Last December, Ecoist, the company behind the original candy wrapper handbags, renewed its collection of handbags made from overrun and discontinued bottle labels from Coca-Cola beverage brands.
Since its launch in 2007, the Ecoist Coca-Cola partnership has prevented more than 1 million Coca-Cola labels from entering North American landfills, helping Coca-Cola get one step closer to their goal of zero waste production.
By partnering with major brands like Coca-Cola, Mars, Frito-Lay, Disney, AVEDA, and Cliff Bar, Ecoist is able to recycle old wrappers and packages into clean designer fashions.
Ecoist is currently offering up handbags, cuffs and clutches as some of their most popular accessories. Colors range from loud to the minimal Black and white design seen here as part of the Barcode collection.
Adding to this green fashion attitude, Ecoist has also pledged to plant a tree with each purchase.
Visit the Ecoist site for more designs and information.
