Waste not, want not isn’t quite the battle cry that Kim Cattrall’s Samantha might coo to her perennially well-heeled cohorts – she’s more like the love ‘em and leave ‘em type.

She is, however, all about wearing fashion-forward bling and if recycled candy wrappers can make her look absolutely fabulous, then so be it.

Miami-based Ecoist — makers of distinctively bling-tastic limited edition handbags created out of carefully folded Mylar waste food wrappers – found a match made in heaven by pairing everyone’s favorite fashionista cougar with their $178.00 Mega Silver purse.

Sex and the City’s stylist Danny Santiago appreciated the modern edge of Ecoist’s oversized design since it translated well with Samantha Jones’ sheik daytime look, proving that eco-friendly is anything but frumpy.

Ladies who want to emulate the style of the silver screen vixen can opt to purchase the exact same silver version seen in the film, opt for a different pattern or choose among their impressive collection of other purse styles and colors.

What makes Ecoist’s creations even more covetable is that in addition to devising a clever way to keep candy wrappers, snack bags, soda labels and magazines out of our waste stream in an incredibly stylish way, they plant a tree with each purchase!

    What a wonderful way to run a business. Ethical enterprises are commonly found in Africa but I’m glad that here in the US, fashion names are doing their share as well.
