Eco Style West Vol.34

Sustainable style news from EcoSalon’s West Coast Fashion Editor.

Dude Lube – A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month – did you know today marks the beginning of Movember? Formerly known as November, Movember is a moustache growing charity event held each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. For those men in your life who are growing one in support, help them along with Dude No.1, the decidedly manly scented beard oil from San Francisco’s fabulous Curator store. Fresh, spicy, and woody, the 100% natural oil uses only essential oils, organic hemp seed oil and American jojoba oil. As if you needed another reason to get closer.

Electric Life – Join the local eco-glitterati in welcoming the directors and stars of the highly-anticipated film Revenge of the Electric Car  to the Bay Area this Sunday November, 6. Premiering at the Landmark Embarcadero cinema just over the bridge, director Chris Paine’s new documentary film takes us behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Hosted by Nissan and Heart of Green, the after party reception will be held at the beautiful Le Meridien where guests will enjoy delicious local cocktails and appetizers.

Beyond The Fold –  As’s inaugural magazine plopped onto doormats across the country this week, the idea of websites going to print seems like eco-progress in reverse. Which is timely considering next week sees the staging of Issue No.5 of the world’s only live magazine, Pop-Up Magazine. Held at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall and showcasing the country’s most interesting writers, documentary filmmakers, photographers and radio producers as they discuss science, music, politics, art, business, food, literature, design, nature–all in a 90 minute show that exists for one night, in one place. Get your name on the waiting list for tickets today!
