Original Good

As you know, everydaytrash.com is not a product pimping site. Of course, every once in a while we come across something made of trash with such a good story behind it, we just have to share. This evening, it’s these colorful bags made of old plastic bags by Conserve, a collective of women living in the slums of Delhi.

Given the tabloid coverage of the little girl from Slumdog Millionaire this week, it’s refreashing to see a skills-building, income generating, women’s empowerment program from India with such bright and hopeful products.

    I’ve had a Conserve bag for a few years (a friend went to a trade fair in India and brought back a sample for me!) and I love it. They’re durable, easy to clean, water resistant, and super cute. At xmastime last year CB2 was selling wallets and passport covers made by them as well. Great stuff!
