I am so excited about this new blog with the fabulous C.K.!! I started going green about 2 years ago, when I chose to start using the amazing reusable Diva Cup. I did not make this decision for the environment, but the more research I did, the more connected I got to women that did make this change and others, to reduce waste and protect our precious planet. So, I got caught up in the movement, and have never looked back.
I will only do so much though. I am a city girl through and through and will not sacrifice style, comfort or convenience for the environment, so instead I look for ways to do good for the world, and still stay true to my fashionista self. No crunchy granola mamma here!
Handbags are a big passion of mine, and I recently got tuned into a new handbag line that is both gorgeous and eco-friendly. Sparrow Handbags are made from organic cotton, dyed with environmentally safe dyes, and lined with recycled Tetra boxes! That's right, Sparrow uses Tetra boxes to help their handbags keep their structures shape. No animal products are used, of course.
OK, so they sound kinda crunchy, yes?I mean, Tetra boxes? Really! Well, take a look at these beauties:
Not a crunch in sight! I haven't bought one yet, but they are on my list. They are all around the $100CAD price point and available at Eco-handbags online, or these Canadian retail stores.
Bonus points: You'll be supporting a small, privately owned company!
