A Brief Blog Profile: Eco-Chick

by Thomas Hynes


When looking at the blog Eco-Chick, I'm reminded that those who are truly fashionable have been recycling for years. They just call it vintage. That's not to say this blog is entirely old clothes. There are plenty of new designs and items on here. It's just that everything presented has its true impact considered. They truly want the best for their readers. However, they're sure that can be done "without using all our grandchildren’s clean water and topsoil in the process."

For instance, new brides can have diamond rings. They just might want to consider one of these vintage ones. Not for nothing, they look pretty cool, too. What's more there's very little chance they came from an area in conflict. And speaking of where things come from, Eco-Chick professses their love for Think Coffee in New York because they know (and advertise) exactly where their products originate.

On this blog, you'll read about new yoga gear and must-haves for an eco-vacation. But you'll also read about the working conditions of garment workers in Cambodia. The truth of the matter is there are very real decisions everyone can make when purchasing clothes. And with blogs like this, there's really no excuse to be anything less than fully informed.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
