The latest addition to the flash sale site realm promises to live a green lifestyle. LovingEco, the flash sale site that launched Monday, gives members the opportunity to shop eco-friendly, Fair Trade and natural products at a discount of up to 70 percent off retail prices.

The site features anything from clothing, shoes and handbags to jewelry, candles and other housewares. First up on LovingEco's flash sales are eco-friendly brands Kenya, Cri de Couer, Stewart + Brown, English Retrends and Eko Miko Candles.

Founders Melinda Moore and Justine Lassoff, who both have backgrounds in digital media and integrated marketing, look at LovingEco as something personal.

"As a fashion-forward mom, with a young son, I deeply care about protecting the planet and created LovingEco to bring stylish, sustainable and affordable products to women everywhere," co-founder and ceo Lassoff told WWD. "I know that women are busy and do not want to compromise on style, so LovingEco provides a curated shopping solution for the modern-day, sexy woman and mother."

Moore, who serves as president of the company, added, "I have always embraced a natural lifestyle and this is a way for me to inspire other women to discover many innovative and stylish eco brands."

Adding to its socially conscious platform, the company will donate 3 percent of net proceeds to a charity picked by a weekly "Tastemaker," the first one being "The Office" actress Melora Hardin. The Tastemakers will also curate a selection of pieces on sale that week to be featured under the "Tastemaker Picks" category.
