I find it interesting that a company with a name like “Make Love Not Trash” would openly admit that nothing is 100% green. I also find it interesting that for an unabashedly environmentally conscious company, Make Love Not Trash comes up with some totally new, completely unrecycled handbag designs.
This is one of Make Love Not Trash’s fringe bags, the Zip-Tassel Handbag:
It’s a nature-loving handbag, but it’s also one tough cookie. The main fabric is organic cotton denim, the handle and fringe trims are made of non-toxic materials, and the gold studs are nickel-free. This bag was made without using harmful azo dyes and printed without using chemical-based inks.
The wing print lining is pretty too
The Make Love Not Trash Zip-Tassel Handbag‘s motorcycle/biker chic design says that it may be a tree hugger, but it’s a bag that’s meant to last long time wear and tear.
The other bags in Make Love Not Trash’s Organic Denim Tassel Collection are designed the same way as the Zip-Tassel Handbag. The collection, which includes a clutch, a hobo bag, a wallet, and even a diaper bag, are all eco-friendly without screaming SAVE MOTHER EARTH.
Make Love Not Trash also has the hippie-inspired, for-nature-lovers-only handbags in their product lineup, but I like how they intersperse those designs with trendy and chic bags like the Zip-Tassel Handbag. They’re a company that believes in combining environment and social responsibility with fashion, something that should gradually become the norm in our shopping choices.
