Ecoist: It’s in the Bag

27Sep06

I tried to exercise blogging restraint this week (i.e. my uber thesis project) but when Ecoist sent an e-mail about their 25% off clearance sale on their candy wrapper clutches, I felt beholden to pass it on. To take advantage of the sale, type “POUCH” as the discount code during checkout.

FG has blogged about them before, so faithful readers know how chic these little numbers are, and the benefits you pass on as consumers to the artisans who make them. I’ve spotted two of them in the office sported by fashion-forward, eco-conscious clients of ours. Here’s a small, small sampling…

Small Clutch in Hot Red, $48 (before discount). We’re told it holds a cellphone, wallet, keys, shades, and other small items.


Bar Code Coin Pouch, $28 before discount

Moo Coin Pouch, $28 before discount

Small Clutch in Green, $48 (before discount)

The Fab Factor: Artistically made from recycled candy wrappers, they are fairly traded, support the economy of the women who craft them. And as always, Ecoist plants a tree for every purchase made.

Shopping Tip: You can shop by color on the website–infinite array of patterns and colors–all one-of-a-kind and waterproof. Handbags and belts.

Ok back to work…enjoy!
