect beach bag!) and all-day sporting events with the littles. With an impressive 40 oz capacity, the Roamer still shares the same functionality as it’s classic S’well siblings. Keep yourself ultra-hydrated or go ahead and share your beverage with others! 

swellsocial_angelfoodeeab590f03ff8051d3b6419ef552357fOne of our favorite summer-time uses of S’well? COCKTAILS, of course! The 25 oz bottles hold an entire bottle of wine. We suggest you test that out, or try these staff drink picks:

Outfit your outings and accessorize your outfits with S’well!  Shop these NEW styles of S’well and so many more at our boutique in Stowe, Vermont. 

Happy hydrating.
