Buckets of Convenience

Because recycled rice and feed bags are used by Cambodian women artisans to make these fairly traded totes, no two are exactly alike. The logos and lettering on the Eco Koren Bag offer foreign-language fun and flair. The long-wearing box-sewn seams and bucket shape hold two or three times more than your average paper or plastic bag. With each purchase, Global Girlfriend will fund 1 percent of a small business micro-grant for a woman in rural Africa.
