Sustainable South Bay Style

Fashion and gifts—eco-minded and of-the-moment— abound at Grace & Greene

At a corner in Riviera Village, just steps from the ocean, there’s a boutique stocked with clothes and accessories—distinctly South Bay in flavor with serious eco-conscious cred behind it. Men’s t-shirts are soft, sensible and sourced from red algae and wood pulp, ingredients that render them naturally anti-microbial and odor-resistant. There are flowing jewel-toned tunic tops that have been “upcycled” from vintage silk Indian saris, and color-drenched bikinis sourced from plastic bottles and fishnets.



Grace & Greene favors relaxed yet body framing silhouettes, fine fabrics and beach-friendly color schemes like soft whites, muted blues and grays. “It has to be comfortable. That’s one of our requirements,” says buyer Sarah Oliver. “The other is that it has to be fully sustainable. It can’t be halfway there. There’s a lot of labels that do 50-percent eco, and we’ve cut those out.”

In case one equates eco-friendly with lacking in style, a spin around the place reveals plenty of chic, along with a bevy of singular gifts, from elegant pendants fashioned from sea glass and crocheted, surfer-girl hats to a display of darling all-organic cotton onesies and socks for baby.
