Wrong ways to be green- The Eco Purse Project

Click Me

I think that being green is good, but I really don’t think this is the right way to go about being green.  This company mostly makes purses,hats, and door mats out of plastic bags.  They claim the bags they use are recycled.  I call bullshit.  I’ve made a similar bag to the ones they sell.  It takes an insane amount of plastic bags to get a finished product.  They offer such a variety of colors and sizes for their products that I’d bet the majority of their plastic they buy directly from the manufacturer.  Even if they(and I presume that they do) accept donations of plastic bags from local households and other community organizations, the bags would not generally be of enough of single colors to get a finished product out of them.

In short, while it would be possible to operate it on donations from households, the finished products would not be nearly as pretty.  It’d be all one color, or more likely fragmented colors.

On a side note, who wants a hat made of out plastic bags?  SIgn me up.  That sounds super practical.
