London, June 7 (IANS) Eco-conscious English model Lilly Cole chooses eco-friendly brands that support animal rights and fair trade.

Cole has shared her top tips for leading an eco-friendly lifestyle, starting with only buying items from second-hand shops and ethically-sourced brands, reports

"I really like the animal welfare ethics behind what Stella McCartney does and I'm a fan of Erdun, Ali Hewson's company, which promotes fair trade in Africa," she said.

"Wearing vintage is a good way of being sustainable because you're reusing and recycling. I love Soho's Bang Bang Clothing Exchange and Retro Women in Notting Hill," she added.

Cole is equally environmentally conscious when it comes to her skincare routine.

"The Body Shop, Dr Hauschka and Young Living all source their products under fair trade conditions. I always make sure I have Eve Lom cleanser and Dr Hauschka eye cream in my bathroom cabinet," she said.
