"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head." "Blame it on the Rain." "Rainy Days and Mondays." Unless you're Gene Kelly, does any other meteorological event inspire a bigger case of the blahs? If gray skies aren't gonna clear up, you can still don your best happy face with one of the following eco-friendly wet-weather toppers. Featuring equally sustainable water-resistant finishes, you won't find one lick of PVC or Gore-tex among them. It's almost—almost—enough to make us want to sing.
UNDER THE WEATHER
If raindrops keeping falling on your head, stave away the foul-weather doldrums with one of these sustainably constructed raincoats and jackets. Water- and wind-resistant without succumbing to toxic treatments like PVC and Gore-tex, our slicker picks are a safe and stylish way of going puddle-jumping.
More into DIY than BUY? Make your own raincoat out of IKEA’s iconic blue bag. And turn a bunch of unwanted plastic bags into fancy rain boots while you’re at it.
