Great Buy of the Week: 100% Guilt-Free Shopper Bag from (WFTO) Asia - A Bag with A Cause Not Cost

I cannot resist a good, statement bag. I may not afford the likes of LVs and Gucci's yet, but I love bags in all shapes and sizes! They say a lady can either be a shoes or bag lady; but I guess I fall for both categories.

My attendance to the 100% Guilt-Free Shopper Campaign Launch is a real opener. I know it is hard for someone like me to go 100% Guilt-Free Shopper, especially that only 10% in the Asia is aware about Fair Trade. The least I can do at this point is to spread the awareness - fashionably. So I bought this lovely eco-bag from the World Fair Trade Organization which screams 100% Guilt-Free Shopper!

I love that it is not just any of the eco-bags I got from events because it is thick and durable. It is spacious and there is even a pocket for mobile phone or wallet inside. It can be a sling bag (with the adjustable strap) or a hand bag.

Dimension: height: 14.5 inches, width: 12.5 inches, base: 7 inches.

Although it is of white color, it is washable and just so perfect for travelling.

The best part is that a portion of the money paid to buy this bag goes to different organization and communities supported by the World Fair Trade Organization - Asia.

If you want to buy this bag, just go to any Fullybooked Store (priced at Php650), or just send me a note at ruth[dot]is[dot]ruthilicious[at]gmail[dot]com, so I can coordinate directly with World Fair Trade Organization.

Stay tuned as I would be giving away one bag as support to the advocacy of World Fair Trade Organization - Asia. Contest mechanics would be posted soon!
