Do you love purses?  I know I do!  I own way more than I should.  At least I keep them now and cycle through them a few times!  If you love purses but want something that isn’t hard on the planet, you should definitely check out UrthBags!

So go ahead, starting shopping, fall in love, save the world (OK, maybe that’s a stretch) & feel good about an UrthBag on your arm.

I was amazed by how many different products they repurposed into stylish handbags.  I received the Jenna Recycled Magazine Handbag to review, made from fashion magazines and salvaged plastic.  Being the mother of a toddler, I love that it’s waterproof.  There is a zippered pocket on the inside, plus two other pockets.  One lays flat and holds my iPhone perfectly, the other one has depth to it and will be perfect for holding lipstick and chapstick!

This purse would be great for travelling because it has a magnetic closure that is underneath a decorative belt, plus the ability to zip the entire purse closed under the flap closure.  This would definitely be a deterrent to any pick pockets!  I used tot ravel a lot in my younger days, so this was something that really stood out to me.  Of course if you’re not as worried about security you can leave the zipper open. 

The construction of the bag is great.  It really seems as though it will hold up well over time.  While it was stiff coming out of the box, it’s already softened some and I think over time will soften in all of the right places.  This bag really looks as though someone was hand-placing all of the pieces to make sure the bag ended up looking incredible.  There are no weird spots where heads are getting cut off or random arms and legs are showing.  These bags definitely look even better in person!  Little Miss was ready to steal mine as soon as she saw it!
