While "determinate" varieties such as Romas reach only 4 feet tall or so, "indeterminate" varieties -- think 'Better Boy' and heirloom 'German Johnson' -- tend to push well past 5 feet. And flimsy store-bought tomato cages, often a mere 3 feet tall, aren't up to the job of supporting the plants.

There are a myriad of choices of course, but why not narrow them down with style AND sensibility that also happens to leave a lighter footprint? Here are a few that seem to finesse being sustainable while fashionably chic.
In the copy, Patagonia basically cops a plea and admits that even with its sustainable practices in place, the carbon footprint of the garment depicted in the ad is much higher than anyone would think.
The sunscreens on our list are chemical-free, protect against both UVA (skin cancer-causing) and UVB (sunburn) rays and are all under $25.
