@csiriano on Twitter) was extremely kind and accessible, especially compared to Adrian Grenier, and I was delighted to be able to ask him one of my most burning eco questions. How can we green the fashion industry's footprint to bring eco-fashion to the masses at an affordable price point?
Designer Siriano has already partnered with Payless Shoe Source to bring a line of super sexy and hot high end looking shoes to the masses and he recently met with the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to discuss ways the fashion industry can make less of an impact on the environment to create a greener fashion footprint. Plus, as he was born in 1985, he was raised in an era where kids have had greening the environment incorporated into their school curriculum as well as their media.

When they give answers like, "Once people are educated on the why behind going green, they will begin to buy green." I am convinced that they have no idea, or have forgotten, what it means to be broke.
