Recycled Handbags= Recycled Idea
Here’s the latest and not so greatest in go-green fashion: handbags and accessories made completely from recycled paper, candy wrappers, and bottle tops. Yup, that’s right. The folks over at Ecoist have designed a line of completely environmentally friendly carriers for all the crap and the technology you need to carry. Something tells me that this is only the beginning of a wave of new products to come out of the environmental crisis, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But paying 180 dollars for a handbag made of recycled wrappers? Yeah, something about that stinks of exploitation. Plus, the styles aren’t that original. I’ve seen better and more creative things done with garbage.
