Candy Wrapper Handbag

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.

    My friend just brought me one from Puerto Vallarta.
    She paid 20 bucks. They pay the women who make them $5 a bag. I’d rather go to Mexico and buy them there. Alot cheaper and there exactly the same.

    I am dying for a candy wrapper bag, but I can never find them. I like every single bag there is, and think it’s so cool how they’re made. Even though I don’t have a candy wrapper bag, I recomend that you should get one.

    I Just arrived from Las Vegas. I went to the M & M candy store located on the Vegas strip and saw the coolest purses made from M&M candy wrappers. I loved them but they’re expensive. $250.00 for a good size purse.
