This is easily my favorite eco swap of all time. This tote is made out of upcycled plastic water sachets that are collected (then cleaned and sanitized) from the streets of Ghana. What's even more special is that I got to meet the artisans myself and see the whole process. Every purchase of these totes provides fair wages for (mostly female) artisans in Accra.
