The hippie movement, born out of the 1960s as a cultural revolution against The Man, has gone through many incarnations. Though free love and tuning in and dropping out may have fallen out of popularity, the modern day hippie is still alive and well. While many argue that the hippie subculture died after the Summer of Love of 1969, the green and organic revolution has easily taken its earth-loving place and these modern hippies need to shop somewhere! These hippie brands are absolute essentials if you're looking to take up the subculture and lifestyle of a hippie today.

Though most '60s hippies and bohemians would cringe at the idea of brands, we think it's safe to say that the modern hippie has brand loyalty to many eco-friendly, organic, and cradle-to-cradle companies that strive to make the world a better place (some brands on this list are even saving the environment!).

Whether it's supporting Toms Shoes with their dedication to giving shoes to a child in need, or Seventh Generation whose purpose is to make your home a cleaner and greener place, the amount of eco-conscious brands ensures a better future for us all. Then there are hippie clothing brands like Free People, Anthropologie, and Patagonia, that will help you nail the boho look in the blink of a poncho or new pair of hippie pants.

If you choose to shop local and organic, buy 100% recycled products, or think that Burning Man sounds like a rollicking good time, we think it's safe to say that you might be a hippie. We've compiled a list of must have brands that all modern day hippies should be using. What brands do you think hippies love the most?

Give peace a chance and vote for the best brands for hippies below. Don't see the brands that scream peace, love, and happiness to you? Add them below to enlighten your fellow hippie chicks and dudes.
