Imagine designer jewelry, and handbags made from pop tops of cans, old magazines, vinyl records, and phone books. Beautiful clothes created from technological fabrics made from soda pop bottles & industry waste. And image that the crafting of many of these items can create women artisans in impoverished parts of the world, and help to sustain them and their communities. Well that is exactly what the companies behind some of the products we’re featuring today, not only imagined, but have turned into reality.

The Pop Top Handbags. We were at a dinner party not long ago and a woman there had this stunning handbag we all admired. We were in awe when she told us it wasmade from the pop tops on soda cans. You can buy these beautiful bags and jewelery too, online from Escama Studios, hand crocheted out of pop tops in Brazil by women's Fair Trade collectives.
Candy Wrapper Purses. Ecoist is another amazing firm that makes beautiful handbags and jewelry out of just about anything, from candy wrappers to vinyl records. They partner with brands like Coca-Cola Disney, and Frito-Lay. Instead of having their misprinted and obsolete packaging end up in landfills, Ecoist reuses them to make these fabulous handbags. So far, Ecoist has saved more than 40 million wrappers from landfills. And for every handbag they sell, they plant in tree in places like Haiti and Uganda.
The Magazine Handbag. We love these beautiful colorful bags made from recycled magazines. And if you like these, wait ‘til you see the juice box bags. Made by UrthBags, these one of a kind handbags are made from recyclable or biodegrable materials. The bags are handcrafted by Fair Trade women's organizations and artisans.
