Where to Buy Ethical and Sustainable Handbags and Purses
Whether you love handbags as a fashion accessory, or simply use them as a necessity, there is no doubt that they are important and useful. Most of us rarely leave home without a bag or at least a purse so it’s important that we have at least one good quality bag and purse to see us through our daily activities.
Bags are intertwined with fashion. Like clothes and shoes, many are produced in sweat shop environments, are made from materials that negatively impact our environment, and are designed to change with the fashion trends. On a positive note, there are an increasing number of sustainable options that are ethical and functional without compromising on style. Whether you need one all-purpose handbag or a few that serve a variety of functions there is no shortage of ethical options. We’ve compiled a collection of just a few of the gorgeous ethical and sustainable bags and purses available including some vegan options. Many of the styles here are available in a variety of colours so you are sure to find something that suits both the function you need and your individual style.
