inspiring and covetable stuff

Is covetable even a word? Dubious... Anyhow, I wanted to share the link to yes, more of my WORK. Before you yawn and click away, I promise that even you issues-uninterested people (no MM, I'm not picking on you!) will find it a good read.

See some guy left a comment on an OW2.0 article with a link to his site, so I went to check it out, just cuz, well, that's my job. And hey-ho, what do you know, I was inspired to tell the story of the small company in Bali of which he is a founder.

Check it: Bombastic Plastix pays garbage pickers to bring them discarded plastic shopping bags and in a low-tech, low-energy but high-quality process, they turn 'em into beautiful fabric which they then sew into fantabulous looking handbags, totes and wallets.

So, just so you know, I've got a birthday coming up next month and really love the Shorty Wallet and the new laptop cases... The upcoming backpacks look great too (click over to their blog), though I'm feeling a little too old for those polka dots!
