Rocket Dog Eco Friendly Shoe Collection at Ruche

These arrived today and I'm so excited to share them with you. At last!! CUTE Eco friendly shoes! I have always been a big fan of Rocket Dog shoes. I am now a bigger fan because of their Eco friendly collection. Rocket Dog made these shoes from a "planet huggin' mix of natural and recycled synthetic materials" that would otherwise go to waste. Even the soles, stitching, and color dyes are eco-conscious.



Some new organic clothing added too!



Adding to the whole eco mood, Josh and I have decided to become flexitarians (semi-vegetarians). We are going to try it for a while to see how it goes, but I have high hopes. We are lowering our meat consumption by over half. Today we had fake BBQ chicken and it was delicious! I'm so happy, we saved a chicken today hehe. There is no way we can become pure vegetarians, Josh loves tacos too much to sacrifice meat entirely. And of course, vacations are exceptions. 3 more days until Hawaii!!!!!

loving those shoes on the right! ah .. if you want to get some island clothing that is chic and not typical beachwear, go to fighting eel in chinatown! it's a must ... lots of their clothing is flattering on all types of body shapes and they have little details like pockets, cut-outs, and splashes of prints/batik. and there are always sales on samples and etc. check out my yelp review on it!

ah yes, and when you go to zippy's get the napples (apple turnover) - so good. if you like mochi nisshodo mochiya is delish (their red bean mochi is so soft and yum) and if you're in kailua go to boots and kimo's for breakfast.

enjoy your trip and get a plate lunch and head to the beach. lanikai or sunset are great! waikiki is overrated ... have fun!

Hello! I just found your shop and blog. Lovely! My husband and I have been trying out a sort of 'flexitarian' experiment too. We eat meat if we want when we go out but anything we cook at home is vegetarian. It's been a really great way for us to learn to cook more vegetables and grains.

Your have such beautiful stuff for such good prices. any plans to add styles fitting a size 16-18? :)

Have a lovely day!
