Eco fabulous bags
New season- please don’t say winter yet- means new start ups in business, school and of course our wardrobes! Although we are going through rough times, a renewal is always helpful! Shopping therapy is the… answer thinking not only style and trends but also the protection of the environment.
Bags have always been a great fetish for women. The «I’m Not A Plastic Bag» canvas bag of Anya Hindmarch started a new era in reusable bags. Today lots of designers using natural, reusable and non-toxic materials, like canvas, newspaper, wrappers etc, create eco bags perfectly combining fashionable and trendy with eco and reusable.
Here are some of the most beautiful eco bags!
Last year the “it eco bag” was Feed bag- a stylish, well-designed reversible burlap and 100% organic cotton bag that has a mighty mission– to help raise awareness and funds for child hunger. FEED Projects’ mission is to create good products that help “FEED” the world. The organization does this through selling eco-friendly FEED bags, bears, t-shirts, and other accessories by building a set donation into the cost of each product. Rachel Bilson from Gossip Girl was one of the stars toting around an eco-friendly reusable FEED bag.
Another example of “green” hitting Hollywood is Samantha Jones, or Kim Cattrall in real life, wearing the Mega-Sliver Ecoist bag on Sex and the City 2. This bag can be your perfect every day bag. It is waterproof, made from recycle candy wrappers. It is a little expensive but remember that Ecoist plants a tree for every handbag sold.
