Be a star and make a statement with a bold design that keeps India's streets and slums clean. This colorful bag, one of our 'star' accessories, is handmade by blind and handicapped female slum-dwellers in Chennai, India.

These recycled plastic totes are made by first melting bits of used plastic items (such as plastic bottles) and drying them in the sun. They are then turned into plastic strands that are dyed and the women of the SPEED Trust cooperative tightly hand weave the strands into these colorful and fun, yet very practical bags. Take your star shopping, to the beach, on a picnic, or use it as an eco-friendly home decorating accent and organizer.
