Candy Wrapper Purses from Endangered Species

I would normally wait until my Holiday Gift Guide to post about this, but I doubt they’ll be any left.

Endangered Species had too many outdated candy wrappers so they engaged Ecoist to create a series of purses and bracelets from the old packaging.

They have two different logo versions (black and white) but the best ones are the large version that feature either the Giraffe from the Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate bar or the Snow Leopard from the Milk Chocolate with Mocha.

You can pre-order now, but they won’t be shipped until October 15th. They’re a little pricey (that’s what happens when you give people a living wage) at $25 for the coin purse, $55 for the purse and $16 for the bracelet.

You can also order your Green Halloween kits at the same time!

(Ecoist has other wrapper recycling deals as well, you can get Luna Bars or perhaps find a repurposed movie billboard.)

imageIf you’re more interested in eating your packaging instead of making it into things, take note that Charles Chocolates is running a web only promotion right now where you can save 25% on Edible Chocolate Boxes.

That means the Fleur de Sel or Marzipan Collections are only $33.75 and the Fall or Tea Collections are $45.00. If you can’t decide you can by the full collection of five boxes for $187.50 (five boxes you say, what’s the fifth? looks like another assorted collection). See them all here. Must ship by October 15, 2007.
