If you're looking for a gift for a really unique person, or just shopping for yourself and want something a little different, you might want to check out some of the bags and belts available from Little Earth.
Made largely from recycled items such as license plates and truck tires, Little Earth products are items you can feel great about buying, and even greater about wearing.
I personally own several of their products, and after years of abuse from me, they still look great, function perfectly, and get comments from everyone who sees them.
Little Earth was founded in 1993 by wife and husband entrepreneurial team Ava DeMarco and Robert Brandagee in a basement in Pittsburgh, PA.
Wanting a business that combined creativity and made a positive social impact, the idea of recycled items being turned into incredibly hip and fashionable accessories was just the ticket.
Nearly everyone who sees their products agrees. From Jessica Simpson and dancers for the Black Eyed Peas, Little Earth products have also been featured on Oprah!- as well as TV shows such as Friends and ER.
Think that if you've seen one license plate purse, you've seen them all? Think again, topping their own creation, Little Earth now offers their trademark license plate purses, adorned with Swarovski crystals.
And if you're looking for a truly custom handbag or gift, you can have any license plate of your choosing turned into one of their products. A great idea for one who is heading off to college, or relocating to another part of the world.
