Buy a purse, Plant a tree!

Thank goodness there are more and more companies who not only pay lip service to the environment but actually DO something about it. Enter Ecoist.com. Marisa Rey designs each unique piece made from candy and food wrappers that would have been landfill fodder (they were misprinted or overrun).

During a recent trip to Central California, I had rave reviews for this brightly-colored and unique clutch. The wrist strap is the perfect length, not too long, not too snug. And it’s slightly rubbery so it doesn’t fall off.


Since returning to New York, I’ve donned a bright yellow tote. Smartly, there’s a detachable zippered pouch inside where you can tuck keys and credit cards.

I get inquiries about these purses everytime i wear them — from both men and women. I enjoy telling people how it’s made and that a tree is planted for each purchase and less waste is going to the landfill. Talk about feel-good consumerism! A great find at Ecoist.com.
