Handbags made from Recycled Candy Wrappers

Screenshot 02
For the CandyBlog– Ecoist.com offers hand-made handbags designed by Marisa Rey, made from recycled candy wrappers, food packages, and soft drink labels. The bags are excellent, and range in price from $27 (for the coin pouch) to $285 (for the large basket). Plus, whenever one of their bags is sold, those nice folks plant a tree! Link.

    Recycling materials, such as food wrappers, that may never degrade in this way is an excellent idea, although I wish they made their policy of human capital clearer: it would be nice to know that the “skilled artisans” in Mexico are being paid a fair wage to produce these items.
