Buy This Coat! And Support Civil Eats

We here at Civil Eats know you want to be sustainable and stylish. We want you to continue reading our site while helping us support our indefatigable editors and writers, all of whom help contribute to the national conversation about food policy completely as a labor of love.

With the incredible generosity of cool companies like Nau, an eco-conscious clothing company based in Portland, Oregon, we are able to make the site more financially sustainable through donations. For the next few months (or until it sells out) you can snap up this fabulous breathable, wind-resistant and water-repellent eco-dress jacket, modeled by a Civil Eats fan Allison Arieff, former Editor-in-Chief of Dwell magazine, a regular New York Times opinion columnist, and food advocate.

She is featured in Nau’s “Portraits” series wearing the Chrysalis dress from their spring collection–and five percent of every sale will be donated to Civil Eats. In addition, Nau has extended to Civil Eats readers a 10 percent discount on all other clothing on their site just by using the “CIVILEATS” promotional code at the point of purchase.

We love that Nau shares our values, and that they make well-designed clothes that are both functional and aesthetic. The Nau “Portraits” series is all about iconoclasts. Watch here as Allison talks about her ideas on sustainability and design, and also why she chose Civil Eats to receive this donation:
