I dream of being an organized gal. You know, the kind who has everything pared down, properly labeled and in its right place. The recycled/recyclable plastic Jimi wallet forces me to streamline. The small wallet with detachable money clip is slim and sexy for boys and girls, but it holds just the bare essentials. I started off using it for jaunts to the tennis court and public pool, but now I can't conceive of going back to my bulky (and pricier) leather wallet. Plus, the company is committed to using lower-impact materials, avoiding sweatshop labor and manufacturing products in the United States.
Tom Bihn adopts the same kind of sustainable philosophy, and its cork pouches help make my dream of organization a reality. The cork fabric is harvested from the cork oak tree by peeling the bark, not chopping down the tree. I love the look and the insanely smart design of their products (that let you see the contents of your bag and protect the items you love). They also have a great cork bag for your Kindle.
