new recycled candy wrapper bags – ecoist

Spring forward and make an eco-fashion statement with a new handbag from Ecoist’s Luxe collection.


Designed by Nazly Villamizar, this limited edition line is a fresh geometric take on Ecoist’s signature recycled-candy-wrapper “fabric.”  Inspired by the shapes, colors, and details of leaves, these eye-catching handbags were made using new weaving and pattern-making techniques. The recycled wooden handles were created from scraps gathered from furniture manufacturers and other sources.  Ecoist plants a tree for every bag sold.  Gotta like that it’s Fair Trade, too.

Honest Tea – Obama’s favorite brew

A terrific article in The New York Times today talks about how President Obama is not only changing the White House in terms of policy but also in style, running things in a slightly more casual fashion than his predecessor.


The article mentions that Obama stocks his presidential fridge with Honest Tea, his favorite organic brew, and mine too! Apparently his favorite flavors are Black Forest Berry and Green Dragon. If you’ve never tried Honest Tea you should. The company is committed to social responsibility, and its products are USDA Organic Certified, Fair Trade Certified, made with just a tad bit of organic cane sugar and delicious. How refreshing!
