Surprisingly,the bags are quite good! I like Alba's.

With petrol and oil & pollution being a big ecological issue in the US this definitely comes at the right time. Nice to see some celebs lending their fame to a worthy cause rather than another celeb induced,overly manufactured(read:ecologically unhealthy)clothing line. And the bags are all organic?

hi there yep all the bags are fully organic AND made from recycled material. hand stitching detailing which is apparent if you see the bag in person.

eco fashion has come a long way but it still has a long way to go. we dont have to work for Green Peace or the NRDC, but a small change in our lifestyle is an incremental success in itself!

the bags are up on ebay now! www.ebay.com/aveda . all proceeds go to the NRDC automatically via missionfish. thanks to these celebrities (who actually designed and sent back the bags), Earth is making its bid for sustainability.
