So I know the economic downturn’s technically a bad thing, but damn — eco-fashions are suddenly becoming super affordable! The downside, of course, is that no one has money to buy anything — but if you do, this is the time to invest in the key eco-fashion pieces you need. Let me make my point with that closet staple: the eco LBD.

The Lauren Dress . $25.50 at Modify.
This organic cotton dress is already on sale for $30, but you can get it for $25.50 by using this coupon code: SAVINGS. That code gives you 15% any item site wide.

The Doie Lodgepole Dress. $78 at Nimli.
This bamboo jersey dress was once $98, but NIMLI’s kicked $20 off the sticker price. (note: many items on this site aren’t eco-friendly)

The Mandy Dress. $79.20 at BTC Elements.
This U.S.-made organic cotton and bamboo dress is on sale for $99 — but can be yours for $79.20 if you use this coupon code: GreenLA. The coupon’s good for 20% off all items site-wide.

The Anna Cohen Soy Dress. $70.25 at Green With Glamour.
Once upon a time, this dress cost $281. Now, it’s yours for a lot less.

Of course, if you've already got a closetful of LBDs, focus on rewearing your faves instead of stocking up on a whole bunch of new ones. To reduce and reuse is even greener than buying new eco fashions --
