A Sweet Ending for Candy Wrappers


Candy is a girl’s best friend, no wait, that’s diamonds. I’ll tell you what candy does do – it creates cavities and a boat load of trash. Take all those candy wrappers, put them together and what do you get? Would you believe…a handbag?

Believe it. The Candywrapper Tote is made by fair trade artisans, from 100% recycled candy wrappers otherwise headed for the landfill. It has a wide-bottom making for a very roomy interior, along with recycled leather handles.

Measuring 11″ L x 14.5″ W, it makes an eco-sassy statement. Get the matching clutch (9″ L x 4″ W) to hold your organic face powder and lipstick.

Available at sponsor VivaTerra for $229 (tote) and $49 (clutch).
