Visit to Arcadia Boutique

Arcadia Boutique is an eco friendly boutique that supports sustainable designers and artists, from near and far. I love that Philadelphia is home to Arcadia. If I heard about this place from a friend, I would automatically assume we were talking about Brooklyn. Wrong!

Also, to the surprise of some readers, eco friendly and sustainable fashion no longer equals hemp sandals. As we as consumers begin to learn more about organic and sustainable practices, it get us to think about the possibility of greening other industries. For the fashion industry, it may be harder, but as you will see, it is possible to combine fashionable products that are less damaging to the environment.

819 N. 2nd Street
