Recycled plastic country bag

336425412 d82d28cb36 m Recycled plastic country bagThis Samina bag is fun, fresh, and is good for the planet because  it’s made of recycled plastic bags, which are a huge environmental hazard.

Handmade by cooperatives in India, the project collects plastic bags that litter the streets and neighborhoods of New Delhi.

The process is a renewing process which uses a fraction of the energy of recycling, where layers of different color plastic bags are placed on top of each other and fused together. The lining is made of polyester, and the trim of rexine/vinyl.  In addition to recycling plastic, the process does not require additional dyes or inks which may be toxic.

Would you believe that these handbags are crocheted from recycled soda pop cans like Coca Cola drinks?  They are not only gorgeous looking but totally eco-friendly!  Even celebrities Jennifer Garner and Pamela Anderson are said to be fans!

Handmade by Neide Ambrosio and a small group of women in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, each bag is weighty and extremely well finished, worthy of the high-end designer attention they are currently receiving.  Like the mini-shimmery silver pop-top bag you see above  Eco friendly pop top handbagsmade with shiny aluminum poptops with brass hoops, creating a shimmering beauty of chain mail with visual textures in vertical stripes.  Definitely unique and unusual if you ask me.
