Fashion Accessories: "Ecoist" Eco-Friendly Handbags Made from Recycled Candy Wrappers & Snack Bags - PODCAST
Now you can do your bit for the environment while you get a bag fix: we're in love these hot-lookin' recycled numbers from Ecoist (http://www.ecoist.com/) at Fashiontribes. These one-of-a-kind bags are crafted from recycled candy wrappers, food packages, soft drink labels, and materials discarded due to printing defects or discontinued products. Choose from a cute-cute-cute coin purse or a clutch with matching wrist-strap or even a tote bag you could schlep your couch in (which has been known to happen here in NYC).
This Miami-based company also walks the walk - for every bag they sell, a tree is planted as part of their partnership with American Forests.
