Recycled plastic country bag

This 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.  

US$26.50 from hip & zen and also available in purple with different motifs. 

International shipping available.

    I think bags made from recycled products are the way to go! Every little bit to help preserve natural resources by recycling and reuse, and contribute to local economies helps. I have a recycled wave tote bag made from recycled Asian rice and feed bags. It’s both stylish and practical. I found it from and their recycled bag collection:
