Bag-Nista? These Green Purses will Make You Drool

overlandbagsWant to see the obsessed consumer in me come out? Put me in front of a rack of beautiful purses. In the days before I become a much more conscious shopper, I practically lived at TJ Maxx. Racks upon racks of designer clothes at steep discounts? Every day? I thought I was in heaven.

These days, it’s pretty rare for me to walk through the discount retailer’s doors. But when I do…it’s a challenge for me to walk past the purse department without finding at least 1 (or 5) I just can’t live without. So I’m thankful that my constant search for gorgeous eco-friendly finds often leads me to beautiful handbags that won’t leave me with a crisis of conscience. In this case, I also won’t have to break my pockets either.

These beautiful printed bags from Overland are an eco-diva’s dream come true. They are incredibly green in terms of materials, though I do wonder where they were made. Just as important, however, they are drop dead gorgeous! I’ve always been a fan of the combination of chocolate brown and just about any other vivid color. The green, nature-inspired pattern used on these purses makes me want to pull out my debit card right now!

I promise I’ll try to restrain myself, but I make no guarantees I’ll succeed 🙂

Why It’s Green:

  • Body of bags are made of hemp printed with soy ink
  • Features cork leather trim and sustainable panto wood rings
  • Webbing strap made of bamboo
  • Liner made of organic cotton

PRICE: Shoulder Tote, $38.99; Hobo, $33.99; Tote, $29.99 (aff)
