One of my favorite pairs of everyday eco-shoes are made by Simple Shoes -- out of organic cotton, hemp and recycled materials. And now the Californian company's come out with an equally green line of eco-bags for the spring season
Above is the Combover, made of organic cotton canvas and corduroy. Even the zippers have an eco-component; their bases are made with recycled PET from plastic bottles. The carry-all bag has a whole bunch of compartments -- both open and zippered -- that'll hold everything from your pens to your reusable water bottle -- plus an iPod-friendly inside pocket, complete with an eyelet to thread your headphones through.
Prefer backpacks? The Hangover above's got your back -- with a handy back zipper for your laptop to help you zip through airport lines. Need something smaller? The purse-sized Blotte and colorful tote Feedbag'll also help carry your eco-friendly lifestyle with you everywhere.
So if you've worn out the bags you own, browse and shop at Simple Shoes
. Prices range from $70 for the feedbag to $100 for the Hangover.
