Ecoist - Review and Giveaway-CLOSED




1. An individual that lives a modern, eco-minded lifestyle.

What We Do.
We upcycle waste to create stylish, high quality, and limited collection hand
bags. Upcycling: The repurposing of a material into a product of higher quality. Materials. We make our products using pre-consumer waste collected from factories that discard them due to misprints and overages. Instead of having them end up in landfills, we use them as raw materials for our products. Upcycling Partners. Our partners include The Coca-Cola Company, Disney, Mars, Frito Lay, Luna Bar, and AVEDA, among others. In the last 4 years, we’ve saved more than 15 million candy wrappers from going to landfills. (from website)

Ecoist makes the cutest wristlets
, clutches, totes, satchels, totes, crossbodys and shoulder bags out of recycled materials (They also offer bracelets). Each purse is unique, and made with Fair Trade Manufacturing practice, and
In partnership with Trees for the Future, Ecoist plants a tree for every handbag. It's a win-win-win product!

I received the
Confetti Coin Purse to review - Perfect for carrying little stuff like keys, cards, and some cash, these pouches make the cutest eco-friendly gift. Each one of these purses uses 60 recycled candy wrappers ! This little bag packs a colorful punch, and holds a surprising amount of crud, um, I mean important stuff :) I love the look of this bag! It's amazingly crafted - I keep looking at it, and I can't figure out how they get all the pieces together! I also love that the confetti look continues on the inside of the bag, and it isn't hidden with a liner. I use this bag when I don't want to lug my suitcase sized purse around, and love that it's a cute conversation piece and is a bright splash of color against whatever I'm wearing. My daughter also uses the bag when she's out with friends, and it easily holds her Ipod, cell phone and cash.
