Model and environmental activist Summer Rayne Oakes launched her first book Style, Naturally, "a savvy shopping guide to sustainable fashion and beauty" on Tuesday night at Stella McCartney's New York City store. While this tree-hugging, beauty has been traveling the world eco-modeling, studying sustainable design projects, and becoming the youngest spokesperson on the Board of Advisors for Planet Green, she took some time to share her green expertise in her new book (printed on recylcled paper, of course) on how to be more environmentally conscious when hitting the racks.
