Gunas Handbags

Rockstar Handbag
Rockstar Handbag

 

Hello awesome eco-handbag alert!!! I just learned about Gunas Handbags from a sale that Pure Citizenis currently having. Gunas designs are soo my style! They are eco-friendly and use all faux leather materials as well as using hardware that is lead and nickle free! The Rockstar bag in particular is making me drool! I really love it when I can find super hot designs that are eco-friendly.
Now that all being said, WHY IS THIS BAG $325?!?!?! Really this is the impression we are giving to people who already don’t understand the importance of eco-friendliness! This makes me soo mad! People already have the misconception that organic/eco-friendly/sustainable is more expensive and generally not what it says it is. Companies like this give other green businesses a bad name. We are just scaring potentials off. I thought green businesses are supposed to be changing the minds of the masses about making responsible purchases? Luxury items are so expensive because people are stupid to pay for it not because the items are actually worth that much. You pay for a logo people. I am soo disappointed in Gunas and Pure Citizen. We cannot change peoples minds about being green by trying to fit in with the mass luxury market. We are above the high prices and snooty noses. We don’t need our hand bags to cost $325 dollars because it is unnecessary to spend that kind of money on an accessory. Don’t get me wrong I love fashion and I want to look just as cute as the next greenie but there must be a limit.

LovingEco

I am tired of all of the deals that everyone else gets with websites like Send The Trend, Beyond The Rack, Style Mint and the list goes on and on. When are the eco-conscious designers going to break out and give us a much less crunchy look! Our chance has finally arrived! LovingEco offers daily private sales that help you make smart and fashionable choices. We all know the greenest choice is not to purchase at all but if you have to why let our environment suffer in the process.
What I really like about LovingEco’s site isnt the sales at all but their team. You get to see their pictures and get a sense of who they are besides just forcing eco-fashionable sales on you. Not that that is what they do but many eco-businesses can write an excellent mission statement and provide you with that you want to hear to increase their sales but the LovingEco team gets personal. You can feel if you are unsatisfied you know exactly who you can hold accountable and that takes courage! Did I also mention that proceeds go to charity when you purchase their Style for a Change tank.  100% of the proceeds go to one of 6 charities they have listed but you get to choose which one you want to donate to.  That is a change I can definitely get behind.

LovingEco’s Mission:Our mission is to create a healthier planet. We are passionate about inspiring change, giving back, having fun and making eco stylish. LovingEco helps give people the opportunity to make better choices about the products they purchase so that we together can create a more environmentally and socially conscious planet. By choosing to shop here you will create conscious positive choices from organic, recycled, eco-friendly and ethically produced items. And with each purchase a portion of sales goes back to charitable causes. Now start shopping differently…small changes can make a big difference.

Have you ever tried LovingEco? If so what was your experience? I admit I haven’t purchased from them yet but I do plan on doing so! Keep in mind the holiday’s are coming and this is a great idea to get good deals on some great eco-conscious items.
