‘Win It’ Wednesday: ‘Li’l Lady’ Bird Designer Handbag

Written by PETA | December 2, 2009

As I’m a firm believer that a gal can never have too many purses, I think this week’s “Win It” Wednesday is quite possibly the most drool-inducing one yet. Check it out:


Lil' Lady Bag


Bird Handbags hooked us up with its fabulous “L’il Lady” bag, which retails for $214 and is made from recycled Army tents (not a stitch of leather on it). I have a feeling that some lucky winner will soon proclaim this designer bag to be a new fave.

Here’s how you can win: Imagine that you’re calling in a dedication to a radio station—include a brief message and name the song (and its artist) that best sums up your feelings about your favorite bag. If I could enter (sniff—I can’t), here’s how my entry would go:

This is Karin from Brooklyn. To the one who is always by my side, the one who never complains about carrying all of my cruelty-free lip glosses and anti-fur stickers, I dedicate “Little Green Bag” by the George Baker Selection.*

Have a go—and please have some fun with this challenge. Submit your most heartfelt or funniest dedication. The person who wows us wins the prize.

The contest ends on December 16, 2009, and we’ll choose one winner on December 18, 2009. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. Good luck!

*Obviously, my dedication was influenced by this week’s prize, as I don’t even own a green bag—yet.

    This is Eliana from the Toronto. Please play “Paper Bag” by Fiona Apple. You were a little fair trade jute and cotton bag handmade by Indian tribal women from One World Projects. I took out my phone as I entered the crowded subway and you slipped off my shoulder… Oh how I remember that fateful day helpless behind the closed doors as the train rushed from the station seeing you on the floor trampled by rush hour traffic. I came back for you on the next train but by then you had been bagnapped. I hope your captors treat you well I hope Fionas wonderful vegan voice convinces them to bring you back to me.

  • Jessy Owens says:

    What’s up what’s up! This is Jessy from Indiana and I would like to dedicate the song “Imagine” by my favorite vegan artist John Lennon to my bag. You keep my unmentionables out of sight and my wallet locked up tight…Imagine all the people living crueltyfree! RIP John 1094012880

  • Amanda Soria says:

    Hey! This is Amanda from Texas! I want to make a shout out to my oh so perfect bag made of cloth. Those perfect little squares of green and pink with hints of gold and your flowery designs stitched together by your wavy strands of blue yellow green and red each color fading into the next. You hang from my shoulder to almost my knee. You gladly hold the essentials I need to survive. I remember the day I got you at Earthbound almost one year ago. When I first laid eyes on you you were so beautiful and I just had to have you and I knew we would never be separate. We haven’t been apart since. I dedicate to you Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.

But now that PETA has shown me the fabulous L’il Lady Bag I see the error of my ways and really really want one! So…if you could please play either “Alone” by Heart as I sit here purseless or “Desire” by U2 while I covet this awesome crueltyfree bag I would appreciate it.
