Summer is hot on our heels and we are approaching the first holiday weekend of the year where we can begin to ditch the sweats and workout wear– and get back into the world to enjoy being together again. As we get ready to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend and warmer days, let’s continue to keep kindness in the forefront of our fashion sense. Coco Eco Magazine is excited to share chic, sustainable wardrobe options with Be Kind & Co. that will make us look as good as we feel as we begin this new chapter.
