Gifts for Everyone: Eco-Friendly Handbags

12/19/2006 at 03:30 PM ET

Buy a gift, plant a tree — that is just what happens when you shop at Ecoist.com. Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Cameron Diaz are all fans of the bags, made from recycled materials like gum wrappers, movie posters, and even confetti. Check out the festive clutches (only $14- $25) and the carry-all totes, $128, in loads of different colors. For each bag purchased, the company plants a tree through the organization Trees of the Future. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!

I think it’s great that the materials are recycled. I love the multi-colored confetti handbags and am going to order one for my sister – – ultra hip!!!

I like this one http://www.ecoist.com/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=96&idproduct=2085
I would wear them but, I think that they are asking alot of $ for candy wrappers.

I bought one of the wristlet’s at an enviro-friendly store and gave it to a friend for Christmas. Everyone at that party loved it! They are really durable and don’t look cheap at all.

The belts are pretty amazing, too! I can’t believe that they’re recycled. Very cool!

I bought a metallic bag which I can wear with anything – – I’m an Ecoist now!

Do you have anything special for Valentine’s Day?

That’s cool that they plant a tree when someone buys one. But I wish they were a bit cuter.
