Keeping warm eco-style’s cheap this season, thanks to the economic downturn. And the most affordable place to shop right now’s the Oko Box, an online eco-boutique offering some serious specials on winter accessories!

For just $9, you can get a 100% Hemp Kali Knit hat (right) from Ecolution in black, sage, faded rose or white. One size fits all. For an extra $10, you can get a matching 6-foot-long, 100% Hemp Scarf, available in black or faded rose. If your hands are cold, pick from green or red cable gloves made with organic cotton for $12.50.

Of course, if you’re buying gifts for yourself, you can broaden your money-conscious eco-fashion options by shopping second hand! Some of my fave shops are pre-loved clothing stores like Crossroads, Wasteland, and Goodwill.
