Since Jon already posted lots of photos from this weekend, and it would take quite a while to describe each store and location we visited along the way, I thought I’d post some links to the stores we hit, as well a map that I made for us to use so we’d know where we wanted to go. It’s made on Google Maps, so feel free to use it if you’re in Montreal!
I also wanted to point out the awesome and quirky zipper earrings I bought during our “green weekend”. You can find a picture of me wearing them in the slideshow linked in Jon’s previous post. My earrings are yellow, as seen in the picture I just mentioned, but I thought I’d post a picture of similar earrings as well:
Most of the links we used to plan our eco weekend are here on my delicious links, but I’ve also put some links to a few of the stores, designers, and/or clothing lines we checked out this weekend as well.
- Rien a Cacher
- Moly Kulte
- Ethiquette list of retailers- was very helpful in finding stores to check out
Other green stores worth checking out in Montreal (some we’ve hit before, some we still need to visit):
- Crazy Lily, with a great selection of high-quality and très chic eco-friendly fashion
- La Gaillarde, large array of eco-friendly clothes, vintage duds, and even vintage and reclaimed fabric for making your own eco-friendly creations
- Belle et Rebelle
- Co-op la Maison Vert
