As a secret tree hugger, I have a special appreciation for recycled and environmentally-friendly products that go above and beyond the stereotyped expectations. Here’s an example: I KNOW many of you wouldn’t look at this bag and think it came from plastic bottles.

I’ve teamed up with The Underground Chic to show you how going green has never looked so chic. This handbag blew me away in regards to its ability to look like the real thing — the Birkin bag. 

Not only is The Underground Chic’s version much, much more affordable but its opened the doors to sustainable yet sophisticated fashion for myself. I’ll be honest, after experiencing the quality of recycled products first hand, I’m more inclined to shop the eco-route when it comes to accessory products.

A little more about The Underground Chic:

When I first saw the bag, I was under the impression it was real leather; thinking to myself, “How can it be a vegan and eco-friendly product?” However when I looked a little closer, I realized my eye tricked me into seeing leather detail. In reality, I’m looking at a crisp photo printed image on 100% RPET (polyester made from recycled plastic bottles.)

These bags are super spacious, which is awesome for traveling purposes. I can easily carry my laptop in it and keep organized with the inside multi-pockets. I always have a hard time finding my keys and sunnies, so these pockets are such a blessing for my busy self.

The Underground Chic is a serious eco-conscious company that takes a responsibility to give back and contribute towards preserving the environment.  Through it’s partnership with Trees for the Future, every handbag or cosmetic that is purchased goes towards planting a tree.

I’m beyond impressed with the quality of this handbag and have a whole new outlook on the eco-friendly environment we can all participate in. Now, here’s your chance to sport a one-of-a-kind bag that makes going green oh-so chic:
