Eco-Chic: The Five Accessories Messenger Bag Assuages Your Guilt Of Shopping

What: Five Accessories Small Recycled Messenger Bag, $32

Why: I've been feeling guilty about shopping lately, with the economy in shambles. That's why I was so delighted to find this Five Accessories Recycled Messenger Bag; and to finally have a reprieve from my spending anxiety. This smallish tote (its dimensions are 6Lx4Wx8.5H) not only features an adjustable strap, credit card pockets, and an adorable tribal-esque print, but the company donates five dollars of every handbag sold to aid a charity in the locale where the good was handmade. And it's made from recycled rice bags. So in one shopping trip I was able to find the ideal present for my Whole Foods–loving aunt, contribute to the well-being of people in Cambodia, and generate further demand for a green-friendly marketplace. Who's feeling guilty now?
