Would you believe me if I said I wore jewelry out to a dinner party that was made from old Barnes and Nobles bags?  If I didn’t see for myself, I wouldn’t believe it either.

The bangles were a great conversation starter, as no one would have guessed the original material.  The bangles were handmade by Garbage of Eden, which uses all different shop’s plastic bags.  You can find white bracelets made from Duane Reed bags or blue ones from New York Times newspaper bags.  I was happy with the two that come in each purchase, but feel four makes a better fashion statement.  Garbage of Eden makes unique eco-accessories from recycled items they find in New York City.

The price is right for these bangles, only $17 for two.  Not only does it ship fast, but it arrives in eco-friendly packaging.

 I had to capture the shredded flyers used for packaging.  Recyclable, and free!

You can purchase the Dark Green B&N; bangle here:
