As a kid, did you ever fold gum wrappers and interlink them to make a necklace/bracelet? Well, it looks like a company has taken this concept to new levels. There is a company called Ecoist that makes handbags in all shapes and sizes that are made from candy wrappers!
These handbags are made from recycled candy wrappers, food packages, and soft drink labels. These excess materials have been discarded due to printing defects or discontinued candy lines.
I’m a guy, so I can’t truly appreciate these handbags, but they seem pretty fashionable to me. They are a bit pricey, but isn’t everything that’s eco-friendly expensive? In looking at the styles, I couldn’t actually find any candy I recognized since the visible amount of the wrapper is very small. Can anyone spot a known candy wrapper in the handbags? I saw a few that had foreign writing on them and one that was from Bimbo Bakeries (a Mexican bakery). It’s too bad you can’t request a handbag made from the wrapper of your choosing.
