As green concerns permeate the economy, one of the world s top trend-setting boutiques is offering environmentally-friendly rubbish bags alongside designer sneakers and cutting-edge club wear.
Designed by Japan s Kenjiro Sano, the non-polluting 45-liter bags are on sale at 10 for ?8 ($11) at Colette s, one of the world s first and most prestigious concept-stores – shops that offer a cross-selection of goods.
A colorful world map is printed on the bags, so that when fashionistas put the trash out it gives you a chance to think about the importance of the environment.
To be fair, the trend-setting boutique visited by people from across the world joined the environmental crusade early.
It currently offers Kate Moss T-shirts whose profits fund The Climate Project, ethical scarves from Ethiopia from homegrown top-model Liya Kebede, carbon-footprint-free sneakers, and biodegradable Kiehl cosmetics whose profits go to a Brangelina foundation to help the planet. -AFP
