Have you seen those awesome handbags that are made from bright bags of cookies and potato chip bags? Well, I have some awesome news. Soon, we’ll be carrying some of these awesome eco friendly handbags here at Earth Divas!
When Earth Divas’ owner, Ed, went to India a couple of months ago he met a woman named Beni, with HeedNepal.org. Beni knows how to make these wonderful recycled bags out of used potato chip bags. And, Ed decided to place an order with her so we can start carrying them here on the site.
Can you tell I’m excited? I love these funky little bags because they’re bright, and they’re eco friendly to boot. What’s not to like about them?
Here are some pictures of some artisans making these awesome little bags. And yep, the guy on the left there is Ed himself!
So as you can tell I’m super excited we’re going to be carrying these bags soon. As soon as our order comes in and we get them up on the site, I’ll be sure to let all of you know! I’ll also be doing a post soon about Lhakpa herself, which many of you might be interested in reading.
