So a friend of mine just called my attention to a company called FEED Projects, who, among other things, sell the snappy handbag you see above.  Now, I am UNBELIEVABLY unqualified to comment on the fashion value of most anything, but I am more interested in the less tangible characteristics of the bag.  First, the bags are made with “100% organic cotton and natural burlap” and produced only in “certified fair labor facilities,” and intended to be an alternative to paper and plastic shopping bags.  Second, sales of the bag benefit the United Nations World Food Program’s School Feeding project, which looks to combat child hunger around the world.  For more info, please go to FEED Projects.com, or check out their story on CBS Evening News tomorrow night (Wednesday, 2/24).
