Ethical Products for Fashionable Geek Girls

 

Geek girls, unite! With these amazing options from socially conscious brands, there’s never been a better time to let your geekiness show. Whether you love Star Wars, Marvel, or studying the skies, you’ll find a fair way to celebrate your fandom.

Space Mission Alpha Patch from MokuyobiMokuyobi creates whimsical, retro patches and pins. Add a few space patches to your favorite denim jacket or bag for an instant, geek-friendly statement. All Mokuyobi products are made in the USA. $6.

Baby Groot Earrings from RockLove  — I found RockLove through their Star Trek collection on ThinkGeek, and I’m in awe of their gorgeous jewelry designs. Licensed pieces featuring Guardians of the Galaxy, Stargate, Firefly, and more are available in hand-crafted, thoughtful designs made from recycled silver and other consciously sourced materials. Each piece is made in New York City. $70.

Wonder Woman Undies from  Naja — Get ready to conquer the day with these Wonder Woman-inspired undies from Naja. Digitally printed to reduce environmental impact, these undies are made in a factory that employs female heads of household and provides fair wages and healthcare. $22.

Constellation Tank from Krochet Kids — A cool graphic tee is a wardrobe essential, and this one shows off your science-y side with a star chart. Krochet Kids employs women in impoverished areas and provides job training, steady income, and education. $42.

Rad to the Bone Dress from Retrolicious — ModCloth received a lot of bad press when it was bought by Wal-Mart, but I think the site is still a great source for made-in-the-USA and fair trade clothing brands. This Ms. Frizzle-worthy dress is made in the United States and is available in sizes up to 4X. $90.

Stormtrooper Backpack from State Bags — While I’m not a big fan of the buy-one, give-one model of some “do-good” companies like State and Toms, I’m happy when any brand that strives to be ethical gets official licensing deals with mega-brands like Star Wars and Disney. For every backpack purchased, State Bags hand-delivers a backpack full of supplies to an American child in need. $95.

Star Wars Sneakers from Po-Zu — Speaking of official licensing deals, Po-Zu is making waves with their Star Wars collection this year. As the source for Rey’s original boots in The Force Awakens, Po-Zu quickly became popular with geeks and cosplayers. Now they’ve released their officially licensed Star Wars collection, including these amazing, limited-edition silver sneakers. Po-Zu products are made in fair trade factories from eco-friendly materials. I own a pair of their Rey boots and can attest to the comfort and craftmanship. $196.

I’m excited to find options that are sci-fi AND fair, and I love spreading the word. Have you found any geek girl essentials that are responsibly made? I’d love to hear about it!
