Eco-Chic: Trash to Treasure

August 16, 2006 by Ktbradford

A few years ago I started seeing purses and totes made from drink pouches at craft fairs. They’re so mainstream now you can buy them from cool shops like UncommonGoods.icon

Kool-Aid may seem more 8-year-old style than yours, but recycled ‘disposable’ material for fashion can be fun. Take the Recycled Wrapper Clutch, made from candy and snack wrappers. The result is a colorful, eclectic bag that’s fun to carry around. I can’t get over how surprisingly sturdy they are.

Rubber tiresicon are also a favorite material for handbags. Creative accents like cutouts and seatbelt handles add to the kitsch factor.

For twist on the can/drink pouch concept, the Soda Can Tabs shoulder bag could inspire you to collect can tabs and make your own incredible accessories. This would make a great gift for a burgeoning eco-conscious youngster. Get these eco-chic and unique conversation starters at UncommonGoods.com.icon

Eco-Chic doesn’t mean you have to burn incense and scent yourself with Patchouli. Find conscious fashion and accessories in our Eco-Chic newsletter.
