Green Your St. Patrick's Day: Don’t Get Pinched!

Green dress Mar. 17 is St. Patrick's Day! This week's tips, then, are about how to celebrate that greenest of holidays in the greenest of ways.

Tip #3: Don’t get pinched.

On St. Patrick’s Day, wearing green is mandatory if you want to avoid pinches from eager fingers. But the eco-friendliest way to dress green is to wear what you already own: Less consumption means less waste, and even a small showing of the color (socks?) gets you into the pinch-free zone. If you must shop for a verdant hue, support one of the many fashion companies who manufacture with the planet in mind. Not surprisingly, many responsibly minded clothiers favor the color green, or even emphasize it, so it shouldn’t take the luck of the Irish to find what you need.   

Tell us: What's your favorite green fashion line?
