Everybody's doing it, and it's become the chic, in thing to do. Just like wearing black. It's everywhere, and now that's it's permeated our culture, there's no going back. And that's a very good thing!
But, like wearing black, you can do it so that it serves a purpose (but sacrifices style), or you can find chic and stylish ways to green your life and your wardrobe while making it that much more attractive to those around you who haven't seen the light.
