If there's one thing (sometimes called a trend!) that we should all learn to follow, it has got to be green living. You’ve heard of the words “recycle” and “sustainable,” but do we actually live them? Do we do them consistently? How about we take Gwyneth Paltrow as an inspiration. Ever since she started Goop, her weekly newsletter about lifestyle and fashion, we have been able to take a peek at what she does at home, may it be food preparation, interior design, or even something fashion-related. Gwyneth has been known to lead a life that rids of anything harmful to your body or the environment—organic, green living, that is. So we thought of a way we can start living like she does, by picking pieces that all scream love for Mother Nature.
