I discovered Escama handbags after reading a BITE email last week. They make really cool handbags made from can pull tops. They are hand crocheted in Brazil from 100% post-consumer recycled aluminum. Some of the bags look like chain mail so I'm thinking about experimenting with a bag and depending on how that turns out maybe make some armor. It would be great for the MD Ren Faire day of wrong and other not-historically-correct events.
Today's Tip from The Sierra Club The Green Life:
Is to buy from a local store instead of a large chain store. Each dollar spent in a local store has a larger impact on the local econoly as one spent at a chain store...
.... So buy locally
