Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability

An interesting looking bag I came across this morning...a solar powered bag for the fashionable lady or even for the man who is extremely comfortable with his sexuality. The new Solarjo Power Purse costs about $285, and looks like something you might find in a high end fashion store. The purse is covered in solar cells that can soak up enough sun in two hours to charge a cell phone battery. The PV cells are laminated for protection from scratches, and two batteries held in the lining of the purse hold a full charge that can last for up to a month. A USB port inside the purse can be used for charging most any small device, from phones to cameras, palm pilots to iPods. The new Solarjo is rather impressive compared to its predecessors which are more expensive, from $1,500 for a briefcase to $300-$400 for a carry on style bag to $250 for a beach bag.

Check out the bag, and read more about it here.

Thanks! I don't think I'll be buying one of these fashion accessories but I thought it was pretty interesting.

Great find! WWF has several bags available and 20% of each sale is received by the WWF.
