Recobags Review + Giveaway

Recobags Giveaway

Reco Bags are a local company who turn trash into treasure. Literally. Using ring pulls, crisp packets, juice cartons, sweet wrappers, and other items which would otherwise end up in landfill, Reco Bags create gorgeous bags and jewellery. Each item is handmade using Mexican basketry techniques to weave the wrappers together, a process that can take upwards of 40 hours.

All the bags are waterproof and designed to be strong and durable, reflecting Reco Bags' ultimate aim to encourage people to become more eco-conscious.

There is something for everyone too; from coin purses (£12), to cases and clutches (£20 - £30), right through to large shoppers (£60). When Graham - the driving force behind the brand - asked my mum and I if we'd like to try a few out we didn't need too much convincing! I picked a large silver tote made from the inside of crisp packets; I figured it would be big enough for work without being too heavy to carry all day. And it's just so shiny. What can I say, I'm a 90s kid. Here's Marianna playing model:

I also got the small silver case (£20) which is the perfect size for an evening bag - lippy, purse, phone - so I added a silver chain for ease of toting. It's made from the inside of chocolate bar wrappers. My mum went the more colourful route, choosing a super cute small handbag (£10) made from juice cartons and a large bag made from crisp packets. I'm so impressed with the quality of each of them, it's amazing to think that my bag was once a pile of rubbish.
