These fabulously unique recycled book purses are created using three attractively bound carved-out Reader's Digest books with a leather belt as the handle.

The ultimate in DIY chic, it is possible to make yourself one of these recycled book purses for as little as five dollars using materials found at your local thrift store.

A belt that features a lovely ornate buckle would make these one-of-a-kind purses stack up to be even more impressive.

Implications - Products that are made with an element of sustainability in mind are appealing to those consumers who want to protect the planet as best as they can.
