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.

Foot cushions for comfortable heels

I used to have a problem wearing certain high heels.  I couldn’t stop my feet from sliding forward and it was most annoying.  I also had to stop myself from buying certain shoes because the outer soles were too slippery and I dislike the idea of sending them to Mister Minit.   Well, now I don’t have these problems anymore.  All thanks to Tip Toes and Sole Stopperz from Foot Petals which help to keep my feet perfectly cushioned and allow me to strut confidently and safely.

Ensure foot baths in nail salons are clean and hygenic

Much has been reported about the hidden danger lurking for women getting pedicures performed in whirlpool foot baths in nail salons.  If the tub is not properly disinfected, users could end up getting Mycobacterium fortuitum bacterial infections which start out as boils and turn into oozing sores, often leaving disfiguring scars.   

Apart from such bacterial skin infections, users can also get fungal nail infections, viral infections and in the worst scenarios, even blood-borne viral diseases hepatitis B and C, possibly resulting in cancer of the liver.
