Once again I am dumbfounded by the outrageous price tags of eco-friendly items that are made by recycling CHEAP material.

A very good example is this traditional Cuban coffee roasters' Trilby hat by Ataahua. Handmade in New Zealand from upcycled Hessian coffee sacks, the cool hat sells for about $106.

Oh, I know it's handmade and that, "Each tailored hat is an original," but we're supposed to promote green environmental alternatives, not discourage people from buying them.
