eco chic: mad imports

Given that it is Earth Day ( Happy Earth Day!) I thought it would be appropriate to post one of my favorite (and reasonably priced) eco-chic lines in celebration! The line is Mad Imports, a socially and environmentally responsible company selling handmade handbags from Madagascar and Kenya. Their colorful handbags are made using renewable raw materials. I am especially fond of their small handbags and clutches--the perfect summer accessory!

How are you celebrating Earth Day?

I love ALL of these purses. All I would need is 3 more and I could have one for each day of the week!
