Our list of fashion pet peeves used to go like this: Sunglasses with crystals on the lenses. Any pant with a drawstring closure. Shorts with thigh highs. But now there's something more serious on our radar, and it's become our biggest fashion vice yet: Clothes that say "Recycle!" or "Earth day is every day!" or whatever - that are made in factories with synthetic materials. Of course, the number one offender is Forever 21, whose latest graphic tee screams, "What's your carbon footprint?" I don't know, F21, what's yours? Because between shipping your clothes from factories in Asia, using chemical dyes and fabric treatments, and handing out giant yellow plastic bags to every customer... well, you get the idea. We've also spotted "eco tees" at Urban Outfitters, Victoria's Secret, and Target - but at least they've paired with Rogan Gregory on an actual line of sustainable, conscious clothing. Buckle up and do the same thing, Forever 21, because "carbon footprints" aren't trendy - they're dangerous, and sometimes, so are you. End of rant.
