I am so excited to review one of Beth Springer’s eco-chic handbags! I’ve been a fan of her line for quite some time, and now that I have an Ecovertible bag, I’m an even BIGGER fan! The Ecovertible bag is made from suede and reclaimed leather “bits,” it’s also lined in organic hemp linen. The Ecovertible is totally convertible from a shoulder to a messenger bag and is the perfect size for essentials. I carry a large wallet and makeup bag, a SIGG water bottle, and random electronic equipment; everything fits perfectly, and is easy to access.
I received this bag last week and have carried every day. Honestly the thing that impresses me the most about this bag is how light it is; I almost forget I have it on! The bag has one inside zippered pocket (big enough for all my “random” stuff), a snap at the top of the bag to keep it closed; the longer strap is NOT adjustable, but both straps are removable. Here’s a look at the bag both messenger style, and as a shoulder bag (I mostly wear it as a messenger bag):
I truly love this bag, and feel great about my small step in an more earth-friendly direction. I am definitely on a “green journey” together with Beth Springer, who is constantly progressing her designs and materials to be even more eco-chic: using vegetable-dyed leather, hemp linen linings, and producing her bags 100% sweatshop-free in the US. Hers is the type of company I’m excited to support, Beth Springer is an independent designer, hardworking female entrepreneur, and committed to doing better every day. Although bigger companies like Banana Republic, Target, Levi’s and more are jumping on the “green” bandwagon, smaller companies and designers are where the heart of the green movement is; they have been the engine of growth up until now, let’s not leave them behind…
