Check out the new line of vegan accessories from Malcolm Fontier. These slick urban bags come with names like “The Director” and “The Agent” to accommodate what you do. These bags are PVC (PolyVinyl Chloride) free (PVC is a nasty substance that can be an environmental and health hazard). The main material on our bags, which comes from Italy, is natural canvas coated with PU which gives it a unique feel and durability. Thanks to contributor Joelle for the heads up!the agent

2. CocoNUTS
Our dreams have been answered! Purely Decadent has made a line of coconut-cream-based ice creams and yogurts that are to die for.

My personal favs are the Cookie Dough and the Mint Chip.
