For those of you that know me, you'll remember that I come from a long line of recyclers, although in my great grandparents day, it would have been called junk collecting. My father's business was called General Reclaiming Co. - that's right, he had a glass recycling business in the 50's! Took it over from his father who started the endeavor. Grandpas parents were in the business too: some in paper, and yes, rubber! So when I saw this company that makes gorgeous bags - handbags, wallets, briefcases, and the like out of recycled inner tubes, I had to promote it. If I carried a bag, I'd have one of these. Ironically, the woman that started the company in her home doesn't carry a purse.
