Okay. You’re not going to drown. But Doy Bags do seriously rock the proverbial casbah. First, they will satisfy that anime pop culture reappropriation of commercial goods urge that I feel most people have every oncet in a while. Second, they are helping the earth and women in the Philippines. Both good things. A women’s coop in the Philippines constructs the bags and accessories from recycled and used juice boxes and packaging. The bags have been a pretty successful venture since they hit the market – meaning the creators have some job security. Not something that comes easily to many people living in the Philippines right now.
If you don’t give a rat’s ass about the do-gooder aspects, just enjoy the fact that they’re cheap. I mean, when was the last time you bought a bag for under $30? I’m trying to think. Um. Still thinking. Nope, nothing coming to mind.
